Today”s post is one that I wrote for my friend Lori’s blog a couple of weeks ago. It is one of my family’s favorite things, so I decided to share it here.
My father-in-law loves tortilla roll ups. I usually make him a batch for Father’s Day and for his birthday, plus I make them when we have big family gatherings. We happened to have a big family gathering a few weeks ago and I thought I would share the recipe for Tortilla Roll Ups with you today. They are super easy and everyone always loves them.
First you mix the sour cream and cream cheese together until there are no lumps. I like to do this in my mixer because otherwise you are mixing all day long. I don’t have that kind of patience.
Next you add the taco seasoning and mix it well.
Then you add the rest of the ingredients, except the tortillas, and make sure everything is mixed up really, really well.
Now you take your mixture and spread some on your first tortilla, all the way to the edge. Then you roll it up. Repeat until all of mixture is used.
My husband eats gluten free, so I made two of these with gluten free tortillas and rolled and wrapped them up separately.
Put them all in a container and refrigerate until they are firm. I usually make mine the day before we need them and refrigerate them overnight.
When you are ready to eat them, slice them up and serve. Then watch them disappear! They are so good and your friends and family with absolutely love them!
Here is the recipe:
Tortilla Roll Ups
1 package of large flour tortillas (about 16)
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 package taco seasoning
1 small can chopped black olives
1 small can chopped green chilies
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
24 ounces sour cream
In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese and sour cream until it is smooth and there are no lumps. Add the taco seasoning and mix well. Add the cheese, olives and chilies and mix. Spread the mixture on the tortillas to the edges and roll up. Store in the refrigerator until firm. Cut up and serve.
