Tasty and so cute! My mom and I made these recently and were very pleased with the results. Make sure to let the filling cool. We were a little hasty, the filling melted through the wraps on a couple of chimis. I will make these again!

Can you make ahead and freeze? If so would you cook them first?

These were so good and simple to make. We have a cookout once a week so I made them for a trial run. We served them with added sour cream and salsa. Also served mexican rice with them. Made a perfect meal. I am thinking of making mini versions for the superbowl. Could add other things if you'd like. Would be good with black olives and jalapenos if you wanted spicy. Thanks for the great recipe.
