This recipe for chicken wraps is especially easy and convenient because the ingredients are pre-packaged; so there is no need for cooking or chopping, and clean up is a cinch! Making these chicken and bacon roll ups is simply a matter of mixing the ingredients (cream cheese, salsa, bacon and chicken) in a bowl, then spreading it onto the tortillas. (Turkey breast may be used instead of chicken, if desired.) Roll them up, stick them in the fridge until you're ready to serve them, then slice and serve! You can adjust the level of spice by the choosing mild, medium or spicy chunky salsa.


  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 10-oz. canned chicken breast (or turkey breast) chunks, drained
  • 1/3 cup crumbled bacon
  • 1/2 cup chunky salsa
  • 6 8-inch soft flour tortillas
In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, bacon and salsa and stir until cream cheese is smooth and all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Add chicken and gently stir until combined and chicken chunks have broken up into smaller spreadable pieces.

Spread mixture evenly over each tortilla. Roll tortillas up, then wrap in pastic wrap and store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

When ready to serve, slice wraps into 1-inch pieces (or if serving as a meal, do not slice and simply serve whole).
