Tortilla Roll-ups & Our Super Bowl Food

Pin It
We had so much food for the Super Bowl (and there were just 5 of us!!) and I had so many things going on during the weekend that on Monday morning (really Sunday night when I went to bed!!) I said that I am going to eat better/healthier (at least until the next party, right???).

One of the snacks I made were Tortilla Roll-ups -

Tortilla Roll-ups

1 pkg. of 10 large flour tortillas
2 - 8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese, softened
small can diced green chilies
small can diced black olives
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp. onion powder

Picante Sauce

Blend the softened cream cheese with the green chilies, black olives, and spices.  Spread a heaping tablespoon (not measuring spoon, but serving spoon) of the mixture on the flour tortilla.  Roll them up and sealing the end with a little cream cheese, if needed.  Place in a covered container in the refrigerator to harden (I will sometimes do this overnight -- but at least several hours).

Slice into bite size pieces.  I like to serve this with Picante Sauce on the side.

This was a Super Bowl food request from my oldest grandson.  I have a nephew that requests this at the annual 4th of July party that his parents throw.

Here is the cream cheese --

All the other items just dumped in --

Mix it all up --

Put a heaping portion on each tortilla --

Use a dinner knife to spread it to the edges --

Roll it up --

Put them in a covered container to refrigerate --

When ready to cut - place on your cutting board --

I like to trim the ends off mine and discard --

Slice them and put in a container or on a serving dish --

Now, take a look at all the other foods we had.  Besides tortilla roll-ups we also had shrimp --

Little sausages wrapped in crescent rolls (youngest grandson's favorite!!) --

Veggie tray --

Meat/cheese/olive tray --

Ribs, mashed potatoes & corn --

Don't those ribs look good?  Mr. Cardigan made them --

Lucy was like -- Where's my food???  I'm ready!!!!
