4 Comments

buffalo chicken roll upsIngredients:
8 oz. Buffalo Wing Sauce (I use Frank’s Red Hot)
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 dry ranch packet
8 oz. 1/3 less fat original cream cheese
1 c reduced fat (2%) shredded cheese
6-8 large tortillas

Directions:
buffalo chicken roll ups 31. Add chicken, buffalo wing sauce, and ranch packet to slow cooker. Cook on HIGH for 4 hours (cook time will vary with different slow cooker models).
2. Remove chicken from slow cooker onto plate. Shred using two forks. Set chicken aside.
3. Whisk cream cheese into buffalo sauce that is in the slow cooker. Once it is completely melted and mixed well, add chicken back into sauce.
4. Turn off slow cooker. Put buffalo chicken mixture into a dish to chill in the refrigerator for about 30-45 minutes.
5. Once chicken mixture is chilled (I zapped mine in my food buffalo chicken roll ups 2processer a few times to make it easier to spread before adding the cheese), stir in shredded cheese to buffalo chicken mixture.
6. Lay tortillas out flat on counter. Spoon buffalo chicken mixture onto tortilla and spread into an even layer.
7. Beginning at one end, roll up tortilla. Slice into bite-sized pieces. Repeat process until all of the buffalo chicken mixture is gone (I used 7 tortillas).
8. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Yields about 42 roll ups (will vary depending on how much chicken mixture you put in each tortilla and how big you cut your roll ups)

Breakfast scrambleIngredients:
8 Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage patties, diced
1.5 lb yellow potatoes, diced
1 c peppers and onion (I used about 1/2 c onion and 1/4 c each of red and green peppers)
1 c 2% reduced fat Colby & Monterey Jack cheese
32 oz Egg Beaters or other egg substitute (equivalent to about 12 large eggs)
salt, to taste (I added about 1/2 tsp)
pepper, to taste (I added about 1/2 tsp)

optional to serve as breakfast burritos-
tortillas
salsa
guacamole
hot sauce

Directions:
1. I recommend spraying your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray first.
2. Layer sausage, potatoes, peppers and onion, and cheese on top.
3. (I poured my egg substitute into a bowl and whisked the salt and pepper into the eggs) Pour egg over all ingredients.
4. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or HIGH for 4-6 hours, or until egg has set and is no longer runny.

Serving suggestions:
This dish is amazing all on its own, but we love to load it into a tortilla and have as breakfast burrito filling topped with salsa or guacamole.

Yields 15 servings, serving size 1/2 c
