These Veggie Cream Cheese Tortilla Roll Ups are a party favorite, stuffed with any combination of fillings and any flavor of tortilla. Today, I’m using a flavorful spinach tortilla and filling with my own homemade veggie cream cheese.
Soften your cream cheese while you are prepping your veggies. I finely dice the cucumber, multi-color peppers, celery and onion and finely grated the carrots. Chop parsley and dill.
Add the veggies to your cream cheese.
And shredded cheddar cheese. I reserve a bit for sprinkling as I roll.
These are my favorite tortillas. Not sponsored, just love them 🙂 Feel free to use whatever you like. I sometimes do a mix of spinach and sun dried tomato tortillas. It makes for a really pretty presentation.
As I mentioned above, I reserve some of the shredded cheese for sprinkling, but you don’t have to. It’ll all get in there one way or another.
CHEF’S TIP: If your tortillas are stiffer, microwave them for a few seconds just enough so that it makes rolling easier. Mine were perfectly fine, but you want them pliable so that you can roll tightly. Tuck and roll as you go. If you get to the end and there is just too much filling, scoop it out for a clean seam.
Place the finished roll onto plastic wrap.
Roll and twist both ends tightly. This will help keep the tortillas compact until that filling becomes more stable. Freeze for about 30 minutes before slicing.
Just before you are ready to serve, remove the plastic wrap and slice. I find a serrated knife works best for this job.
Place on a serving platter, keeping cold until ready to enjoy!
