I found this to be ok. A little dry, in my opinion. Maybe I overprocessed the filling? It was more like a pate style filling. I would make this again, but I would need a sauce on top to give it a bit more moisture. I did not have jalapeno on hand, so I added chopped green chiles. I wish I would have had cilantro, as I think that would have added a flavor that was missing. I liked the idea of the smooth filling, which is why I will try this again, but with a sauce. All 9 of us did eat is and enjoyed, but we all agreed that it was a bit dry and needed an enchilada sauce.

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!
