Chicken Enchilada Roll Ups Ingredients

Instructions:

Additional optional ingredients could include sliced jalapeno pepper, chili powder, and garlic powder. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. It helps if the cream cheese is at room temperature or warmed up slightly.

Cheesy chicken mixture

Spread the chicken mixture onto the burrito-sized flour tortillas in an even layer. This is easily done with a spatula. What makes this such a great make-ahead appetizer is that a bunch of these can be whipped up in a snap!

Tortilla Rolled Up Appetizer

Roll the tortillas tightly so they hold their shape. Now, chill the rolled-up tortillas in the fridge for 30 minutes. Chilling the rollups makes the cream cheese mixture return to a more solid form, allowing them to be sturdier and easy to eat once cut up into bitesize pieces. This can be done by placing the wraps in a baking dish, pan, or cutting board covered with plastic wrap.
