Place tortillas between 2 damp paper towels. Microwave for 1 minute, or until warm and pliable.

One at a time, spread each tortilla with 1/8th of chicken mixture, about 2 tbsp.; tightly roll up into a tube, place on the baking sheet, seam side down, and secure with toothpicks if needed.

Bake until crispy, 14 to 16 minutes. (Don’t worry if they crack and “explode” a little!) Eat up!
