Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • 10 – 12 slices of deli chicken
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons of avocado oil
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 cup beef or chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ can whole tomatoes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 8 fl oz Monterey jack cheese (shredded) or white cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 – 4 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce


  1. When the pan is hot enough, pour 2 tablespoons of avocado oil. Once the oil is hot, add the diced onions and fry them until they soften. Add the minced or crushed garlic while continuing to fry.
  2. Remove the well-sauteed garlic and onions from the pan and put them in a bowl. Set it aside to wait.
  3. You can use the same pan without washing it to add canned whole tomatoes. Don't forget to turn on the stove. Start mashing the whole tomatoes you added with a wooden spoon or spatula. Add 1 cup of beef broth. Let it boil for a while and then add chipotle chiles. Add cumin while continuing to mix. Leave it to boil.
  4. At the end of the process, you will have a granular red sauce. Take that sauce out of the pan and put it in a deep bowl, keeping it aside.
  5. Wash your pan because we will continue to use the same one. Heat the remaining avocado oil in the same pan and add the ground beef. Break the beef apart with a wooden spoon and start sautéing. While continuing to sauté, add salt and a little more cumin for taste.
  6. You can now add the onion-garlic mixture that we cooked in the first step to the meat. Put it in a deep bowl.
  7. Put the red granulated sauce you cooked in the second step into the blender or use an immersion blender to run it until it is smooth. Add some salt before blending.
  8. Add coriander to the meat you placed in a deep bowl, then add some shredded Monterey Jack cheese. Add 1 cup of the tomato sauce mixture and mix well.
  9. Now, start preheating your oven. Pour 3 tablespoons of the tomato sauce mixture into the bottom of an ovenproof bowl and spread it with a brush or spoon.
  10. Take one of the thin slices of deli chicken in the palm of your hand and put some of this meaty mixture in the middle. Roll it up and place it on the baking tray. Continue to roll and place them on the bottom of the tray until the chicken slices and meat mixture are finished.
  11. Pour the rest of the tomato sauce mixture over the rolls. Make sure the sauce touches all the rolls using a spoon or brush.
  12. Pour the remaining grated cheese on top. Put in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Transfer to serving plates, sprinkle with chopped cilantro, and serve.


    • Oil heats up faster than metal. This is why you should preheat the pan before you start cooking anything.
    • After all procces, you must also preheat the oven before placing the food in the oven. Because it creates a crust on every food surface that enters the hot environment, thus preventing the water of the food from coming out. It keeps it inside. This gives you a more delicious cooking experience
