How to make it

  • Place cilantro, garlic, oil, lime, salt and pepper in blender and puree until smooth
  • Mix cream cheese, salsa and chipotle pepper in a small bowl
  • Cut both tortillas into squares by removing rounded edges with a knife
  • Place one tortilla in a microwave and cook on high for 10 seconds
  • Place tortilla on a sushi rolling mat (if you have one)
  • Spread 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture on one half of the tortilla
  • Spread 1/2 of the refried beans on the other half leaving a 1/4 inch at the edge with nothing on it
  • With the 1/4 inch edge away from you:
  • Place 1/2 of the red pepper slices in the middle of the tortilla (left to right edge)
  • Place 1/2 of the green onions
  • Place 1/2 of the roasted chicken
  • Place 1/2 of the pequillo peppers
  • Place 1/2 of the avocado slices
  • Roll from the edge closest to you until just the bare 1/4 inch edge is left
  • If you are familiar with rolling sushi, this is the point where you pull the roll tight inside the mat. The object is to pack the ingredients tight inside the roll. Pull and roll until the ingredients compress and fill to the outside ends of the tortilla.
  • Wet the exposed edge with a fingertip of water
  • Continue rolling until the roll seals itself
  • Remove from the sushi mat and place on a cutting board
  • Cut the roll in half with a sharp knife
  • Place the two halves next to each other and cut into 3rds (six pieces when done)
  • Repeat with the second tortilla
  • Plate 3 pieces on each plate (4 plates of 3) and drizzle with the cilantro oil

    Neat-O, but this is certainly what restaurants are now calling it. They are now actually cooking the sushi. Find more on my website.

    Elgourmand...Chopsticks or just fingers works like a charm. They are really yummy and a nice twist.

    Great stuff Hotpad. This I gotta try. Should I eat it with chopsticks? If you like Mexican have a look at my Chile Rellenos de Puebla. Bueno Camida (good eating) RJ

    Great idea....have you heard of Guy Fieri's Tex Wasabi restaurant? He does off-the-wall sushi rolls...your recipe could be categorized as MEX-Washabi! Mmmmm.
