Tortilla Roll-ups

First of all, I must apologize. I've not been blogging much lately on any of my blogs. I've been de-junking & sanitizing my garage (we had a big infestation from a little creature...eeewww....), focusing on getting my garden in the ground and getting sick. In that order. Ugh. Anything else life wants to throw my way...bring it. I'm ready!!!

A couple of months ago I threw a bridal shower for a friend and made these delicious little babies for everyone to enjoy. And enjoy they did. Before I knew it, these few were all that were left. Okay, okay. So, I ate a dozen or so myself. They're just SOOOOO good! Creamy mexican flavors wrapped up in a tortilla...bite-sized! What's not to love!? My Mom has made these for YEARS and I've just recently caught the "tortilla roll-up loving bug."

I know, they look good. Don't be fooled, they're not. They're INCREDIBLE!!! Go make them for yourself. NOW. Then try to share them. I DARE you.

Tortilla Roll-ups

4-5 flour tortillas, softened
8oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
1-2 green onions, chopped
1/2 c. black olives, broken
1 can diced green chilies, drained

Combine last five ingredients well. Spread onto softened tortillas in a square shape on the center of the round tortilla. Roll up. You can either cut into bite-sized pieces now and serve, or wrap tube tightly in cling wrap and store in the refrigerator until ready to use, then cut and serve.

*NOTE: The number of tortillas used depends on how thick you spread on the ingredients.


  1. My aunt has made something very similar to these for years and I LOVE them! They even freeze well.

    We also usually dip ours in chunky salsa with adds a nice flavor. :)

  2. Have missed you so! Hope the rodents are long gone - they are the absolute worst - and that you're feeling better! Can't wait to try these roll-ups :)

  3. I have been missing your blog! I hope you are feeling better! These look so yummy...though I don't like olives, so I might have to not put those in!
