Totally in love with these Southwestern Chicken Roll-Ups ! We eat lots of Chicken and I am forever hunting for new recipes to try, especially from other countries.

As I understand it, Southwestern is a US dish. What I would like to ask all my US friends and readers, what exactly makes a dish Southwestern ?

I have Googled (of course, I did), but I would love to hear from you as well !

These Roll-Ups are tender and so juicy, not what one would expect to find in a chicken fillet dish baked in the oven.

And as you should know by now, if you have been following With A Blast for a while, my family loves the sweet/sour combination in salty dishes.

Anyhow, this is a slice open, fill and bake recipe – right up my ally and while this is in the oven I can quickly get the side dishes ready.

Chiles, cumin, cilantro are Southwest flavors to me. Garnishing with cheese, avocado, and sour cream fit the bill too. However, I live in the deep south in Cajun country and am certainly no expert on SW cuisine!

All that matters is that this looks awesome with that gooey, oozy filling!
