Barb, would this freeze? I'd love to make some individual servings for my freezer stash.

I've never frozen it but I don't see why not. It is good leftover and there is enough sauce to keep it from getting dry.

Just my two cents - if I were going to freeze this, I wouldn't put the sauce on until I was ready to cook it. You could even freeze the rolls individually, then cook in the toaster oven if you just want a portion or two. That might help keep the tortillas from getting too soggy.
