Cream Cheese Roll-Ups

I got this recipe years ago from a friend at church.  She brought them to a baby shower and I had to get the recipe for myself!  My family loves them and we had fun brainstorming alternative fillings.

Cream Cheese Roll-Ups

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 4 oz. mild green chiles, drained
  • 1 C. shredded cheddar
  • 2 Tbsp. taco seasoning (optional)
  • 4-5 flour tortillas

Directions:

In medium bowl, mix sour cream, cream cheese, chiles, cheddar, and taco seasoning (if desired).  Spread evenly on tortillas.  Roll up each tortilla somewhat tightly.  Place in gallon ziploc or wrap in plastic wrap.  Put in fridge to chill.  Once chilled and firm, place on cutting board and slice into bite-size spirals.  Serve with salsa.

*Variation: luncheon meat & diced dill pickle instead of green chiles (omit taco seasoning)

Coconut Date Rolls

There is a grocery store about 30 minutes away that specializes in health foods.  They carry coconut date rolls in their bulk food section, but they are crazy expensive.  I decided to try my hand at making them and save some money, to boot.  They were very easy to make and ended up tasting delicious!  Next time I will try making them with fewer almonds because the coconut had a hard time sticking.  They were still really good, though.  For anyone who has a sweet tooth, these are very satisfying.  I enjoyed snacking on these instead of a candy bar or other sweet treat.

The recipe can be found at Food.com.  Guess what?  It only uses three ingredients!
