Tortilla Rolls

This delicious appetizer makes its way to many family gatherings. The filling flavor can easily be altered depending on your taste. Add more or less onion. Throw in some chopped cilantro. If you like spice, how about some chopped jalapeno?

You'll be amazed at how quickly these will fly off the plate.

We're taking this to a holiday gathering, so to make it more festive (and who doesn't like festive?), I used white flour tortillas, green spinach tortillas, and red sun-dried tomato tortillas.

Tortilla Rolls

based on a recipe from "A Pinch of Salt Lake"...excellent cookbook by the way
32 oz softened cream cheese
1 (4 oz) can chopped green chilies
1 (4 oz) can chopped olives
1 bunch green onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
12-15 flour tortillas
Your favorite fresh salsa

Mix together cream cheese, chilies, olives, onions, and garlic. Spread one side of each tortilla with cream cheese mixture. Roll up jelly-roll style. Pack tightly in a freezer bag and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
To serve, cut each roll into 1/2 inch rounds and place cut-side up on a serving tray. Serve with salsa.

Heather made these for a Thanksgiving appetizer in St. George, and I truly could not stop popping them in my mouth. Addictive and SO good! Thanks for sharing the recipe with us!

I swear my life has been so much easier since I found your blog. Every time I'm asked to bring something to an event, I turn to this site. I'm truly compiling a cookbook. These will be coming with me to my Saturday family gathering...thank you.

Do you find the spinach tortillas at regular stores? Or is that more a Whole Foods trip..

Morgan: Thanks for the comment. That little boy of yours is SO CUTE! Hope you're doing well.

Erin: You know how I love the festive-ness.

Lisa Marie: You are so kind. You should be able to find the spinach tortillas at any supermarket. They may be in the "wrap" section by the breads. My husband found them for me at Albertsons.
