  • 15x10x2 Sheet Pan
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Large Bowl


  • 4 cups chicken cooked (shredded, rotisserie chicken works great)
  • 1 cup salsa verde (the green salsa)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15 ounce) can corn drained
  • cups Colby Jack shredded cheese divided
  • 12-14 flour tortillas  (soft taco size)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line a large baking sheet (15 x 10 x 1 inches) with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together chicken, salsa, cream cheese, black beans, corn, and 1 cup shredded cheese.
  • Add 2-3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture and roll up, then place seam-side down on the prepared pan. Repeat this process until all the chicken mixture is used up.
  • Sprinkle remaining cheese on top of tortillas and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the tortillas start to turn golden brown (the edges of the tortilla will turn golden first).
  • Remove from oven and serve with your favorite toppings (salsa, guacamole, sour cream, lettuce, etc).


We like to serve this with Mexican Street Corn Salad and Spanish Brown Rice
