Tortilla Roll Ups

Ah, such a simple food to prepare and serve yet it always gets compliments. The tortilla roll up!

There is really no real 'recipe' for these and even though you hate to hear that, it's the truth. Wraps and roll ups are so versatile that almost anything you put in them (within reason of course!) is going to taste good. I swear!

Think about what you think would taste good on a sandwich or a cracker for an appetizer and build from there based on your favorite foods, or the tastes preferred by your family. Add a zippy dip or sauce to serve with it and you are set... with almost no work.

Tortilla Roll Ups

The basics;

Flour Tortillas
Flavored Wraps such as Spinach, Tomato, Zesty Garlic, Jalapeno

Start with:

Cream Cheese spread as the base up to one edge to hold everything in place and 'seal' your tortilla roll

Add a very thin single layer of;

  • ham slice, lettuce, ranch dressing or sprinkled ranch dressing, bacon bits, avocado and onion
  • turkey slice, smoked provolone, italian dressing drizzled, lettuce
  • Extra cream cheese, diced black olives, green olives, garlic powder, chilies - and serve with salsa for dipping
  • Garden Veggie flavored cream cheese with a sprinkle of bean sprouts, cucumber slices, radishes, peppers and onions
  • Deli chicken slice, avocado, provolone, honey mustard sauce drizzled with more to serve as a dipping sauce
  • Chicken, tabasco sauce, cheddar, chilies and garlic powder served with salsa

Use your own imagination and build your wraps. Roll up tightly, using the layer of cream cheese to 'seal' the roll up. Roll it up tightly in plastic or Saran wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to 24. Remove plastic and slice into 3/4" slices. Lay down on a serving platter surrounding a dipping sauce. Delicious!Print Friendly and PDF
