Shredded chicken, fresh veggies, and chipotle flavor make this a tasty and healthy dish. Dipping them in a tangy cilantro lime sauce just adds to the flavor. Also a great appetizer idea!

Tex Mex Chicken Roll Ups

 

Making the Tex Mex Roll Ups

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine the black beans, corn, bell pepper, and cilantro into a mixing bowl, set aside. Saute the shredded chicken, chipotle rub and and salt over medium heat, add a dash of water if it gets too dry. After about 2 minutes, add the veggie mixture to the saute pan and cook for an additional couple minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Once complete, transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl.

 

Warm your tortillas (stove top or oven) and spoon a row of the mixture down the middle of each. Roll them up tightly, sealing them with a bit of water to help the tortillas stick shut. Line them up in a a baking pan and spray a thin layer of vegetable oil over the roll ups. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until they are lightly browned. Once cool, cut into halves or thirds and serve.

 

Making the Cilantro Lime Dip

Simply combine all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. No food processor? Try using a blender.

 

Hope you enjoy these Tex Mex Roll Ups, we sure did!
