Steps (5)

  1. 1
    Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with olive oil cooking spray.
  2. 2
    Place a large sauté pan over medium heat and add olive oil. Add onion and cook until tender, about 6 minutes. Add garlic and jalapeño and cook another 2 minutes. Add chili powder, cumin, cayenne and allow to toast for 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the stove and allow to cool completely.
  3. 3
    In a large bowl add the cooled onion mixture, chicken, lime, cream cheese and Monterey Jack cheese and mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. 4
    Working with one tortilla at a time, place about 2 tablespoons of the chicken mixture at the bottom of the tortilla and roll to close. Place seam-side down on the baking sheet, spray the top with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Repeat with remaining filling and tortillas.
  5. 5
    Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown and filling is warmed through. Remove from the oven, garnish with cilantro leaves and serve with Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dressing to serve.
