Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time2 hrs
Total Time2 hrs 15 mins
Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: Mexican
Servings: 16 servings


  • 8, 10" Flour Burrito Tortillas
  • 1 cup Salsa
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese
  • 4 oz Sour Cream
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 tablespoon Taco Seasoning
  • 4.5 oz can sliced or chopped black olives (drained)
  • 1 Green Onion (chopped)


  • Set aside the tortillas, and then combine all remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Once thoroughly combined, scoop out roughly ~⅓ cup of the mixture and spread it evenly onto one side each tortilla.
  • Starting at one end, tightly roll up each tortilla and place it seam side down on a tray.
  • Once all tortillas have been rolled, cover with plastic and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to soften and absorb flavors.
  • Cut into 1" pieces and serve!


These don't require any cooking, however I do think they are best after they have softened in the refrigerator for a couple hours. That is why my recipe shows a "2 hour Cook Time".
