In case past posts haven’t been completely obvious…my name is Kelli and I like spicy food. I wouldn’t call that a problem though…more of an appreciation. So when I saw this Buffalo Chicken Tortilla Rollups recipe on Pinterest, I definitely was interested.
As someone who always has at least 2-3 kinds of hot sauce on hand at all times, I love that buffalo chicken flavor. Growing up and even through college, spicy food was not my thing. I just didn’t like it. My mom and dad loved all things spicy, so it was only a matter of time before I succumbed. I think as I’ve gotten older, my taste buds have become less sensitive, so now I want…nay, I need, spicy food.
These rollups make the perfect appetizer or snack. They are super easy to whip up and you can make them ahead, which is kinda perfect when you need to bring something to a party or need to make multiple appetizers.
The chicken was what took the longest for me, because I had to cook and shred my chicken. Although if you have pre-shredded chicken that will cut your prep time. I used a method where I cooked one side of the chicken in a pan, flipped it over, added a little water and covered to steam them until they were fully cooked. They smelled fantastic, were easy to shred, and the leftover liquid was also used in a dish that we were having for dinner.
Once the chicken was cooked, throwing the filling together was easy. Just combine cream cheese, blue cheese, hot sauce, Colby Jack cheese, and green onions in a mixer. Once that sauce is fully combined, add the chicken and fold it in. You can let the buffalo chicken filling chill in the refrigerator for a couple of hours if you don’t want to make the rollups right away. Otherwise you can start to roll up the tortillas. Be sure to refrigerate the tortilla rolls for a few hours before slicing them so they firm up a bit. Then enjoy!
I gotta say these rollups were awesome and slightly addictive. They were spicy but not crazy spicy, and if you’re not a big fan of hot sauce, you can always put less in. It calls for half a cup, which is a lot, but for that classic buffalo chicken flavor it’s needed. They were perfect for muching on while watching lots of football.
