Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked chicken , shredded (I use rotisserie)
  • 6 ounces cream cheese , softened
  • 1/4 cup salsa your favorite kind
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves , chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper for taste
  • 8-10 large flour tortillas (*see note)

Instructions

  • Lightly grease a baking sheet or line the bottom with parchment paper.
  • Add cream cheese, salsa and sour cream to a mixing bowl and stir until smooth. 
  • Add remaining ingredients (except the tortillas) and toss to combine. Taste and add more seasoning, if needed.
  • Place a large spoonful of filling in a line along a flour tortilla and roll tightly. Place seam side down on prepared pan. 
  • Repeat with remaining filling mixture and tortillas. Lightly brush the tops of the tortillas with a little bit of oil, or spray them with cooking spray.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F, for 18-22 minutes or until tortillas are cooked and lightly golden brown.

Notes

*I like to use the Tortilla Land brand of uncooked tortillas, (you can roll them up in the raw tortillas--no need to pre-cook them) but you could also use regular store-bought flour tortillas or corn tortillas.
