Santa Fe Crepes – The Walkers Lunch series


Santa Fe Crepe 2My daughter Jessica and I started a weekly ritual of taking long walks to get some exercise, and to spend some quality time “doing life together.”  Afterwards, I throw together a satisfying lunch that leans toward the healthy side.  The best word to describe today’s experience is beautiful! It was a beautiful sunny November morning, with my beautiful daughter, along the Mississippi river, were pockets of autumn splendor still linger. Of course, there were also the Santa Fe Crepes we had for lunch which looked (and tasted) pretty awesome to these hungry girls…


Santa Fe Crepes

Serving Size: 4 servings


  • 8-10 ounces of chicken breast
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped red pepper
  • 1/2 cup black beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed and drained
  • 1/3 cup salsa + additional for topping
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 4 crepes (see recipe provided for Savory Crepe with Eggs and Asparagus Hash post)
  • Sour Cream
  • Guacamole


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Slice or chop chicken and sauté in olive oil with salt, chili power, cumin and black pepper, until cooked through. Remove from pan and keep warm.
  • In same pan, sauté red pepper for 3-4 minutes then add black beans and corn and sauté a few more minutes. Add chicken and 1/3 cup salsa, mixing to coat, continuing to sauté until all ingredients are warm (another few minutes.)
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and lay 2 crepes on each baking sheet. Divide chicken/vegetable mixture between 4 crepes, making sure to cover only 1/2 of the crepe.
  • Divide cheese between crepes, sprinkling it over chicken/vegetable mixture. Fold crepe in half, pressing it down slightly (it should look like a folded omelet.)
  • Bake crepes for 7-8 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  • After plating crepes, top with additional salsa, sour cream and guacamole. Enjoy!

If you are using leftover frozen crepes, be sure to first thaw them overnight in the fridge and then let them stand at room temperature for 30-45 minutes before using. They will be much easier to separate and handle!
