Expert Tips

  • Use an 8-oz block of cream cheese instead of cream cheese spread if you have that available. Just soften the cream cheese as directed on the package.
  • Give these 7 layers of flavor a little extra spice! Add two tablespoons of finely chopped jalapeno chiles in with the other toppings.
  • Mexican roll-ups are best when eaten within 2 to 3 hours of preparing. They can get a little soggy when they are made too far in advance before serving.
