How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Combine 1/2 cup salsa and sour cream in a small bowl. Combine chicken and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Spread 2 tablespoons salsa mixture over each tortilla. Spoon 1/2 cup chicken mixture evenly down center of each tortilla; roll up. Place rolls, seam sides down, in a 13 x 9–inch glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with remaining 1/2 cup salsa.

  3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese; bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese melts.

  4. Nutrition note: Wrap It Up Whole-wheat tortillas are a great way to add some fun to ordinary sandwiches and snacks. Forget the bread, and try sandwich fixings like turkey, ham, cheeses, hummus, and veggies wrapped in a tortilla. Or be more adventurous with tossed salads, scrambled eggs, or peanut butter and banana slices. Opt for whole-wheat or whole-grain tortillas with 3 grams of fat or less to maximize nutrient content, and watch the size and calorie content. Some tortillas can have up to 300 calories each! Smaller whole-grain taco or fajita-size tortillas (6-inch or 7-inch) are usually perfect for kids and typically have around 130 calories and 3 to 5 grams of fiber.
