Splendiferous Chicken Burritos

Every so often I want a change in my chicken fare. These always hit the spot. Last timr I made them the Verbalist pronounced them "Splendiferous" high praise from a 4 year old.

1 lb. diced cooked chicken
8 oz cream cheese
2 mild green chiles diced
1/4 cup sweet yellow onion minced
1 clove garlic minced
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chile powder
black pepper to taste
salt to taste

saute chicken, onion, garlic and chiles until onion sweats and is almost transparent. Add cream cheese in chunks until sauce is creamy and add spices. Remove from heat.

Here you have two options:
Option one: roll in tortillas along with some shredded cheese (jack cheese is preferred - as always it's what is in your fridge that counts), fresh spinach and tomatoes
Option two or the naughty one: roll in tortillas and deep fry 1 1/2 minutes, or until golden, in hot vegetable oil. (I suppose you could bake them but it just isn't the same. 350 for 20 minutes)

If you opt for the frying choice, beware! The filling gets pretty hot. Keep Corona or sweet tea on hand for cooling the mouth.
