  • 18 Flour Tortillas small, 6 inch
  • 2 cups Chicken cooked and shredded
  • 1 cup Cheese shredded
  • 1 cup Salsa fresh
  • 15 ounce can Black Beans drained and rinsed
  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese softened
  • 1 lime juiced


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Mix together the chicken, shredded cheese, cream cheese, black beans, salsa, and lime juice.
  • Add 2 tablespoon of the mixture onto each tortilla and roll tightly. Place them seam side down on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until they start to turn golden brown.


  • I prefer to use the small 6" tortillas. You can use a larger size if desired, however you would just need to increase the amount of filling.
  • Using a fresh salsa is best and can be found in the produce section of your supermarket.
  • A rotisserie chicken works great for this recipe!
  • I shredded my own extra sharp cheddar. You can substitute your favorite cheese.
  • The juice of one lime equals ~2 Tablespoons.
  • Don't overstuff the tortillas.
  • Serve with your favorite toppings, such as tomatoes, red onion, sliced avocado, guacamole, sour cream, salsa, and/or chipotle sauce.
