Spinach Rolls

Home SCA My Cats Cooking Photos Music I Like Comics

 

2 boxes frozen chopped spinach, thawed
2 package cream cheese, softened
1 bottle bacon bits
4 green onions, finely chopped (green stems only)
1 package ranch dressing mix
1 cup mayonnaise
1 package large flour tortillas

Squeeze all water from the spinach. (A couple of layers of cheesecloth is useful for this. Each box of spinach should squeeze into a ball about the size of a baseball) Mince the spinach again after getting rid of the water, taking small chunks off the ball’o’spinach. In a large bowl, mix the softened cream cheese, bacon bits, ranch dressing mix, and green onions. Stir in the spinach (mixture will be very thick.) Stir in mayonnaise, spoonfuls at a time, until the mixture it of easily spreadable consistency.  I like to use my food processor for the whole chopping and mixing bit.  be sure to only pulse and just until everything is mixed.  You don't want to create green goo.

Spread the mixture fairly thinly on tortillas out to inch from edge. Roll tightly (but not so tight to squish out the mixture) and refrigerate overnight. Cut into slices and serve. 

Note: Recipe can be changed to be low-fat with low-fat cream cheese, mayo, and bacon bits. Also, amounts of bacon bits and green onions can be changed to suit your taste.
