We had a neighborhood cookout this weekend and tried a new appetizer recipe, Spicy Chicken Tortilla Roll Ups, adapted via this blog. They were easy, delicious, and gone very quickly!
Throw all ingredients together, mix, spread, roll, chill, cut, and serve!
Spicy Chicken Tortilla Roll Ups
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I boiled and shredded)
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilis, drained (I used mild)
12 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded cheese blend (I used a mexican blend)
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (I used paprika because I didn’t have this)
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
6 scallions, white and green parts, chopped
6-8 large flour tortillas (I used 7 spinach & herb tortilla)
In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, drained tomatoes, cheese, spices, garlic, cilantro and scallions. Mix together. Add cooled chicken and stir together.
Lay out tortillas and divide mixture evenly in the center of each. Spread into a thin layer leaving the edges clean. Roll each tortilla tightly. At this point, I individually wrapped each tortilla in plastic wrap and chilled them for about an hour. Cut into slices, remove wrap, and transfer to a serving platter.
*These were not super spicy, because I used mild rotel and paprika, but they were absolutely full of flavor and I will be making again for sure!
