  • Combine the cream cheese, greek yogurt, hot sauce, cheddar cheese and garlic powder in a medium sized mixnig bowl. Using an electric mixer, mix until creamy (some small chunks are ok).
  • Stir in the chicken and green onions until combined.
  • Spread approx 1/4 cup of the mixture on a flour tortilla.
  • Roll the tortilla up and slice into 1 inch sections. The ends may need to be removed (Set them aside to eat as a snack yourself!).

For Meal Prep: Cook the chicken ahead of time or make the filling up to 3-4 days prior to wrapping to save time!
