There are just a few more days until the kids go back to school and I think we’re both ready for it.

These Chicken Enchilada Roll Ups passed the taste test and will most likely appear in their lunches next week (I froze some for later).

What I love about these is that they can totally be made ahead of time and they are great for parties because you can make a ton in about 15 minutes.
