This recipe was adapted from one I found online that called for tortillas, but I decided to try it with hand made crepes and we all liked it. So I thought I'd share it here.

Ingredients

CREPES

1 c
pancake mix
1 c
milk
1 1/2 c
water
1 large
egg

FILLING

1 pkg
cream cheese, room temperature
1 c
salsa, chunky (hot or mild, your choice)
1 can(s)
pinto beans
1 c
leftover chicken, shredded

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all crepes ingredients together with a wire whisk or electric beater till smooth.
Heat a nonstick frying pan on medium low heat. Pour about 1/3 cup batter and spread it around to make a thin pancake (i.e. crepe).
2
When the top is dry and the edge starts to come away from the pan (about 2 - 3 minutes), you turn it over. Cook the other side for about 2 minutes, remove it to a plate.
Do the same again till all the batter is gone, makes about 10 crepes.
3
In a bowl mix all filling ingredients till very well blended.
Lay a crepe on a plate, place 2 - 3 tbs. filling in the middle and roll the crepe up.
4
Line the crepes in a rectangular oven pan seam side down. Spread the shredded cheese all over the top. Cover with a sheet of aluminium foil sprayed with cooking spray.
5
Bake at 350 degrees till heated through and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes.
