  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) Ontario Goat Cheese, softened (about 4 oz/125 g)
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL)  chipotle barbecue sauce (or family favourite)
  • 1 tsp (5 mL)  ground cumin
  • 2  cloves Ontario Garlic, finely minced
  • 1  Ontario Carrot, shredded (about 1/2 cup/125 mL)
  • 1  green onion, thinly sliced         
  • 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) shredded Ontario Cooked Chicken
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded Ontario Smoked Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded Ontario Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped fresh Ontario Coriander
  • 4  large whole wheat or flour tortillas (10-inch/25 cm)
  • 1  Ontario Greenhouse Sweet Red Pepper, cut into 16 thin strips (about 1/4-inch/5 mm thick)


In bowl, combine goat cheese, barbecue sauce, cumin, garlic, carrot and onion. Stir in chicken, mozzarella and Monterey Jack cheese and cilantro; combine thoroughly. Spread evenly over wraps, leaving 1-inch (2.5 cm) border. Place 2 strips of red pepper in a row, 1-1/2-inches (4 cm) from bottom edge of tortilla; repeat with another row above (total of 4 red pepper strips per tortilla). Starting at bottom, roll up each tortilla tightly. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or for up to 24 hours.

To serve, remove plastic wrap; trim ends. Slice each roll into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices. Bake on parchment paper-lined baking sheet in 350°F (180°C) oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until cheese starts to bubble. Let stand for 3 minutes before serving.

Cooking Tip: If you don’t have any leftover cooked chicken, pick up a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Freeze leftover shredded chicken in airtight container or freezer bag for later use. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
