I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Chicken Roll-Ups

This can be mild or spicy, depending on how hot you like your salsa.  It's an easy meal to make and tastes wonderful.  I love that this is baked and not fried.  I like to serve this with sour cream.

(makes 6)

*2 tablespoons olive oil
*1 small yellow onion, chopped
*2 garlic cloves, minced
*2 cups salsa (I make my own)
*3 tablespoons water
*1/8 cup chili powder
*1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
*1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
*1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked & shredded
*1 cup refried beans
*1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
*6 (10 inch) flour tortillas
*2 tablespoon olive oil
*Chipotle Sauce (optional)

~Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
~Spray a baking dish with a cooking spray.
~In a large saucepan, over medium heat 2 tablespoons olive oil.
~Saute onion & garlic, until onion is translucent.
~Stir in salsa, water, chili powder, cumin & cinnamon.
~Blend mixture in a blender or with a immersion blender, until smooth.
~Return to saucepan, stir in chicken and cook until heated.
~Divide refried beans evenly down the center of each tortilla.
~Divide the  chicken/salsa mixture over the refried beans.
~Sprinkle cheese evenly over the chicken/salsa mixture.
~Fold tortillas & secure with toothpicks.
~Place seam-side down into prepared baking dish.
~Brush 2 tablespoon olive oil over tortillas.
~Bake for 15-20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes until golden brown.
~Dip in Chipotle Sauce (optional)

**If you want to freeze them, but have them taste fresh.
    `before you bake them, roll them up in aluminum foil.
    `when you are ready to eat them, put in oven frozen & still wrapped and bake for
     40 minutes.
