The appetizer that’s Meatless, Mexican && Mess-less to eat?!?! I give you, Mexican Tortilla Rollups!
Tortillas, greek cream cheese, vegetarian refried beans, diced green chile, shredded cheese, avocado, and salsa make this appetizer simple and easy to make.

Something fun that the office at Ascent Therapy Clinic has started to do is Potlucks! We have been loving this so much because we basically all meal prep for each other, and try to keep the theme of ‘healthy’ on deck. This particular potluck was called, “Everything but the Main Dish” and my first thought was rollups of some sort always make a great appetizer. I’m the girl who looks in her fridge and thinks, ‘okay what can I make from all this randomness’. I can get pretty creative, and sometimes it works and other times it’s… scary. These Mexican Tortilla Rollups turned out pretty good! Next time I will make a few changes {such as spread, roll, THEN CHILL, then cut} and also {I love me some avocado, but it does brown by Day 2 in the recipe}

Here are the ingredients for this awesome appetizer… Mexican Tortilla Rollups!

  • 8 Tortillas
  • 1 Block Greek Cream Cheese
  • 1 Can Vegetarian Refried Beans
  • 1 Cup Finely Shredded Cheese
  • 1 Can Green Chile
  • 1 Avocado – cubed
  • 1 Cup Salsa

Mexican Tortilla Rollups – The Perfect Summer Appetizer!

  • Mix Cream Cheese, Refried Beans & Green Chile’s together ( I love using my Kitchenaid, but can be done with a hand mixer too!)
  • Then add Shredded Cheese, Guacamole & Salsa (cube your avocado by cutting it in half and then each half make several cuts vertically and horizontally. Use a spoon to scoop it out! You can fold all these ingredients in with a spoon or spatula.)
  • Add your favorite spices! My choice was Garlic Powder, Cayenne Pepper & Sea Salt : )
  • Here’s where I would do it different… I thought chilling the mix for 30 minutes would be enough, but I wish I would have smeared the mix onto the tortillas, rolled the tortillas up (so they look like a sushi roll that hasn’t been cut yet hehe) and then chilled the entire thing for 30 minutes before cutting.
  • So instead of Spread, Roll & Cut… you would only have to take the rolls out of the fridge and then cut them up into bite size pieces!
  • Now, you’re ready for your Potluck : )
