Fiesta Chicken Bundles Recipe

“I love to make this chicken dish because while it bakes, I can take a siesta before the fiesta! I dreamed it up when I was on vacation and had limited ingredients. It’s packed with great flavor, and my family really enjoys it.” —Merry Graham, Newhall, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (6 ounces each)
  • 4 corn tortillas (6 inches), chopped
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 1-1/4 cups salsa verde, divided

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) Southwestern black beans, warmed


  • 1. Flatten chicken breasts to 1/4-in. thickness; set aside. In a small bowl, combine the tortillas, cheese and 1/2 cup salsa verde. Spoon tortilla mixture down the center of each chicken breast; roll up and secure with toothpicks.

"Love it! I followed the directions down to serving w/ sour cream, cilantro, and black beans... but only because I forgot them! I really like the marmalade in the sauce - makes me want to try that in other things!"

"Tried making this, but I played with some of the ingredients since I am very much a wimp when it comes to spicy food. I used a mild salsa instead of salsa verde, garlic instead of garlic salt, and did not have any cilantro for the topping. I also served the finished product on top of red beans and rice that I made from a boxed mix. I found it easy to make, and the end result was flavorful. I would argue that this makes eight servings if you are pairing it with black beans (or beans and rice, like I did), since a half a stuffed roll seemed like plenty for me. Others may feel differently. I also liked that this reheated very well - it was easy for me to come home at night, pop it in the microwave and spread some sour cream on top to have a good meal. I'd make it again, and will probably continue to tinker with the ingredients / proportions until I get something that really suits my tastes."
