Thought these sounded good, similar to a beef spiral I posted,except these are baked. (from the local newpaper)

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.
