Grill chicken breasts and chop finely or shred. Mix onion, chicken and red pepper together in a large bowl.
On a flat surface, such as a cutting board. spread 2 tbsps light cream cheese over each tortilla, as you would jam. Then spread a layer of the chicken mixture on each tortilla. Repeat until mixture has been used.
Roll tortilla in half, as shown.
Then gently pull back to the edge and start rolling from there
Continue rolling tightly.
Continue rolling until you get to the edge
When you get to the edge, add a little more cream cheese, so it will stick together.
Roll right up (tightly) place seam side down.
Wrap rolled tortillas tightly in plastic wrap and place tortillas in fridge for one hour mininum. *I have found they stay together better if you roll them the night before.
Cut off the ends (with no filling)
Slice into ¾ inch slices and serve! * You can use a measuring tape to ensure you have equal sized pieces.
