I love Mexican food but a lot of it is too spicy for me, so I've created this excellent, low-spiced version of rolled chicken tacos.

  • Use an electric food processor or blender to puree the olives. In a mixing bowl, combine salsa, olives, and chicken. Heat tortillas in microwave for about 20 to 30 seconds.

  • Place 1 to 2 tablespoons of the chicken mixture into the center of each warmed tortilla and roll the tortillas tightly, using toothpicks to keep them closed.

  • Heat oil in skillet over a high heat. When the oil is hot, place the rolled taco into the oil and deep fry until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels and serve.

Very yummy. I mixed in some green chilies and a little cheese. I folded them like mini burritos to keep the cheese in. I served with Mexican rice and sour cream. This recipe really makes a lot. I still had leftovers after using the entire package of tortillas so I will make some quesadillas with the leftovers. Thanks for the quick easy recipe! Read More

Yummy! My whole family (husband and kids ages 5 & 3) loved these. They didn't take too long and were VERY easy. My husband said the only thing they were missing was some sour cream (we ate them with no toppings). Read More
