Tortilla Roll-ups

The tortilla roll-ups are a long-time hit with many of my friends. They started when we had a girls’ weekend in Rochester, and Dove wanted to find something that would be easy to eat while sitting beside the pool. Since it was going to be hot, she wanted to find something cool. So after a big of searching, she found taco roll-ups on Allrecipes.com. Falcon Ridge that summer Nichole made a TON of them, and we ate them for lunch pretty much every day. I’ve made them for parties since then, and now Steven loves them, too.

What follows is a version of the original taco roll-ups that I made for lunch last week. I added spinach to them to give them a bit more nutrition.

Taco Roll-ups

1 package large tortillas (I used spinach tortillas)
1 package frozen spinach in cream sauce (or you could use the stuff without cream sauce)
Chunky salsa
1/2 package cream cheese (or neufatchell), softened
1 packet ranch salad dressing mix
Shredded mexican cheese mix

As per usual, I have no idea how much I used of most of the ingredients. So just guess based on the pictures below.

Heat the spinach until it is no longer frozen, and then drain off some of the cream sauce. If you’re using spinach without cream sauce, then squeeze out the excess water.

Mix the cream cheese, spinach, ranch (I used slightly less than one whole package), and salsa (Maybe 3/4 cup?) together in a bowl. I also added a bit of garlic and paprika to this, but it’s not necessary.

Spread on each tortilla and top with a handful of cheese. Roll the tortillas up and place in the fridge overnight.

The next day, cut each roll into 1 inch slices (bigger or smaller is fine).

    Ha! I have no idea! It’s totally something you’d love.

    It’s a good recipe to play around with, too.

    Ummm…there is a serious flaw in your recipe. You never say when/what to do with the cream cheese!!!

    Shoot!

    Fixed now. Cream cheese goes in with the ranch and salsa, etc.

    Thanks!

    That’s what I was assuming, but glad we got that figured out. 🙂
