More About This Recipe

  • Wanna know the great thing about being an adult? Freedom of eatage, baby. Oh you think I'm kidding? I just ate my weight in these insane Baked Chicken and Cheese Pinwheels, at the age of 36, with my yoga pants on, not a child in sight, and not a fleck of self judgment surfaced. Not. A. Fleck. As a matter of fact, I'm going to go lock myself in the bathroom and finish off this platter right now, thanks. Go freedom! (I mean, they totally work for quick and easy weeknight kid's meal too, if you're into that sort of thing.) Grab some large spinach tortillas, a rotisserie chicken (that you shred), some yuuuummy Monterey Jack cheese, Old El Paso chopped chiles, and some Old El Paso™ hot and spicy taco seasoning! Or whatever level of heatage you prefer. Grab some cilantro too! New weeknight favorite right here, y'all. And I was totally kidding about locking myself in the bathroom! I'll be in the bedroom closet.
