Game Day Appetizer Recipe: Green Chili Tortilla Roll Ups

I’m not the biggest football fan, but I can tell you what I do love about football: entertaining! I love having guests over to our house to watch the games and serve some delicious food. We go even bigger when it’s for the “Big Game” every February. To make sure I can watch the game (or half time + commercials), I keep things easy in the kitchen. These Green Chili Tortilla Roll Ups are an easy game day appetizer that you can make ahead of time.

Need a big game day recipe? These green chili tortillas roll ups are full of flavor. They're a cream cheese base, with olives, green chilis and shredded cheese. Just roll up and serve with salsa! #Football #GameDayFood #PartyFood #Appetizer #TortillaRollUps #gamedayfood #superbowlfoods #superbowlappetizers

When you’re cooking for an event, whether it’s a party or a holiday, you want recipe that you can make ahead of time. They just make life so much easier. These tortilla roll ups are full of flavor. They’ve got a cream cheese base with cheddar cheese, green chilis, green onions and olives. You mix everything together, roll them up and refrigerator. I just roll them into plastic wrap and keep them whole until it’s time to serve. Then, you can cut them into bite-size pieces and serve with your favorite salsa. 

For the big game, I like to prepare several finger food style recipes that guests can serve themselves. They can grab a quick bite during the commercial break. It’s also great because you don’t always have to worry about utensils. So if you’re truly tailgating, this recipe is great for that as well!
