  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  2. Stir in scallions and red pepper.
  3. Cook and stir for 5 minutes, until tender-crisp.
  4. Mix diced chicken into the pan with onion and red pepper.
  5. Mix in corn, black beans, spinach, jalapeno peppers, cilantro, cumin, chili powder, salt and cayenne pepper.
  6. Cook and stir for 5 minutes, until well blended and veggies are tender.
  7. Remove from heat and stir in Mexican cheese until blended in.
  8. Wrap tortillas with a clean, lightly moist cloth, and microwave on high approximately 1 minute, or until warm and pliable.
  9. Spoon even amounts of the filling down the center of each tortilla.
  10. Fold in ends of tortillas; flip top half of tortilla over filling, and then roll it tightly around the filling.
  11. Secure each rolled tortilla with a toothpick.
  12. Arrange rolls in a 9 x 13 glass dish that has been rubbed generously with olive oil (glass helps brown the rolls as they bake, and the coating of oil is needed to help it along in the browning and crisping process)...if you want to go for even more crispness, you can rub each roll with just a wee bit of olive oil before placing them in the baking dish.
  13. Bake in a hot oven, 425 to 475 degrees, until rolls begin to brown (NOTE: the tortillas will usually brown on the bottom FIRST, so watch that closely so you don’t burn them). When tortilla is browned on one side, flip the rolls and brown the other side.
  14. If they haven’t browned after 15 minutes in the oven, turn on the broiler and watch them very closely until the tops brown – flip and broil the other side until brown.
  15. Remove from oven and cut each tortilla in half to serve (making the cut on a slant makes for a pretty presentation).
  16. Serve with Cilantro Verde Cream Sauce, posted separately.
  17. NOTE: These can be wrapped individually in saran wrap and frozen before baking...thaw and bake whenever you're ready for some!
