Easy does it!
Prepare peanut sauce. Add all ingredients to a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake. Set aside.
Prepare vegetables, chicken and slice cheese. The filling is a quick saute / stir-fry. Preparing all the ingredients in advance is essential for perfect cooking and the best, crisp flavor.
Spray a saute pan with a fine mist of canola oil. Heat pan to medium / medium-high.
Add carrots, red bell pepper, jalapeno and green onion.
Working quickly, stir and add a squeeze of lime.
Squeeze more lime over cabbage and stir.
Add garlic and stir. Add more lime if desired.
Stir in chopped, cooked chicken.
Cook just until cabbage is slightly softened.
Turn off heat and drizzle with 1-2 tablespoon(s) peanut sauce.
Incorporate peanut sauce.
Stir in cilantro.
Remove from heat. Total cooking time about 5 minutes.
Let’s get rolling!
On a flat surface, place a flour tortilla. Position 5 slices of cheese in center.
Top with heaping 1/2 cup cabbage mixture.
Distribute cabbage mixture across tortilla.
Preheat grill or griddle to medium-high / high. Place rolls on grill fold side down and grill until cheese has melted and tortillas are golden.
Slice into 4 or 5 pieces and serve with peanut sauce. Makes 4 entrée servings or 8 appetizer servings.

Thanks for the recipe.
The rolls were very similar to ones that I regularly make for friends but I esp. found the Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce recipe to be invaluable. It had far more flavor than the recipe I had been using before.
Oh yeah, I love the pictures, just coming back to post this comment made my mouth water and want to make them again.
These look mouth watering, I am drooling looking at the computer screen.
Hey, I really liked that and will surely be back for more
