Adapted by BumbleBeeBoogie

6 10-inch flour tortillas
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon jalapeno chilies, seeds removed, minced
2 tablespoons orange marmalade
2 tablespoons green onion, thinly sliced
1/8 teaspoon salt
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons fresh flat Italian parsley, snipped
4 baked or grilled chicken breasts, cut in thin strips
2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves, rolled together and cut in very thin strips
1 ripe avocado, peeled, seeded, sliced and sprinkled with lemon juice to prevent darkening
Grapefruit salsa (see below)

In a bowl, mix the softened cream cheese with the jalapeno chilies, orange marmalade, green onions, salt and pepper, and parsley. Spread the mixture down the middle of the flour tortillas, leaving at least 1/2-inch around edge. Top the mixture with several thin chicken strips. Top the chicken with the avocado and chopped spinach. Top with dollop of salsa.

Roll the tortillas and lay on a dish covered with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 4 hours.

When ready to serve, cut the filled tortillas into 1-inch slices. Arrange them on plate and garnish with citrus fruit salsa.
