The spicy cheese and Mexican seasoning give plenty of zip to these tender chicken rolls. Round out the meal with rice pilaf and pineapple tidbits. Or microwave frozen broccoli and serve peppermint stick ice cream for dessert.

"SO YUMMY, and really easy. I doubled the recipe, and hubby said he could eat 6 more breasts! Not often is he so enthusiastic about dinner. I think I'll tie the chicken next time--the toothpicks were tough to remove."
