Cinco de Mayo Chicken Fajita Rolls & Buffalo Chicken Rolls!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
I got this idea from another food blog and thought it looked like a great appetizer!  On her blog, she made a delicious Buffalo Chicken Roll - I wanted to make those... but also try one with fajita ingredients!  YUM

You'll need:

1 rotisserie chicken
1 package of egg roll wraps

Buffalo Chicken Rolls:
1 package of broccoli slaw
1/4 cup buffalo sauce (1/4 cup Frank's Red Hot + 1 tbsp melted butter)
crumbled blue cheese

Chicken Fajita Rolls:
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow onion
1 lime
2 tsp taco seasoning
shredded pepper jack cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
First, remove and shred the meat from the chicken (just pull it with your fingers or use a fork)
Divide the chicken into 2 bowls.  I used all the white meat from the breast and some dark meat from the legs.  (The skin came off when I did this - so I ran a knife through all the skin and added that at the end)
Slice up about 1/4 of the onion and 1/4 of the bell pepper very thinly.
Above is the mixture of buffalo sauce and lime/taco seasoning.
Add the juice of one lime and 2 tbs taco seasoning to one of the chicken bowls.
Tazzy, which is better:  socks or chicken???
Add the buffalo sauce to the second chicken bowl.
Now for the tricky section - making the rolls!  Lay out one egg roll wrap, add a bit of the broccoli slaw.
Next, spoon on some of the buffalo chicken mixture.  (I could have just sat down with that bowl of chicken and a fork it was so damn good...)  Finally, add a few crumbles of blue cheese and roll the wrap shut.

Place a wire rack on a baking sheet - also spray the rack with an oil cooking spray.  Then put each roll on the rack and spray each one with oil.

Bake for about 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. 
Now for the chicken fajita ones!  Place a few slices of pepper and onion on the wrap.
Next, spoon on some of the taco seasoned chicken mixture and then pepper jack cheese.  Fold up the wraps like you did with the other ones.  (seriously, watch that video!  I should have... you can tell mine came out a little on the rectangular side!)
Finally, plate them with whatever might be good to dip them in!  I wanted some guacamole for the Chicken Fajita Rolls!  (also - these do not come out as crispy as a deep fried egg roll, but they do have a good baked crunch.  Pop them under the broiler for a minute or two if you want to really crisp them up)
