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!

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

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.
