Mexican rollup recipe

These flavoursome and satisfying Mexican rollups can be made ahead of time and frozen individually to pull out as needed for lunches or dinner.

  • 1c cooked chicken
  • 1c salsa
  • 435g tin refried beans
  • 1/2c cheese, grated
  • 6-8 tortillas
1. Mix together chicken, salsa and refried beans.

2. Spread 1/6 of mixture onto one tortilla. Sprinkle with 1/6 of the cheese.

3. Roll up and turn ends under. 

4. Place in a ziplock bag, squeeze out all the air (to prevent freezer burn) and freeze. Repeat steps until you've made 6 rollups.

5. When ready to eat, bake from frozen at 180°C for 30 minutes until heated through. Serve with avocado or sour cream and salsa. 

Variation: For a vegetarian alternative, swap the chicken for a 420g tin of Mexican chilli beans or red kidney beans. (Drain and rinse the red kidney beans first.)


  1. This looks amazing Emma. Next time I've got some chicken and it's my turn to cook, I'm going to make this. Tried to convince Sandy to make it tonight for me, but he wasn't so keen. Heather

  2. They are so yummy! I get really excited anytime I get to eat one for lunch.

  3. I can't wait to try these! especially to make them for lunch. have to wait a while as with the two week meal planning thing means it takes a while till we get to choose what we are having again!
