How to Make Chicken Avocado Roll Ups

Start by combining the filling ingredients in a mixing bowl: shredded chicken (breast or thigh meat), avocado, red onion, bell pepper, green onion, shredded cheese, minced parsley, lime juice and garlic powder. Then mix together, mashing the avocado as you go.

Next, place an 8-10 inch flour tortilla on a work surface (use any type of flour tortilla you like including whole wheat). Spread a 1/2-inch thick layer of filling evenly across the tortilla using a spoon or offset spatula.

Using your fingertips, roll up the tortilla as tightly as you can and then slice into 1 1/2-inch wide pieces. Repeat the process for the rest of the filling and remaining tortillas. You should get about 24 pieces in total to serve 8 people.

You can serve them right away or refrigerate for up to 4 hours covered with plastic wrap to prevent discoloration.
