Zespri® Kiwifruit and Chicken Cones


  1. Prepare all the ingredients needed for the cones and keep in covered containers.

  2. Using a pair of scissors, cut each tortilla into 4 quarters. Form into cones. Secure with a toothpick. Store them in a covered container to prevent them from drying. Note: To make tortilla more pliable, they can be briefly warmed on a hot pan for a few seconds. Do not heat them for too long, otherwise they will become crisp and dry.

  3. To serve, place a little lettuce in the cone, followed by pea shoots, chicken strips, shredded carrot or capsicum and a wedge of kiwifruit. Finally, add a squeeze of mayonnaise. Serve immediately.
