  2. Remove the chicken to a plate. Transfer the cooking liquid and vegetables to a blender; add the tomatoes and allspice and puree with the lid ajar. Wipe out the skillet, add the remaining 1 Tbsp oil and place over medium-high heat. Add the tomato mixture and cook until slightly reduced, 6 minutes. Pour into a baking dish.
  3. Brush the tortillas with olive oil and put on a baking sheet; bake 5 minutes. Shred the chicken. Top each tortilla with chicken and cheese, then roll upand arrange in the baking dish, seam-side down, spooning some sauce on top. Bake until the cheese melts, about 4 minutes.
  4. Toss the herbs, remaining onion, and season with salt to taste. Sprinkle on top. Enjoy!
