How To Store the Leftovers

This Taco Bell Cheesy Roll Up recipe makes six servings, but there is no need to eat them all at once. You can keep any extras in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. 

For longer than that, try freezing:

  1. Lay the roll ups on a baking sheet. 
  2. Place the baking tray in the freezer until the roll ups are frozen, about 45 minutes.
  3. Wrap each roll up individually in tin foil and store together in a bag or covered container in the freezer for up to three months. 

What’s the Best Way to Reheat a Cheesy Roll Up

For a crispy roll up, use an air fryer:

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 325°F. 
  2. Place the roll ups in the air fryer and reheat for 3 to 4 minutes if thawed and 6 to 8 minutes if frozen. Turn the roll ups halfway through the cooking time. 

For a softer roll up, use the microwave:

  1. Wrap a roll up in a paper towel and place it on a microwaveable plate.
  2. Microwave it on HIGH for 30 seconds if thawed or 1 minute and 30-seconds if frozen. Let the roll up sit for about 30 seconds before opening the door of the microwave. 
  3. Continue heating in 10-second bursts if the food is not hot enough.
