Chili Chicken Sandwiches

Last night, I made this new recipe that sounded pretty awesome on paper. It was even more awesome after it was done! Included on this sandwich is a combination of all my favorite flavors: chicken, green onions, cilantro, cream cheese, cheddar cheese--OH! This stuff is awesome!

This is THE easiest stuff on the planet to throw together. It will easily make about 8 sandwiches. This would also be good on some crackers!

1 8 ounce package of cream cheese
2 cups of cooked, cubed chicken
1 and 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1 4 ounce can diced green chiles
3 tablespoons of chopped green onions
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
4 hard rolls (or use hamburger buns like I did)
2 tablespoons of fresh minced cilantro

In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese until it is fluffy. Stir in the chicken, cheddar cheese, chilies, green onions, and seasonings. Cut top off of 1/4 of the rolls; carefully hollow out the bottoms of the rolls. Fill the bottoms with the chicken mixture.

Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees until golden brown. Sprinkle with cilantro.

These go great with chips and salsa OR Pioneer Woman's Fried Potato Skins!
