Oh my gosh...these are guuuuuddd...

A good ole entree here for ya, folks. In the past I've posted a variety of dessert recipes; that's where my confidence lies. Consulting Taste of Home's Simple and Delicious, I at last found Triumph in an entree. And I like the feeling.

Try 'em. They're easy (finally!) and really yum-O!

Chili Chicken Sandwiches

1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies
3 Tbsp chopped green onions
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp chili powder
4 hard rolls
2 Tbsp minced fresh cilantro

~In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Stir in the chicken, cheddar cheese, chilies, onions, and seasonings. Cut top fourths off of rolls; carefully hollow out bottoms, leaving 1/4-in shells (discard removed bread or save for another use). Fill bottom portions with chicken mixture; replace the tops.
~Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with cilantro. Yield: 4 servings
~Extra toppings: sliced avocados, tomatoes

Let me know if you try it and like it! Up the ante on the seasonings if you like really spicy. Recipe is mild as is.

Hey mindy--those look yummy. Bet it would be delicious if you used some bread dough (like the Texas rolls) and thawed them, filled with this, and then baked the filled rolls--kind of like bierocks. I'm a sucker for fresh-baked bread! I don't have a google id, but it's me, Amanda. : )
