  2. Cover and grill chicken and vegetables over medium heat 15 to 18 minutes, shaking basket or stirring mixture occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center and vegetables are crisp-tender.
  3. Spoon mixture onto center of each tortilla; top with avocado and additional salsa. Roll tortillas around filling.
