  • 4 Large Tortillas
  • Large bunch of asparagus approx 20
  • 2 Large Cans of Chicken or 2-3 shredded breasts
  • 1/2 C. Chopped Nuts
  • 1/2 C. Craisins
  • 4 oz of Regular Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 container or so of Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Mayo
  • Garlic Powder


  • If you are cooking chicken breasts, get them cooked and shredded.
  • Cook your asparagus to preferred state - You will want it a little crunchy!
  • Chop your nut of choice.
  • Combine the chicken, nuts, Craisins, Regular Cream Cheese, Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese, Mayo and Garlic Powder and mix by hand or in a mixer.
  • Judge the taste to your preference.
  • Adjust the amount of Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese and Garlic powder if needed. I like mine to have a little bit stronger taste.
  • Strain the cooked asparagus good.
  • Spread the chicken mixture evenly on a tortilla.
  • Place the already cooked asparagus on the edge of the tortilla and roll the tortilla around the asparagus one turn.
  • Place another asparagus on the tortilla and roll again.
  • Repeat until the tortilla is all the way rolled. I usually fit 4-5 asparagus, per tortilla.
  • Cover the rolled tortilla in plastic wrap or Press N' Seal.
  • Refrigerate for 3-4 hours or overnight.
  • To speed up the process, you can freeze for the first hour. Then cut the asparagus rolls into 1/2" (or so) pieces!
