Chicken Taco Roll-Ups!

These flavorful bites are more than just another appetizer; they are a fusion of all things we love about tacos—just conveniently rolled up and ready to party.

Why You Will Love Chicken Taco Roll-Ups

What’s not to love? It’s a winning combination of succulent chicken, aromatic herbs, a medley of vegetables, and that irresistible layer of cream cheese, all wrapped up in a cozy tortilla blanket.

They’re easy to make, convenient to serve, and best of all, you can enjoy them hot or cold. These roll-ups are the life of the party, just waiting to be devoured!


  1. Prep Ahead: You can prepare the filling a day in advance, making the assembly process quick and easy.
  2. Keep it Tight: When rolling, make sure to do so as tightly as possible to keep all that yummy filling intact.
  3. Chill Before Slicing: After rolling them up, let them chill in the refrigerator for a little bit. This makes slicing a breeze.

The Ingredients

Flour Tortillas

The foundation of our roll-ups. Opt for medium-sized tortillas for a good balance of filling and wrap.

Cream Cheese

The creamy layer that binds all our other ingredients, making every bite a mouthful of heaven.

Taco Seasoning

The spice enabler! This gives our roll-ups that unmistakable taco kick.

Rotisserie Chicken

Cooked to perfection, this protein is what makes our roll-ups so substantial and satisfying.

Cheddar Cheese

This cheese melts beautifully, bringing a rich, tangy flavor that complements the other ingredients.

How to Make Chicken Taco Roll-Ups

  3. Spread it out: Lather a generous layer of your cream cheese mixture on a tortilla.
  4. Cheese it up: Sprinkle on a good amount of shredded cheddar cheese.
