I love the beginning of the new year. It is full of hope, and newness and it feels so good. Like you can wash everything clean and start again. I have spent a lot of time dreaming, planning, resting, and figuring out what I want 2019 and beyond to bring.
Along with this newness comes the need to rid

How to Make Green Chile & Tomatillo Chicken Roll-Ups
This starts with chicken. You can use any you like (breast, tenderloins, thighs, whole) and prepare any way you would like:
- in a crockpot - what I did for this recipe
- Baked in the oven
- Cooked in a skillet
- Or a rotisserie chicken - aka no work for you!
Mix this together with stauted peppers, onions and green chiles, a little non-fat plain greek yogurt, tomatillo salsa, and a couple of spices. Wrap it up with some cheese and wha-laa, you are done.
What Kind of Tortillas Can I Use for Chicken Roll-Ups?
I like to use a low carb, high fiber, whole wheat tortilla (affiliate link) but any kind will do. Any kind of cheese is great as well and you can add as much or as little as you want. This is basically a "throw anything and everything into a bowl until it tastes just right" kinda recipe. You can't really go wrong
Bake for 20-25 minutes and serve with lime wedges, cilantro, and guac for a quick and healthy weeknight meal.
Can I Freeze This and Make Ahead of Time?
100%! I love me a good freezer make ahead meal!
Go ahead and make this all the way just up until baking. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap 3 times to seal air tight. Store in the freezer for 3-4 months.
To bake, unwrap plastic wrap and cover with foil. Bake for 45-50 minutes until hot and bubbly in the middle.
