Fabulous Tortilla Roll-up's

One of my favorite recipe's, I use the filling in all sorts of ways... Give this recipe a try, you will soon find yourself using it for everything like I do!

My Basic Tortilla Roll-up
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 (8 oz.) container sour cream
3-4 green onions, sliced thin, using both the green and white portion
1 (7 oz.) can diced green chili's, drained
1 small can chopped olives
1/2 tsp. seasoning salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
3/4 c. diced ham
8 flour tortilla's


In a medium mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, sour cream, sliced onions, green chili's, olives, salt and pepper. Using a hand mixer, blend on slow speed until well combined.  Fold in ham.  Lay out the 8 tortillas and divide filling equally among them.  Spread filling on 3/4 of the tortilla, then starting on the side with filling, roll up tightly, ending on then non spread side (you will notice that as your roll the filling spreads toward the dry side, and this is what you want). Place seam side down on a small baking sheet, cover loosely with plastic wrap and chill for several hours or overnight.  Slice and serve!


Notes:  I use this filling in stuffed cherry tomatoes, veggie wraps (minus the ham of course), as a filling for tea sandwiches, in mini cream puffs, as a celery stuffing, and as a quesadilla filling along with grated sharp cheddar cheese. Add a few dashes of Frank's hot sauce for some great zing. DIVINE!  Try adding cooked and shredded chicken along with lettuce and roll up. The possibilities are endless...
Additional Note: If using this filling for a hot dish, decrease the sour cream to 4 oz. or 1/2 c. measurement.
