Chicken Enchilada Dip Rollups



This weekend we went up to visit my family to celebrate a couple of birthdays. We had some really great food for lunch made by my mom and sister, along with these Chicken Enchilada Dip Rollups I brought that I've wanted to try for a while now. They were fantastic! I used a tomato basil wrap we had, but any kind will do. You can adjust the amount of heat you like in these. I made these mild since I knew the kids probably wouldn't eat anything too spicy. These would be perfect game day food - maybe with a jalapeno inside, too!

Lucky for me, Joelen is hosting a foodie film event this month for Mexican inspired recipes, in honor of Cinco de Mayo. These enchilada rolls would be the perfect addition to any Cindo de Mayo party.

Ingredients:
2 8-oz. packages cream cheese, softened
1 1/3 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
1 teaspoon garlic, finely minced (I used the zester for this. A garlic press would work nicely, as well.)
1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
cayenne pepper to taste
salt to taste
1 small, southwest flavored rotisserie chicken, skinned and shredded
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
4 green onions, chopped
10-oz. can Rotel tomatoes
1 package jalapeno cheddar tortillas

Directions:
-Mix cheeses together until well blended.
-Add all remaining ingredients and mix well.
-Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.
-Place one heaping spoonful onto tortilla.
-Spread to edges using a metal spatula.
-Roll and cut into slices.

Next time I have people over I should make this. I'm sure they would enjoy.

These look so delicious! I'll have to keep these in mind, especially for football season!

Kerstin said...

They look very addicting! I love that you used jalapeno cheddar tortillas - I'm to have to look for those!

Just wanted to let you know I made these and loved them!

Cat said...

They don't have Rotel here - can I just use a can of regular tomatoes and add a small can of chili's? We don't have Southwest Rotisserie chicken - would regular chicken lack something?

Melissa said...

Cat- yes, I think both of those would work just as well. :)

Jaymie said...

I definitely want to make these ... Thank u :)

I just finished making these and they taste delicious! Just fyi, I used pre-cooked chicken (3 pkgs) and it was enough to make 7 large tortillas.

How many does this recipe make? I need to make enough for 50 people! Thanks!

Melissa said...

I'm sorry, I really can't remember how many it made other than it filled up a large serving tray. Depending on the other food you'll be serving, this may be enough, or you might want to double the amount (I always make too much)? Sorry I can't help more!

Thanks! One large serving tray should be plenty! Can't wait to try them, they look delicious!

These look great! Do you drain the tomatoes?

Anonymous said...

Where can you buy the tortillas?

Melissa said...

-Yes, you will want to drain the tomatoes.

-I found that particular flavor tortillas in Meijer, but any flavor would work just as well.

Just made these for the teacher/staff luncheon at my daughter's school. I used spinach tortillas since it's St. Patrick's Day themed. Thanks for the great recipe!

These are AMAZING!!! I made them for the Super Bowl this year and they were a HIT! I am making them for the second time today per request for a bridal shower. :) I just want to give a couple of hints: I couldn't find a southwest rotisserie chicken (the first time I just used a traditional flavored one, and still delish!) But this time I found Tyson brand, grilled & ready Southwestern style chicken Breast Strips... the package is 22oz.(1.37lb)... and this seems to be the perfect amount and tastes fantastic! It is a little more expensive than the rotisserie chicken, but saves on prep (I put in a food processor and just pulsed it a few times for a chunky diced up chicken)
I love this recipe and will be making it again and again!!! :)
thanks for sharing!

Made these today for a pool party. So good!!! I cheated and used canned white meat chicken, which I have never used before but have had it in recipes other people made like this, and it was great! I didn't have the tomatoes but used diced canned tomatoes instead and added a can of green chillies to flavor it up. Really good. They disappeared fast!

Stephanie said...

Can these be made ahead of time or will tortillas get soggy? Tip for shredding chicken: use mixer on low with hot, boneless chicken. I shredded 3 chicken breasts perfectly in under a minute!!!
