Thought these sounded good, similar to a beef spiral I posted,except these are baked. (from the local newpaper)
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1 cup diced cooked chicken
- 1⁄4 lb monterey jack cheese, shredded
- 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh coriander or 1 teaspoon dried coriander
- 2 tablespoons diced fresh jalapeno peppers or 2 tablespoons diced canned jalapeno peppers
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 3 (10 inch) flour tortillas
- vegetable oil
- sour cream
- In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, chicken, monterey jack, coriander, jalapeno peppers, and cumin.
- Spread mixture evenly over tortillas.
- Roll up each tortilla tightly around chicken mixture.
- Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- Just before serving, cut each tortilla roll into 1/2 inch slices.
- Arrange on greased baking sheet, brush with oil, bake in 350 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Serve hot with salsa and sour cream.
Wonderful appetizers. The filling is rich and zesty. I used 1 cup shredded MJ cheese. Very easy to make. I have always served my spirals cold but they were very good baked and served hot. A little crisper texture. I highly recommend this for any party or just as a snack. Thanks Dorothy.
I made these for a SuperBowl party. After making these, I was going to rate them 4 stars, because I thought they were kind of a pain (cooking and dicing the chicken, and it didn't spread very easily on the tortillas). But after tasting them and getting everyone else's response to them, I decided they were worth the work. I didn't get time to bake them (the oven was full), but will try that next time. I also didn't add the coriander to the mixture, but cooked the chicken with it.
I served these for our appetizer supper. They were fabulous. I used dried coriander because my little herb garden is caput right now. The filling was so delicious--spicy and very zesty. I made two batches and froze one because I have a party in a few weeks and I plan on serving them. I also wanted to see how well they freeze and rethaw. We love your recipes, Dorothy and this one is another one of your greats. Thanks.
