1. Heat shredded chicken according to microwave instructions. 2. If making warm wraps, when chicken is in microwave, place tortillas in sealed foil in preheated oven at 300 degrees for approximately 8-10 minutes, for soft, warm tortillas. 3. If making cold wraps, just be sure tortillas are at room temperature. This is to ensure pliability without cracking when rolling or wraping up into burrito. 4. Drain chicken and set aside. 5. Puree salsa to smoothe texture. 6. Using a spoon or spatula, mix puree'd salsa with cumin, green onion, & cream cheese, then blend in chicken. 7. Spread tortilla evenly with chicken & cheese mixture all over wrap. 8. Place vegetables in first 3rd to middle of wrap. Leave room to roll up. 9. If making pinwheels, roll up wrap & cut into 1 1/2 inch. rounds. If making wraps, fold up ends, then roll up & slice diagnonally (for presentation). 10. If making cold, tightly wrap up pinwheel with plastic wrap & refrigerate or place in ice chest until ready to serve. If making wraps warm, heat completed wrap on flat griddle or grill to melt cheese and reheat chicken within. 11. Garnish or decorate according to age or preference, & have fun eating your own personalized creation!
