Is one of your New Year resolutions to host more social gatherings? If so, you’re going to want to diversify your menu when you host your parties. Today’s Spicy Chicken Tortilla Roll-Ups recipe is easy to prepare in advance and is packed with rich flavor.
- One and a half pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breast
- Six to eight flour tortillas
- A can of diced and drained Ro-tel tomatoes
- Six scallions, white and green parts chopped
- Twelve ounces of softened cream cheese
- A ¼ cup of chopped cilantro
- A cup of shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- Half a teaspoon of garlic salt
- A clove of minced garlic
- Half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- Three teaspoons of ancho chili powder
- A teaspoon of cumin
Begin by seasoning the chicken breast with half of the cumin, a teaspoon of the chili powder, and some salt. Move it over to a large skillet and add a cup of water before covering it and cooking over medium-high heat until it’s cooked through, it should take about eight minutes. Feel free to add more water should it be necessary. When the chicken is ready, move it over to a plate or cutting board, allow it cool a bit, and then shred it with a pair of forks.
Use a mixing bowl to thoroughly combine the scallions, cream cheese, tomatoes, cheese, cilantro, garlic, and whatever spices are left before adding the cooled chicken and stirring it in. Lay out the tortillas and place an even amount of the mixture in the center of each one, making sure to leave a border of about a half-inch along the edges. Roll up each tortilla tightly but do not fold the edges in like a burrito, allow them to remain free.
Using a knife, cut inch-thick slices and move them over to a serving platter. Should any end pieces unroll, just enjoy whatever extras you have left. Cover the roll-ups and refrigerate until it’s time to serve.
