BBQ Chicken Roll Ups are a quick and easy, make ahead appetizer for a crowd! Perfect for a Sunday night football game! They’re a great Super bowl food idea, but, these cheesy chicken, BBQ sauce and tortilla pinwheels are great for your lunch box or a regular party, too.


  • 22 ½ cups (12 oz.) shredded cooked chicken
  • ¾ cup (2 oz.) crumbled cooked bacon
  • 8 oz. cream cheese-softened to room temperature
  • 1 ¼ cup (4 oz.) shredded Cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup Classic BBQ sauce (or more if needed)
  • 1 small green onion-sliced
  • 1 small red onion-diced
  • 1 ½2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • ¼½ tsp. garlic powder (to taste)
  • Freshly ground black pepper and salt to taste
  • 4 large flour tortillas (10 inches diameter)


  1. Place all ingredients together (except tortillas) in a large bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until evenly combined. If the mixture is too dry add more BBQ sauce. It should be thick and sticky, but spreadable.
  2. Spread the mixture over tortillas, roll up tightly, slice in ½ – ¾ inch thick slices, arrange on a plate and serve.
  3. Store leftovers in the fridge.
