Step by Step Instructions:

Mixing the ingredients together in a bowl with a wooden spoon

Step 1 – Combine spinach, ranch dressing mix, sour cream, cream cheese, bacon bits and green onions together in a mixing bowl.  

Spread the spinach mixture on a tortilla

Step 2 – Spread the cream cheese filling on each tortilla and roll it up tightly, jelly-roll style.

Wrap the tortilla in a plastic wrap

Step 3 – Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Slicing the tortilla into small slices

Step 4 – When ready to serve, slice each wrap into approximately ¾” thick rounds. Serve cold and enjoy! 

Recipe Tips:

  • Softened Cream Cheese – Before combining the ingredients make sure the cream cheese has softened to room temperatures. This helps to create a smooth and creamy mixture.
  • Spreading Spinach Mixture – After combining the spinach, cream cheese and seasoning together in a bowl. Spread a thin layer on a tortilla. You want to make sure the layer is not to thick as you want to be able to roll the tortilla without losing to much of the mixture.
  • Rolling Tortilla – After spreading the mixture, roll the tortilla tightly and then wrap with plastic wrap. You may need to help with this part if your kids are helping.
  • Slicing Rolls Ups –Slice the tortilla rounds about ¾ inch thick rounds with a serrated knife. This is the perfect size for serving as an appetizer.
  • Spinach – We recommend using frozen spinach instead of fresh spinach in this recipe. Make sure your spinach is thawed and drained before mixing with the other ingredients.

How Long Do you Chill Roll Ups:

After wrapping the tortilla roll ups with plastic wrap, we recommend placing the spinach roll ups in the fridge for at least 3 hours. This allows for the mixture to marinate together for the best flavor.

This also helps the tortilla to seal better for slicing and serving.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I Make Ahead of Time?

Yes, this is the perfect recipe to make ahead of time. That is probably one of the main reasons I make these for all our gatherings. Since roll ups need time to chill, you can easily make these the night before serving.

How to Store Leftovers:

Store any leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

How Long Will They Last:

These spinach rolls ups are best to be served within 4 days of making it. This is best because the tortilla will start to get soggy.

Can I Freeze?

Yes, you can freeze these spinach roll ups. Prepare the roll ups as the recipe indicates and then place on a baking sheet and flash freeze for about an hour. Then place in a freezer container or freeze zip lock bag and freeze up to a month. One ready to serve, take out the number you need and thaw overnight in the fridge.
