Salsa Roll-Ups

Okay, so I am a little late on this, but the Super Bowl was over the weekend. So, I am not much a football watcher myself, but since I was given the chance to make a bunch of food, I was all for it. I do watch football now and again. And I do understand the basic concepts and rules of football, but I don't usually let on that I do, though. I'm not sure why. 

Anyway, I was at this party several days before with my cousin, who also happens to be one of my best friends, and her boyfriend. And at this party, I had some roll-ups that had cream cheese and salsa in them. When I asked what they were made of, I told myself I was going to recreate them as soon as I got home. And I did. It all worked out perfectly since the Super Bowl was the very same weekend. 

Of course, I recreated them with my very own version. I did some research and decided to make my own version of them. And the recipe came out to be something like this.

Cream Cheese Salsa Roll-Ups


1- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup salsa
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded cheese plus a little extra
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1  4-6 oz can olives (sliced, which 
I always buy the whole ones and cut them myself)
3 green onions, sliced thinly
5-6 tortillas (I used 10 inch, but 
smaller ones can be used)

  1. In a large bowl, using mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth. Next, add salsa and sour cream, and mix together.  
  2. Add the chili powder, cheese, olives, green onions and mix together. Now, add the olives (after adding olives, I mixed using a spoon or spatula instead of the electric mixer.) 
  3.  Now, spoon about a 1/2 of a cup of the mixture (or smaller amount if using a smaller sized tortilla like a 6 inch) onto a tortilla. Sprinkle a little extra cheese (because you can never have enough cheese, this is optional), and then roll up tightly.
  4.  Wrap each tortilla roll-up in plastic wrap individually and refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours. 
  5. Cut into 3/4 inch pinwheels and serve immediately. Can be served with extra salsa if desired. 

I love these because they are easy to make and they are delicious. My whole family loved them. They make great appetizers and snacks for any occasion. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family did.
