Fiesta Tortilla Roll Ups ~ Fiesta Tortilla Roll Ups ~ Easy to prepare appetizer recipe that is super tasty when served with salsa! Rolls can be made ahead and extras can be frozen.
This appetizer was served several times during the holiday season because it’s so easy to prepare and because it’s so tasty there usually isn’t much leftover. I also love how pretty it looks on a serving platter when you use red coloured sun-dried tomato and green coloured spinach tortilla wraps.
It’s a really convenient appetizer to make because it can be made a day ahead and the extra tortilla rolls can be wrapped in plastic wrap and stored in the freezer to be enjoyed at a later time.
Not only are the Fiesta Tortilla Roll Ups a great appetizer but they can also be something different to serve in a school lunch too! Just pull the frozen tortilla rolls out of the freezer and let them defrost in the refrigerator. When you are prepping school lunches cut them up into bite size pieces and place in a plastic container along with a separate container for the salsa. It makes a super quick and a super tasting different lunch idea!

We have a Christmas Eve tradition where we prepare and serve a variety of hot and cold appetizers to enjoy while sitting together as a family at the dining room table. It was a small and quiet Christmas this year with just my husband and my two daughters who came home for the holidays from their school studies. My 88 year old father also came from his Senior Living Home in the city for a few days too!
Tips For Creating A Beautiful Christmas Tablescape shows how pretty the table looked and this Smoked Salmon Appetizer was one of the other favourite dishes that we served. It’s a lovely way to celebrate the evening eating an assortment of finger foods and having a good visit with everyone.
We also prefer to stay in on New Year’s Eve and you can guess what’s going to be served on that special occasion as well!
How do you celebrate Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve and what favourite dishes do you serve?
