Chicken, cheese and enchilada sauce is a winning combination in our second Prizewinning Plate!

Velva sent in this recipe for her Creamy Chicken Rollups and we immediately fell in love. Super simple to make, and great for dinner or reheating the next day for lunch, what’s not to love.

Dig in, y’all!

Creamy Chicken Rollups

Ingredients:
4 cups cooked, shredded chicken
1 medium onion, diced
1 Tbsp butter or margarine
12 oz. cream cheese
2 cups salsa

1 can enchilada sauce
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 green onions, sliced (optional)
1 small tomato, chopped (optional)

Stir until combined and cream cheese is melted. Remove from heat. Pour 1/3 of enchilada sauce in bottom of 9x13 baking dish. Fill each tortilla with 1/2 cup chicken mixture and roll like a cigar.

The recipe does not specify flour or corn tortillas? I will use corn as usual and I am sure they will be great!

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
