Tortilla Rollups

For almost any get together our family has that requires snacks, these Tortilla Rollups always make an appearance.

This is a recipe that you can mess with. I usually add some finely shredded cheese to the mix when I make these at our house. You can substitute green olives for the black olives or use some of both. You could use flavored tortillas instead of plain. And you could even use a flavored cream cheese if you wanted. It's fun to play around with recipes and make something new out of a tried and true recipe.

We usually have a bowl of "Heather's Salsa" ready to dip these in, but store bought salsa will work just as well. You can set these next to a giant bowl of tortilla chips and the two snacks can share the salsa!

TORTILLA ROLLUPS                                                                                     Printable Version

8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 can diced green chilies
1 large can black olives, finely diced
Green onions, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 package flour tortillas

In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, green chilies, black olives, green onions, garlic salt, and black pepper. Stir until everything is well combined. Place a flour tortilla on a piece of plastic wrap you've laid out on the counter. Spread a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture over the tortilla, leaving about 1/4" clean around the edge of the tortilla. Roll up tightly and wrap securely in the plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour. When ready to serve, cut the wraps into 1" slices, place on a platter, and serve with salsa for dipping.
