    Ingredients

    • 1 pound chicken breasts shredded
    • 1 juiced lime
    • 2 cloves garlic pressed or coarsely chopped
    • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
    • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

    *Chicken Mixture*

    • 1/3 cup cream cheese
    • 1/4 cup green salsa
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
    • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic or garlic powder
    • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
    • 2 tablespoons onions
    • 1 cup grated pepperjack cheese
    • 20 small corn tortillas or flour
    • kosher salt
    • cooking spray

    Instructions

    • Heat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray.
    • Heat cream cheese in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds so it’s soft and easy to stir. Add green salsa, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, and granulated garlic. Stir to combine and then add cilantro and green onions. Add chicken and cheese and combine well.
    • Work with a few tortillas at a time and heat in the microwave until they are soft enough to roll without cracking. It helps to place them between damp paper towels. Usually 20-30 seconds will do it. If you find yours are cracking when you roll them or are coming unrolled right away, just try heating them longer and try placing them between damp paper towels.
    • Place 2-3 T of chicken mixture on the lower third of a tortilla, keeping it about 1/2 inch from the edges and roll up.
    • Place seem of tortilla on pan, spray with pam and sprinkle some salt on top.
    • Cook for 15 min….and enjoy!!!
