Ingredients

  • 1 can (11 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Cornbread Swirls (6 count)
  • 3 cups chopped deli rotisserie chicken
  • 1 jar (16 oz) black bean and corn salsa
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese (3 oz)

Fresh Toppings

  • Lime wedges, chopped tomato, sliced green onions, chopped cilantro, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas grill to 350°F. Cut 6 (16x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray. Remove cornbread swirls from can, and separate; cut each into 6 pieces.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix chicken, salsa, chili powder and cumin; fold in cornbread pieces. Dividing evenly, spoon about 1 cup of the mixture onto center of each sheet of foil. Top each with 2 tablespoons shredded cheese.
  • 3
    Bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  • 4
    Place packs on cooking grate over indirect heat; cover grill. Cook 10 minutes. Rotate packets 1/2 turn; continue cooking 5 to 12 minutes or until dough is golden brown and cooked through.
  • 5
    To serve, carefully fold back foil. Garnish with fresh toppings.

  • We recommend a thick and chunky black bean and corn salsa variety for this recipe.
  • If you’re unable to find shredded pepper Jack cheese, shred your own from a block of cheese.
  • We recommend grilling over indirect heat to prevent the flame from getting too hot, and potentially burning the foil packs. Using a grill thermometer or temperature gauge helps keep the grill at a consistent temperature without having to constantly open the grill to check for doneness.
