These creamy Mexican chicken roll ups are so fast and easy.  They would be perfect for any get together.  You can even use them as an after school snack or when family gets home from work. Mexican Chicken Roll Ups are a perfect appetizer while you are watching a ballgame on television. There are a lot of sports fans in my family and they are always looking for a good, fun, new snack to eat while watching a ballgame (football, basketball, baseball, soccer, or anything else that they can find) on television. I made some of these up so they could be eaten during a football game this week. I’m pretty sure that I will be making them again. They disappeared pretty fast. They work up very fast, and you can used canned chicken or a rotisserie chicken if you don’t have time to cook chicken.  If you want to make them a little more filling, add some spinach or lettuce.  Try some avocado and you have a perfect little sandwich.

Some are on wheat shells and some are on regular shells. Wheat make them a little healthier, don’t you think. Most kids don’t even know that it is on wheat!
