    Prep Time: 20 Minutes
    Cook Time: 12 Minutes Ready In: 4 Hours 32 Minutes
    Yields: 5 servings
    "An assortment of traditional Southwestern-style ingredients are wrapped inside small flour tortillas and deep fried."
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1 skinless, boneless chicken
    breast half
    2 tablespoons minced green
    2 tablespoons minced red bell
    1/3 cup frozen corn kernels
    1/4 cup black beans, rinsed
    and drained
    2 tablespoons frozen chopped
    spinach, thawed and drained
    2 tablespoons diced jalapeno peppers (can use diced green chilis also)
    1/2 tablespoon minced fresh
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    1/3 teaspoon salt
    1 pinch ground cayenne
    3/4 cup shredded Monterey
    Jack cheese ( may use pepper jack cheese)
    5 (6 inch) flour tortillas (or egg roll wraps)
    1 quart oil for deep frying
    1. Rub 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over chicken breast. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook chicken approximately 5 minutes per side, until meat is no longer pink and juices run clear. Remove from heat and set aside.
    2. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in green onion and red pepper. Cook and stir 5 minutes, until tender.
    3. Dice chicken and mix into the pan with onion and red pepper. Mix in corn, black beans, spinach, jalapeno peppers, cilantro, cumin, chili powder, salt and cayenne pepper. Cook and stir 5 minutes, until well blended and tender. Remove from heat and stir in Monterey Jack cheese so that it melts.
    4. **Wrap tortillas with a clean, lightly moist cloth. Microwave on high approximately 1 minute, or until hot and pliable. Or use egg roll wrappers.
    5. Spoon even amounts of the mixture into each tortilla/egg roll. Fold ends of tortillas, then roll tightly around mixture. Secure with toothpicks. Arrange in a medium dish, cover with plastic, and place in the freezer. Freeze at least 4 hours.
    6. **In a large, deep skillet, heat oil for deep frying to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Deep fry frozen, stuffed tortillas 10 minutes each, or until dark golden brown. Drain on paper towels before serving.

    7. OR bake at 425 for 20-25 minutes until golden.
