Make sure the chicken is cooked properly. It should no longer be pink.
Now heat another tablespoon of oil in the saucepan on medium heat. Use a medium saucepan. Stir the red pepper and green onion and cook it for about 4 minutes till the vegetables are tender. You want the red pepper and green onion to be cooked but not burnt.
Now dice the cooked chicken and mix it in the pan with the red pepper and onion. Mix in the corn kernels, chopped spinach, black beans, parsley, chili powder, cumin, jalapeno, cayenne pepper and salt. Cook it for about 5 minutes until the spices are blended well and just enough tender. Remove it from heat and stir in the cheese so that it gets melted.
Now wrap the tortillas with a moist cloth and keep it in the microwave. Microwave for about 1 minute till it is hot and ready to eat. You need it to be warm and soft.
Now spoon the chicken mix in each of the warm tortillas. Fold the end of each tortilla and roll it tightly around the chicken mix. Now secure it with the toothpick. Arrange it in a baking dish and cover it with plastic. Place it in the freezer. You need to freeze it for 5 hours or so.
