{Baked} Chicken Fajita Dippers

With Cinco de Mayo coming up, I really wanted to squeeze one more Mexican food post in. In our house, it’s unusual for everyone to agree on food, but we all love Mexican and Tex-Mex. Sometimes Mexican food can be messy, especially for kids (Who am I kidding? I always make a mess with it, too). These dippers are full of chicken fajita filling in a neat, fairly mess-free little roll-up.

    I made these for a dinner party, and they were a hit!! So easy to make and so delicious. They just flew off the plate! I want to make these again for my husband and I for dinner, but to make it dinner friendly instead of bite size, should I just put more filling in each tortilla? What do you suggest?

    • says

      I’m glad they were a hit! =) You could try using a larger tortilla (like a burrito size)and maybe doubling the amount of filling that the recipe calls for? I hope that helps!

    These are fantastic! I made mine larger than the recipe calls for (I got about seven total dippers), and they were a perfect entree. Your recipes never disappoint!

    I have a question, how do you cook your chicken in preparation for this recipe? Hoping I am not the only one who would like to know…

    • kateheartseating says

      Usually if someone has a question on a recipe, there are other people who have that same question, and I’m happy to answer them!! I just boil the chicken and then shred it once it’s cooked. You could also use leftover plain grilled chicken or rotisserie chicken.

    Oh, these look fantastic! And baking them?! What a fabulous idea! I’ve pinned these to my I Feel Like Chicken Tonight board. I can’t wait to make them :) I followed you from the Whimsy Wednesdays link party, by the way. I also run a Tasty Tuesdays link party on my blog & I’d love it if you could stop by & link up some of your recipes!
