Southwestern Chicken Wraps

1.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
12 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup monterey jack cheese
3 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
6 scallions, chopped
8-10 large spinach tortillas
*NOTE - after trying these, we decided they would be really (REALLY) good with black beans and corn, too.  If you try it - leave us a comment and let us know how it worked!

  1. SEASON the chicken with salt, half of the cumin, and 1 teaspoon of the chili powder.
  2. PLACE chicken on a skillet with 1 cup of water.  Cook on medium high until cooked through.  Set aside, allow to cool.
  3. COMBINE cream cheese, drained tomatoes, cheese, remaining chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, garlic salt, cilantro, and scallions.  Stir until well blended.
  4. DICE chicken and add to cream cheese mixture.  Stir until well blended.
  5. LAY out tortillas and spread mixture, slightly off center (so it's easier to roll).
  6. ROLL up tortillas tightly, but do not fold in the ends.
  7. CUT the tortillas in to small (1") pieces, and enjoy!
