Chicken Enchilada Dip Roll Ups

posted in: Appetizers & Snacks, Chicken, Tex-Mex        date:

I found this recipe on Amy’s blog, Sing for Your Supper. I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am that I tried this recipe. This stuff is seriously amazing. I will definitely be making this again and again. Did I mention that it’s also super easy? That’s my kind of recipe. Tasty and simple!

This recipe can definitely be adapted to your tastes. We used jalapeno cheddar tortillas, but you could use plain flour tortillas. We also used a chipotle lime flavored rotisserie chicken, but you can use any flavor you like. You could also use boneless, skinless breasts like the original recipe calls for.

Try this! You won’t be disappointed.

2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1 1/3 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese

1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
4 green onions, chopped
10-oz. can Rotel tomatoes
1 package jalapeno cheddar tortillas

-Mix cheeses together until well blended.
-Add all remaining ingredients and mix well.
-Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.

    Hi! How many cups of chicken do you need for this recipe (or an estimate)? I already have some frozen chicken in the freezer so just need a ballpark.

  • clstar

    I'd say around 2 cups, but a little more or less should be fine. I hope that helps!

    Thanks for your response! and would they be OK to prepare the night before? Or maybe I can prepare the filling the night before, but add them to the tortillas the day of? Did I answer my own question? haha

  • clstar

    You can make the filling the night before. The tortillas would get soggy if though if you rolled it all up ahead of time. So yes, just do what you were thinking and roll them up the day of. Good luck!
