Green Chili and Cheese Roll-ups

This is one of my favorite appetizers to take to a pot-luck. They are always devoured quickly and I never fail to have several requests for the recipe. They are easy to make and the ingredients are inexpensive.

8 oz. package of softened cream cheese
7 oz. can of diced green chilis
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1 can of chopped black olives
3 or 4 scallions, chopped finely
1 pack of 6" flour tortillas

Mix first five ingredients together well. Spread about a half cup onto a tortilla, making sure to get an even layer all the way to the edges. Roll up, then seal each one in a piece of plastic wrap.
When all are wrapped, store in the refrigerator overnight or longer. When ready to serve just unwrap and slice each roll in 1/2" to 3/4" slices and put on a serving tray. They may be served with salsa if desired.

This recipe makes about 50 appetizers, depending on how thick you cut the slices.
