Southwestern Chicken Roll Ups


This is a variation on one of my all-time favorite dishes - Chicken Roll Ups.  I used some taco seasoning in the chicken filling and substituted salsa for the milk in the soup mixture.  YUM!  I could have eaten the whole pan of this stuff.  It was that good.

The filling could be made ahead of time and just assemble the casserole when you are ready.  If you want to freeze this dish, you will need to bake it and then reheat it.  The crescent rolls won't rise as well once they have been frozen.  I served the chicken roll ups with some taco rice and black beans.  This will definitely be in our usual dinner rotation!



Southwestern Chicken Roll Ups
serves 3-4
(Printable Recipe)


2 cups chicken
4 oz cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp taco seasoning
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup salsa
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 can refrigerated crescent rolls

Preheat oven to 375.

Spray a 9x13 dish with cooking spray.

Mix together salsa, cheese and chicken soup.

 For the filling, mix together the cream cheese, taco seasoning, chopped chicken and remaining cheddar cheese. Unroll the crescent rolls. Place 2 heaping tablespoons of the chicken mixture on top of each crescent roll and roll up. Place in prepared dish. Repeat with remaining crescent rolls.

Pour soup mixture over crescent rolls.  Bake for 30-40 minutes, until rolls are cooked and golden brown.

  7. Should the chicken be already cooked and cut up or do we use raw chicken and cut that up?

  8. Christine - the chicken should be cooked and chopped before adding to the rollups.
