Appetizers are great to have around if you’re hosting a dinner party at home. Your guests will have something to nibble on while they socialize and wait for you to call them to the table. Besides, starving guests make for irritable guests, and great appetizers will keep that from happening.
Great appetizers don’t have to be labor-intensive at all. For instance, these cheesy chicken mini roll-ups may look fancy, but they don’t require a lot of effort at all. You’ll fool your guests into thinking you spent so much time in the kitchen making their noshes but you actually didn’t. Great, isn’t it?
These cheesy chicken mini roll-ups are pretty yet so very easy to make. You just mix the ingredients in a bowl, spread the mix on tortillas, roll them up and then refrigerate them. When you’re ready to serve them, slice the tortillas into bite-sized pieces and stick toothpicks in them for easier eating. These cutesy nibbles are from Brandie at Home Cooking Memories.
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
½ cup hot wing sauce or cayenne pepper sauce
¼ cup blue cheese, crumbled
1 cup colby-jack cheese, shredded (4 ounces)
¼ cup green onions, finely chopped
1 pound chicken breast, cooked and shredded
5 large flour tortillas (approximately 10½” diameter)
- In a bowl, beat cream cheese on low and add in sauce, blue cheese, colby-jack cheese, and green onions. Beat until blended.
- Stir shredded chicken into mixture by hand.
- Spread approximately ¾ cup of mixture on top of one of the tortillas. Roll up tortilla tightly, but without shifting the mixture too much. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Place rolled tortillas on a place and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours.
- Remove from refrigerator and unwrap. Slice each rolled tortillas in half and then each half into 3 slices, discarding ends. Place pinwheel slices on serving plate or tray.
