spicy chicken tortilla roll-ups

5:18 PM

Hi everyone! How's it going?! Today I have a very yummy appetizer for you all! They are seriously delicious! I've brought them to two parties in the last year and they were a hit at both, especially at the last, a New Year's party :)

They are called "spicy chicken tortilla roll-ups" and I found them here (I think...Can't remember, it was a long time ago and this recipe is on a bunch of different blogs..). They are very flavorful! Not too spicy either (but you can definitely kick up the spice, or leave it out completely.) These little roll-ups are also fairly easy to make. I like to cook the chicken on a frying pan because it's quick. But you can definitely do it in the slow cooker or oven. Just make sure to you a lot of spices!

Anywho, I really hope you guys give these a try! They are really really really good! Oh and one more thing, these are best eaten the day they are made. But you can make the filling and refrigerate it for a few hours or over night and then put them on the tortilla before you're ready to serve.
