South West Egg Rolls

This recipe is to Die for!!! it's the same one from Chili's and almost identical to the ones from The Cheese Cake Factory. They are absolutely fabulous! for a really tasty change wrap it up in a egg roll wrap found in most grocery stores near the produce section and fry it!
2 tablespoons oil
1 chicken breast
2 tablespoons green onion--minced
2 tablespoons red bell pepper--minced
1/3 cup frozen corn kernels
1/4 cup black beans--rinsed
2 tablespoons spinach--chopped
2 tablespoons diced green chiles
1/2 tablespoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/3 teaspoon salt
1 pinch ground cayenne pepper
3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
5 (6 inch) uncooked flour tortillas (the kind you get in the refrigerated section of the store)

Rub 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over chicken breast. In a pan over medium heat, cook chicken around 5 minutes per side, until meat is cooked through. Remove from heat and set aside.
Heat remaining tablespoon vegetable oil in pan over medium heat. Stir in green onion and red pepper. Cook and stir 5 minutes, until tender.
Dice chicken and mix into the pan with onion and red pepper. Mix in corn, black beans, spinach, green chiles, parsley, cumin, chili powder, salt and cayenne pepper. Cook and stir 5 minutes, until well blended and tender. Remove from heat and stir in Monterey Jack cheese so that it melts.
Wrap tortillas with a clean, moist cloth. Microwave on high about 1 minute, or until hot and pliable.
Spoon even amounts of the mixture into each tortilla. Fold ends of tortillas, then roll tightly around mixture-it looks like an eggroll.
In a large, deep skillet, heat oil for deep frying to 375 degrees. Deep fry tortillas 10 minutes each, or until dark golden brown. Drain on paper towels before serving. Or you can bake them at 350 for 15-20 minutes (but this isn't near as tasty).
