My sister-in-law brought all the chicken pre-cooked and chopped for the Freezer Cooking Day, which saved us lots of time and effort. We used it to make a few of the recipes–including one of our favorites, Southwest Roll-ups.
This recipe is so simple, uses inexpensive ingredients, and freezes really well.
(makes 16 roll-ups)
- 2 cans refried beans (you can make your own refried beans with this easy homemade recipe or this crockpot recipe!)
- 1/2 cup salsa
- 2-4 cups cooked chicken, chopped
- 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
- 16 tortillas (you can make your own Homemade Tortillas with this recipe)
Mix together beans, salsa, and chicken. Spread 1/16 of mixture onto one tortilla. Sprinkle with cheese. Roll up and turn ends under. Stick in a freezer bag or in a 9×13 baking pan and freeze.
When ready to bake, thaw and bake in a pre-heated 350 degrees oven for 20-30 minutes until heated through. Sprinkle with more shredded Cheddar cheese, if desired. Serve with salsa.
