Between your holiday shopping, your job, your family, and other responsibilities, you also have to keep yourself fed. The holiday season makes it trickier to prepare large meals, but today’s spicy chicken tortilla roll-up recipe should simplify matters. You can have these tasty treats done and ready to serve in under thirty minutes. Let’s take a look at the ingredients.
- One and a half pounds of skinless and boneless chicken breast
- Six to eight large flour tortillas
- A can of drained and diced Ro-tel tomatoes
- Six scallions with the white and green parts chopped
- Twelve ounces of softened cream cheese
- A ¼ cup of chopped cilantro
- A cup of shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese
- Half a teaspoon of garlic salt
- A clove of minced garlic
- Half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- Three teaspoons of ancho chili powder
- Half a teaspoon of cumin
Begin by seasoning the chicken breast with half of the cumin, salt, and a teaspoon of the chili powder. Place the chicken in a large skillet and then add a cup of water before covering it and cooking on medium-high heat for about eight minutes or until it’s cooked through. If it’s necessary, feel free to add more water. Once the chicken is ready, place it on a plate or cutting board and allow it to cool slightly before shredding it with a pair of forks.
Use a mixing bowl to combine the cream cheese, scallions, drained tomatoes, cilantro, cheese, garlic, and whatever spices you have left. Mix them well before adding the cooled chicken and stirring everything together.
Lay out each tortilla and evenly distribute the mixture in the center of each one before spreading it to create a thin layer, leaving about a half-inch border around the edges of the tortilla. Roll up each one tightly, making sure not to fold the ends in. Use a knife to to cut into one-inch thick slices and move your roll-ups over to a serving platter. Refrigerate them until it’s time to serve.
