Mexican Tortilla Roll-Ups

It is with great sadness that we are off to celebrate the life of my Auntie Lynn today. After the service, we are heading out to family farm where my Auntie Lynn and Uncle Murray raised their family. I am not sure who all will be there, but we have a large family with members stretched from coast to coast. It is only a year since my Grandma passed away and the family joined to celebrate her life. We meet again much too soon or at least too soon to be gathering for another lost icon in our family. Despite the terrible loss, it will be nice to catch-up with everyone and I thought I would take a few Mexican appetizers to help feed the masses when the service is over and family gather at the farm. There are many versions of this recipe. I got this one from a friend several years ago and am not sure of the original source. It is an easy and yummy appetizer that would also make a great snack or lunch for kids.

Mexican Tortilla Roll-Ups


  • 1 package of cream cheese (8 0z or 250g)
  • 1/3 cup of sour cream
  • 1 Tablespoon  of salsa (I added 2 T.)
  • 3 chopped green onions
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 large package of flour tortillas
  • 1 Tablespoon of taco seasoning (This isn’t in the original recipe, but I added it to mine.)

Mix the ingredients in a bowl. Scoop some of the mixture on each tortilla and spread it to cover the surface. Roll the tortilla like a cinnamon roll. Store in layers, covering each layer with a damp paper towel. Store in an air tight container in the fridge. When you are ready to serve them, cut each roll into 1″ slices and serve with extra salsa.
