These makes a wonderful addition to a buffet table and will be enjoyed by everyone! Plan ahead, the tortilla rolls must be chilled for at least 2 hours before slicing…
Serve with your favorite salsa
Servings about 4-1/2 dozen
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoons taco seasoning mix (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (16-ounce) can refried beans
8 (10-inch) flour tortillas (make certain the tortillas are at room temperature for easy rolling)
3 cups shredded head lettuce
2 large Roma tomatoes, finely chopped
2 (4-ounce) cans chopped green chilies
1 cup finely chopped black or green olives (or can use half each)
In a medium bowl combine the soft cream cheese with taco seasoning and garlic powder until well blended.
Stir in the refried beans until thoroughly combined.
Spread about 3-4 tablespoons over each tortilla.
Layer the shredded lettuce, tomatoes, chilies and olives down the center of each tortilla.
Roll up as tightly as possible to about 2-inches in diameter.
Wrap each rolled tortilla in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Slice each rolled tortilla into about 1-inch slices (at this point you may place on a platter cover with plastic wrap then refrigerate until ready to serve).
