About this Recipe

Dempster’s® crunchy fried corn tortillas wrapped around tender shredded chicken and classic Mexican flavours. Bet you can’t eat just one!


2 Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, cooked, shredded
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) Grated Pepper Jack cheese
2 cups (500 mL) Salsa, divided
1 tbsp (15 mL) Lime juice
1 tsp (5 mL) Cumin
1/2 tsp (2 mL) Chili powder
2 Cloves garlic, minced
1 cup (250 mL) Diced onion
Salt and pepper
16 Dempster’s® Corn Tortillas
4 cups Vegetable oil for deep frying
1 cup (250 mL) Sour cream
1 cup (250 mL) Prepared Guacamole, optional


HEAT oil to 375˚F (190˚C). (This step is mentioned later on as well.)

COMBINE chicken, cheese, 1 cup (250 mL) salsa, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, garlic, onion, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

SPOON about 2 tbsp (30 mL) of chicken mixture on lower third of each tortilla. Roll the tortilla as tightly as possible and secure with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

HEAT oil in a large deep pan to about 375°F (190°C). Fry tortillas 4 or 5 at a time. Do not overcrowd pan. Once tortillas float, fry an additional minute. Tortillas should be crisp. Drain on paper towel.

Serve with remaining salsa, sour cream and guacamole.


Serve over shredded lettuce.
