directions

  • In a microwave safe bowl, soften the cream cheese in the microwave for about 10-20 sec.
  • Dice onions and olives fine and add to the cream cheese.
  • Now add the ranch dressing mix and stir this all together.
  • Spread about 1-2 Tbs. of mixture onto a flour tortilla and top with a piece of meat and a piece of cheese. You may use the meat or cheese of your choice. I usually make some with ham and cheddar and some with turkey and swiss.
  • Roll these up and wrap in a piece of saran wrap.
  • Place in refrigerator for about 2 hours or overnight and allow them to set.
  • Slice into 1 inch. pieces and enjoy.
  • Cooking time includes the time to set in refrigerator.

    This is a good base recipe. I used a few of these ingredients and a few of my own because I don't have some of them. I used cream cheese, sour cream, tortillas, garlic powder because i had no ranch powder, chives, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, turkey, and ham. I made some using turkey and the other ham. They are a huge hit at Christmas parties. They are gone in like 5 minutes if that. The garlic powder you have to go on taste because you can put too much in. I have used ranch powder once. Overkill. You use like half of what it calls for. Most recipes you find you have to put your own twist on it. You might have different tastes than others. Some like the saltiness and others like myself dont. To each their own.

    This is one of the easiest, and most popular finger foods you can bring to the party. And like one reviewer stated, you can easily change it up. I use sliced peppered turkey from the deli and since I'm not a fan of ranch, I use taco seasoning in the cream cheese. I recommend adding some kind of seasoning or it will be bland. You can even add spinach or romaine leaves for a little crunch. And don't forget there are spinach and tomato tortillas that will add flavor and color to the plate. Love this recipe!!

    Super easy recipe for a get-together! I didn't add the black olives and I did taste the mixture to be sure I didn't add too much ranch. Thanks for sharing!

    I made these for a picnic at the race track and everyone enjoyed them. I used turkey and swiss as that is what I preferred and everyone else didn't seem to mind LOL as they were all gone. I did use onion powder instead of onions as I didn't know if the children would like onions or not.
