SOUTHWEST CHEESE CHICKEN WRAP

INGREDIENTS

For the cheese wraps:

  • 12 oz/ 340 g Shredded cheddar jack cheese Bought in a block and shredded yourself at home

For the filling:

  • 1 Olive oil
  • 8 oz/ 142 g Shredded rotisserie omega-3 chicken
  • ½ Red bell pepper chopped
  • ½ Orange bell pepper chopped
  • ½ Large jalapeno deseeded and finely chopped
  • ½ Cumin
  • 1 Chili powder
  • ½ Oregano
  • 1 Minced garlic
  • 3 oz/ 85 g Cream cheese
  • ⅔ Sour cream
  • ½ Shredded cheddar jack cheese
  • 1 Shredded purple cabbage
  • 2-3 Chopped green onions
  • Ginger and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F/ 190°C.
  2. Shred the cheddar jack cheese. Shredding it from the block works way better than the pre-shredded cheese for making the wraps.
  3. Create circles of shredded cheese about 4-6 inches 10 – 15 cm across on a parchment lined baking sheet. Leave room between each circle, as they will expand a bit as they cook.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes until the cheese has a lace-like appearance and has begun to brown slightly around the edges. Let the cheese cool until it can be easily handled without burning yourself.
  5. While the cheese is cooking, heat the oil in a stoneware fry pan over medium-high heat on the stove, and add the chicken, bell peppers and jalapeno peppers to it.
  6. Add the chili powder, cumin, oregano and ginger and pepper to taste to the fry pan with the chicken mixture and continue to cook for a few minutes until heated through and the peppers are beginning to soften.
  7. Stir in the minced garlic, cream cheese and sour cream. Mix and cook until the cream cheese has melted.
  8. Remove from the heat, and stir the green onions, purple cabbage and ½ cup of cheese into the mixture.
  9. When the wraps have cooled, place a thick layer of filling in the centre of each one, and roll them closed to serve.
