Cream Cheese Roll Ups Recipe

The easiest and most popular appetizer you could ever make. Rich cream cheese, ranch dressing mix and veggies all rolled into tortillas – these cream cheese roll ups will disappear in a flash at any party.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 package full size tortillas
  • 2- 8 oz packs light cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded cheese I use a 3 cheese blend
  • Green onion diced

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Make sure the cream cheese is softened, I pop mine in the microwave on half power for about 1 minute to help soften it so it mixes well. Mix the cream cheese, salsa, shredded cheese and green onion together. If it seems too soft then pop it in the fridge for up to 30 minutes to harden up a bit, otherwise you can spread onto the tortillas. You don’t want to spread too much, just enough to cover the whole tortilla.
  • Repeat with remaining mixture and roll the tortillas up. I typically get 8 tortillas rolled up, if you are getting less then you might be making them to thick.
  • Place rolled tortillas in the fridge for up to 30 minutes to harden up a bit and make cutting them easier.
  • Unfortunalty with this recipe you will have end pieces that do not look as pretty as the rest, you can still eat them, (I have friends that beg me to save the ends after a night of partying haha)
  • Each roll should produce 10 pieces plus 2 ends giving you 80 pieces to serve (and a bag full of ends)
  • Refrigerate till ready to serve, I have made these the night before and they still serve well although ideally I prefer to make them the same day I am serving them.
  • Based on my brands I use these are 1SP each, however you can have 5 pieces for 4SP. When entering the info into my WW recipe builder I put 112 as the serving since you basically lose 1/4 of each roll due to the ends.
  • *You can play around with the brands you use and get these to 2 pieces for 1SP, use fat free cream cheese, fat free shredded cheese, and/or lightened up tortillas if you can find them.
  • I did not figure out the nutritional info for these but you can easily input your brands used and how many you made into My Fitness Pal to determine the numbers.

MAKE-AHEAD AND STORAGE TIPS

Since these cream cheese ranch roll ups need to chill in the refrigerator overnight, they’re the perfect make-ahead appetizer.

If you want to get a jump on them even farther in advance, mix up the cream cheese mixture up to 3 days ahead of time. Store it in an airtight container in the fridge.

The night before your party, let the cream cheese come to room temp, then proceed with the recipe as written.

Can you freeze these roll ups?

The technical answer is yes, you couldfreeze these. I would put them in the freezer after rolling them; make sure to wrap them in a layer of plastic AND a layer of foil.

That said, I don’t know that I’d recommend it. The tortillas are likely to get soggy after thawing and the filling might acquire an odd texture, and that’s not really going to be the best experience for anyone.
