Jalapeno Popper Mini Burritos

My husband is a huge fan of cream cheese Jalapeno Poppers. Myself on the other hand love the cheddar cheese jalapeno poppers. I decided to incorporate both flavors into my mini burritos. They are so simple to prepare and make the perfect dinner or appetizer. These are packed with spicy cheesy goodness!

Jalapeno Popper Mini Burritos
Makes 8 Burritos
Cal 243, Carbs 27.8, Fat 6, Fiber 3g, Protein 17

2 cups cooked and shredded chicken breast (I used shredded chicken tenders)
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
2 oz light cream cheese
2 jalapenos, seeded and diced
1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar jack cheese, divided
1 jar salsa (I used Pace White Bean Salsa)
1 1/4 cups cooked brown rice
8 whole wheat flour tortillas (I used Mission Brand)
3 slices bacon cooked and crumbled

In a large bowl combine chicken, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin,  cream cheese, jalapenos, half of the cheddar jack, half of the salsa and bacon. Mix well.

Assemble burritos by spreading chicken mixture down the middle of the tortilla. Add in some of the brown rice. Fold burritos and place in a lightly sprayed 9x13 baking dish. Top with remaining salsa and shredded cheese.

Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. Top with sour cream and green onion or cilantro if desired. Enjoy!
