Tortilla roll-ups

Tortilla Roll-ups

  • 16 oz. sour cream
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 package Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
  • 8- 10 inch flour tortillas
  • Broccoli, chopped fine
  • Cauliflower, chopped fine
  • Green onions, chopped fine
  • Cheddar or Bermuda onion cheese, hand shredded
  • Bacon, cut up and fried

Mix first 3 ingredients and spread a heaping 1/3 cup of mixture onto tortilla.

Be sure to leave mixture 1 inch away from one side edge of the tortilla. Layer with broccoli, cauliflower, onions, cheese and bacon.

With the exception of the onions, use about 2-3 Tablespoons of each item and about 1 Tablespoon of the onions.

Starting on the side with the mixture closest to the edge, roll up tortilla toward the edge that has the mixture an inch away from the edge. This allows room for the filling to move as you roll it shut.

Chill several hours or overnight and then slice in 1 inch pieces. D & I are a 2 person household, so I often make a half batch of this recipe for just the 2 of us.
