Spicy Tortilla Wrap-Ups

11 Jul

I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com. I tried it on a whim last year to bring to a picnic and fell in love with it immediately…..so did everyone else!

The ingredients

This is PERFECT to bring to a picnic/party/BBQ/tailgate/whatever! It’s the right amount of spice and creaminess and zing!

Now stir this together!

Schmear the mixture onto the tortilla

You can control the heat in this recipe and adjust it accordingly for your audience. I’ve made it REALLY hot before (not as good) and I’ve made it not-so-hot before (also, not as good). It’s best to find a good medium.

Roll ’em up!

These wrap-ups are super easy to throw together the night before, too! I love do-ahead recipes. I made these most recently for a Dave Matthews Band tailgate in Saratoga Springs, NY (SPAC). It was a huge hit and they keep well!

All sliced up and ready for the tailgate

Spicy Tortilla Wrap-Ups


  •                     1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  •                     1 (2 ounce) can chopped black olives
  •                     1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles
  •                     1 (4 ounce) jar sliced pimento peppers, drained
  •                     2 green onions, minced
  •                     3 tablespoons hot pepper sauce
  •                     3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  •                     10 (10 inch) flour tortillas

In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, olives, chiles, pimentos, green onions, hot sauce and fresh cilantro. Spread the mixture onto tortillas. Roll the tortillas up and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Slice the roll ups and serve.
