Tortilla Roll-ups

Posted on

It’s seems rare that I have an occasion to make an appetizer around here, I guess we’re not usually that formal.

When I do have an excuse to make an appetizer, tortilla rollups are always one of the first things that comes to mind.  Caleb & I both love them, & now that I think about it, I’m not really sure why I don’t make them more often, just for us.  They’d be a great, less-sugary, type of snack to have around.

Last week, a couple girlfriends & I had an evening planned to hang out, & of course, EAT!  These were the perfect thing to take, & especially nice to make on a hot day because they didn’t require heating anything at all, bonus!

{Side note- my girlfriends & I have plans to start up a freezer meal cooking group.  It should be a really fun excuse to get together a little more often & create time-saving meals for the following weeks.  We hope to have our first “cooking night” soon, & I’ll be to share what we made & how it goes after we do!}

This isn’t really one of those recipes that require precise measurements.  In fact, the measurements below are just guesstimates, I’m a “dump & go” kind of cook on most days.  Adjust the ingredients to your tastes, it’s hard to go wrong with these.

Tortilla Roll-ups

6-8 oz cream cheese, softened {I just let it sit out on the counter for a while}

8 oz sour cream

4.25 oz can of green chilies

4.25 oz can of diced black olives, drained

1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar

1 t. garlic powder

6-8 whole wheat tortillas

salsa for dipping

Begin by mixing together everything but the tortillas & salsa.  Spread a thin layer onto each tortilla, leaving about a 1/2 inch bare around the edge of the tortilla.  Roll the tortilla as tightly as possible without squeezing the filling out.

After all of the tortillas have been rolled, place in the refrigerator of a minimum of 2 hours {they can be prepared even a day or two in advance}.  Remove from the refrigerator & use a sharp knife to cut each tortilla roll into 1 inch, bite size pieces.

Chill until serving.  Serve with salsa for dipping.
