  • Sugar, 3 tablespoons
  • Salt, 2 tablespoons
  • White vinegar (distilled), 2 tablespoons
  • Ground chipotle pepper, 1 tablespoon
  • Hickory smoke flavouring, 2 teaspoons
  • Paprika, 2 teaspoons
  • Garlic powder, 2 teaspoon 
  • Onion powder, 1 teaspoon
  • Ground black pepper, 1 teaspoon

For The Mexi-Ranch Dipping Sauce

  • Mayonnaise, 1/2 cup
  • Onion (minced), 2 tablespoons
  • Tomato (diced), 2 tablespoons
  • Buttermilk, 1 tablespoon
  • White vinegar (distilled), 1 tablespoon
  • Fresh cilantro (minced ), 2 teaspoons
  • Green chile pepper (canned), 1 teaspoon
  • Paprika, 3/4 teaspoon
  • Granulated sugar, 1/2 teaspoon 
  • Salt, 1/4 teaspoon 
  • Dried dill weed, 1 pinch
  • Cumin, 1 pinch
  • Cayenne pepper, 1 pinch

Pico de Gallo

  • Medium tomatoes (diced), 2 
  • Red onion (diced), 1/3 cup
  • 1 jalapeno (seeded and diced)
  • Lime juice, 2 teaspoons
  • Fresh cilantro (minced), 2 teaspoons
  • Salt, 1/4 teaspoon
  • Ground black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon
  • Large flour tortillas, 4
  • Shredded cheddar cheese (fancy), 1 cup
  • Shredded Monterey jack cheese (fancy), 1 cup
  • Shredded iceberg lettuce, 4 cups


Step 1

For the marinade, combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl and mix for 2 hours. Once the sugar is dissolved, stir well. Place four chicken breasts in the marinade, cover, and chill for two hours. The chicken shouldn’t be marinated for longer than 2 hours or it might become tough.

Step 2

To make the dipping sauce, add all the ingredients to a medium bowl. Combine well, then chill. This will allow the flavours to develop beautifully while kept in the refrigerator.

Step 3

In order to prepare pico de gallo, combine all of the ingredients, then cover and chill it.

Step 4

Prepare the grill for medium/high heat when you’re ready to make the roll-ups. Place the chicken breast over the grill for 4 to 7 minutes per side or until cooked through.

Step 5

To assemble each roll-up, heat a large skillet over low heat and lay a large flour tortilla on top. While the tortilla is heating, sprinkle about 1/2 cup of the cheese mixture on top. 

Step 6

Remove the tortilla from the pan when the cheese begins to melt. Place about 1 cup of shredded lettuce in a strip across the centre of the tortilla, followed by approximately 3 tablespoons of pico de gallo.

Step 7

On top of the lettuce, arrange a grilled chicken breast sliced into bite-sized chunks. To roll the tortilla, fold over the ends of the tortilla and roll from the bottom up. Serve the roll-up with the dipping sauce on the side and cross the centre diagonally.
