Spicy Tortilla Rollups

Note:    It is the big countdown to the Superbowl!    This weekend people all around me are going to be going crazy for this game.     We decided to invite some friends over for the game.     I am going to make some foods that I can put out and are easy for people to serve themselves and eat in the living room.

Spicy Tortilla Rollups

5 large flour tortillas
1 2 ounce can of sliced olives
4 ounces chopped green chilies- drained
1 Tbsp. Tabasco sauce
8 ounces cream cheese - softened
8 ounces sour cream
1/2 pound cheddar cheese - shredded
Salt and pepper to taste

Have tortillas at room temperature. Place the remaining ingredients in a bowl and, with an electric mixer, combine all until well distributed. Spread mixture fairly thin and evenly on tortillas to within 1/8 inch of edge. Roll up jelly-roll fashion and wrap each tortilla in plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight.   Because tortillas have a tendency to dry out, only slice when ready to serve, slice in 3/4 inch rounds and arrange on serving plate. Serve plain or with salsa.

I've made something similar. They weren't spicy, but these are good and surely easy to make.

I've had similar and yes, it's wonderful. Enjoy your time. It'll be just the 3 of us. Alone. No one else. Sniffle sniffle.
