Crispy Chicken Tortilla Rollups for #WeekdaySupper


1/3 cup canola oil + 2 grated garlic cloves
8-10 flour tortillas
2 tsp. dried cilantro
2 tsp. chili powder
For the filling:
6 ounces non-fat Greek yogurt
12 ounces cooked chicken, shredded [NOTE: a deli roasted chicken is perfect for this!]
1 cup co-jack cheese
½ cup corn kernels
1 small jalapeno or serrano pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1-2 green onions, sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced or grated
1/3 cup salsa
1 tsp. cumin
Juice of half a lime
Salt and pepper to taste
For the avocado-lime dipping sauce:
1 ripe avocado, peeled and mashed
6 ounces nonfat plain Greek yogurt
Juice and zest of one lime
1 tsp. dried cilantro
2-3 drops Tabasco

How to make it:

Salt & pepper to taste
Step 1: Preheat oven to 400. Add the filling ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Stir with a spatula or spoonula, until evenly mixed. Heat the  canola oil and two grated garlic cloves in a small saucepan over med heat. When the oil is hot, turn off the heat and let the garlic infuse into the oil for 5-10 minutes.
Step 2: Assemble the tortillas by adding about 2 tbs. of the filling along the lower third of the flour tortillas -- feel free to sprinkle with a bit more cheese on top if you like it extra cheesy! Roll up and place seam side down on a large rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment.
Step 3:  Brush each tortilla rollup with the garlic oil and sprinkle with the salt, dried cilantro, and chile powder. Bake for 8-10 minutes, flipping over halfway through cooking so both sides brown and crisp nicely. Serve on a platter with guacamole, salsa, and/or sour cream on the side for dipping.
Make the dipping sauce and serve it in a decorative serving bowl on the side.
These rollups are sensational! They feature a crispy, flavorful outside…and a gooey, spicy inside. I love the hint of sweetness that the corn kernels add, as well as the slight tang from the yogurt and lime juice. These taquitos also make a fantastic addition to gameday spreads -- simply cut them in half for easier eating. Since there’s two of us at my house, I’ve found that these rollups freeze and reheat well too. Spicy, crispy, cheesy and comforting? Sign me up!
