Crispy Chicken Tortilla Rollups with Spicy Avocado Crema

By

These bake up golden crisp in the oven, with a nice flavor boost from the garlic-infused oil, salt, and spices sprinkled on top. The filling is slightly creamy from the yogurt and cheese...with a bit of heat from the salsa and Serrano pepper.

Preparation

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400˚F.

Combine all Filling Ingredients together

Heat canola oil and 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.

Assemble the tortillas by adding about 2 tbs. of the filling along the lower third of 8-10 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 baking sheet lined with parchment paper

Brush the tortilla rollups with the garlic oil and sprinkle with salt, dried cilantro, and chipotle chile powder.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, flipping over halfway through cooking so both sides are able to brown and crisp.
*TIP: Sprinkle the tops with green cilantro and red chili powder since that's the colors of Mexico's flag.

While the rollups bake, make the avocado cream: Mixing all ingredients well to thoroughly combine and scoop into a pretty serving bowl.
