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.
