Taste buds tingle when I serve these tempting tortillas stuffed with a zesty mixture of chicken, refried beans, salsa and jalapeno peppers. It's a savory dish that makes any buffet a fiesta. -Dean Schrock, Jacksonville, Florida

MY REVIEW

Very different. Flavor was good. Not too hard to whip together on weeknight.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 4, 2011

After 2 weeks of very German style dishes over the Christmas holiday, I wanted something very NOT German. So I pulled this recipe out that I'd clipped quite a while ago. I put in green bell peppers instead of the jalapeno because that's what I had. My 3 year old helped me with the preparation and while I spread the filling, he was eating it off the spatula out of the food processor.

My 4 year old and husband also LOVED this dish. We will definitely make it again. Sometime I'm going to try it with beef for something different!

Excellent! I will add twice as much chicken next time, though.

Very tasty. I used jumpin jack and pepper jack cheese and skipped the jalopenos. For the immediately hungry members of the family, I folded the tortillas and grilled them on my panini press with a little extra cheese. I also tried it with a home-made enchilada sauce spread under and over the roll-ups. Very good.

My husband and I have a weak spot for mexican food and have made this multiple times. It is a flavorful dish that is easy to make. I never add the jalapeno's or cilantro however. Also, I do not own a food processor, so I just shredd the chicken instead. A hit in my home!
