  • 1
    In 5-quart Dutch oven, cook lasagna noodles as directed on package. Drain; rinse with hot water. Drain well.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cream cheese, shredded Monterey Jack cheese and green onions with electric mixer on medium speed 1 to 2 minutes or until blended. Add 1 can enchilada sauce and green chiles on low speed. Stir in chicken.
  • 3
    Spread heaping 1/3 cup chicken mixture along center of each cooked lasagna noodle, to within 1 inch of one short end. Roll up firmly toward unfilled end. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil. Place roll-ups seam side down in pan; cover loosely with foil. Freeze about 30 minutes or until firm.
  • 4
    Place frozen rolls in two labeled 1-gallon freezer bags; label. Freeze up to 3 months.
  • 5
    To bake 16 lasagna roll-ups, spray two 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dishes with cooking spray. Remove roll-ups from freezer bag; place 8 in each baking dish. Cover with foil; thaw in refrigerator at least 8 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 6
    Heat oven to 350°F. Divide 1 of the remaining cans of enchilada sauce between baking dishes, pouring over and down sides of roll-ups. Cover tightly with foil; bake 40 to 50 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
  • 7
    Meanwhile, in 1 1/2-quart saucepan, heat remaining can of enchilada sauce over medium-low heat until hot. Remove foil; sprinkle each dish with 1 cup sharp Cheddar cheese. Bake 3 to 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Spoon remaining sauce over rolls. Top with tomato, sour cream, cilantro and olives.

Expert Tips

Can’t take the heat? Swap in regular Monterey Jack for the version with peppers.

This dish is a great way to use up leftover rotisserie chicken or cooked turkey as well.
