Tasty Tuesday: Mexican Chicken Roll-ups

We love these Mexican Chicken Roll-ups.  I always try to keep cooked chicken in the freezer (or I can it which is even handier), so this is really fast for me to throw together for dinner..  And it’s just a yummy, creamy, cheesy, seasoned dish.  I’ll warn you though, it’s really filling so if you don’t like leftovers I would recommend only making half a recipe.

UPDATE: Be sure to read Michelle’s comment below.  I love her idea of how to make this dish even less expensive and stretch it further!

Mexican Chicken Roll-ups

2 1/2 c. cooked chicken, diced
1/2 c. sour cream
1 1/2 tsp. taco seasoning
1/2 can cream of mushroom soup*
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 small onion, optional
1/2 c. salsa
10 7″ flour tortillas

Topping:
1 c. sour cream
1/2 can cream of mushroom soup*
1 1/2 tsp. taco seasoning
1/2 c. cheese

Combine ingredients and place 1/3 cup filling in each tortilla.  Roll up and place seam side down in a 9×13 pan.  Mix topping ingredients (minus the cheese) and pour over tortillas.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese and bake an additional 10 min.

* I use my homemade cream soup for this.

    I have a recipe identical to this one and we love it. I started putting rice and black beans in it also. It’s a good way to stretch your filling so you can make even more roll-ups. When I make these I usually make a big batch and stick some in the freezer for later.

    I also wanted to tell you that I made yogurt!!! We love it! I’m not really a huge yogurt fan but like it if I can eat granola with it.

    Michelle, I LOVE your idea of adding rice and beans to this. It would really stretch it further and I can imagine it tastes great too! And thanks for clarifying that they freeze well. I had thought of trying it and now I know.

    As for the yogurt- go you! I wasn’t always a yogurt fan either but I do love homemade. And I found the more I ate it the more I liked it. Anymore I try to eat some every day. I read recently that a serving a day helps with weight loss and I can sure use that!

    Coupon Cutting Mom good for you for canning chicken. I’ve actually never done- have some that a friend did for me and it is SO handy. Did you know that you can can it in your oven? I have friends that do it and my mother-in-law did it too. Seems much easier to me and I’m going to try it when I need more chicken.
