For Rolling and Frying:

  • 8flour tortillas,(6-inch)
  • canola oil,or avocado or grape seed oil, for frying or baking



    1. In a large non-stick skillet set over medium heat, add the oil. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken and corn. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the mixture starts to brown. 

    2. Add the bell pepper, onion, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, cumin, and paprika. Mix until combined and continue cooking for 3 additional minutes.

    3. Add beans, spinach and cilantro. Cook just until the spinach has wilted, then remove from the heat and stir in the cheese.

    4. Divide the mixture evenly between the 8 tortillas. Roll up, taking care to tuck the ends snuggly in to create a nice seal and prevent the mixture from oozing out or oil from getting in. 

    5. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add about half a cup of oil to the skillet, let the oil get hot. Add 4 rolls at a time (seam side down) and fry until all sides are golden brown.

    6. Remove and let rest on a paper towel lined plate before serving. Repeat with remaining rolls.

    7. Serve with sour cream, salsa or guacamole.
