Get ready for the easiest enchiladas on the planet!
A few weeks ago, we had our good friends over for snacks. I had no idea what I was going to serve, but I knew I didn’t want it to be too fussy or involved. So I decided to flip through one of my old cookbooks and found this recipe.
Cream cheese, chicken, cilantro, rotel tomatoes….how can you go wrong with that cast of characters?! Sure enough, this was some seriously good dip – in fact, these little roll-ups didn’t even make it out of the kitchen!
So, needless to say, I didn’t wait long before making it again – this time for my mom, who was visiting for a couple of days (the ultimate test, mind you). Thankfully, she loved it too! In fact, she didn’t wait long before making it herself!
Chicken Enchilada Tortilla Roll Ups
Chicken Enchilada Tortilla Roll Ups are a simple and fun bite sized spin on ever popular chicken enchiladas! A great appetizer recipe, easy to make ahead, easy to serve, perfect for game day party !
- 2 8 oz package cream cheese softened
- 1 1/3 cup cheese (cheddar, Mexican blend, pepper jack, etc.) shredded
- 1 tsp garlic minced
- 2 tbsp taco seasoning
- 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cooked and shredded
- 1 bunch cilantro chopped
- 4 green onions sliced
- 1 10 oz can diced tomatoes with green chiles
- salt to taste
- 4-6 8 inch large flour tortillas
In large bowl, combine all ingredients except tortillas until well mixed. Lay a tortilla out on a plate and spread an even layer of the chicken enchilada cheese mixture all the way to the edges (about 2 to 3 tbsp).
Roll up tortilla tightly and place on a plate and then repeat until all the ingredients have been used. Pop into the fridge to chill for 2 hour.
Slice each rolled tortillas off the ends and set aside. Garnish with sliced green onions and or cilantro.
* - Make sure your tortillas are at room temperature before you roll them so they are nice and flexible.
* - Smaller tortillas may be used, however you will need to adjust the amount of chicken and cheese mixture you add to each tortilla.
* - If time is an issue, you can skip the refrigeration before slicing or refrigerate for less time. However, for best results, refrigeration is recommended.
* - You can use a rotisserie chicken, or cook and shred your own. My grocery store sells pre-cooked, seasoned, shredded chicken that makes these even easier!
