These are not your average chicken salad wraps. They are filled with whipped cream cheese, shredded lettuce, and provolone cheese. They really are the ultimate chicken salad rollups!
So this weekend was a little busy for us, and we needed a quick little snack like these rollups. With only 5 weeks left until my due date for baby #4, I knew I NEEDED to potty train my 2 1/2 year old. We’ve done two in diapers before (our oldest two are 17 months apart) and we just would like to avoid that again. She did so well! I think she’ll be pretty well trained in a few weeks. So I spent a lot of time in the bathroom with her, and I didn’t have a lot of time to make any elaborate meals.
Luckily these are great little rollups to make ahead and keep in the fridge for when you are famished. I also love to make them for vacation each year. But one of my favorite uses for them is as an alternative to chicken salad sandwiches at a shower. They really are a hit and get eaten up very quickly. I first learned to make them from my friend’s mom. She made them for my friend’s baby shower, and they’ve become a recipe I’ll never forget.
First start off by spreading a large tortilla with whipped cream cheese.
Along one edge. layer the provolone cheese.
