1/1 Photo of Easy Spinach-Bacon Tortilla Roll-Ups
6 hrs 7 mins
These are SOOO DELICIOUS! Perfect to serve at a get together or for a weekend snack. Plan ahead the stuffed tortillas must be chilled for about about 5 hours before slicing to firm up and blend the flavors. If you slice the rolls into about 3/4-inch slices you should get about 28-30 slices, this recipe can easily be doubled. Prep time includes chilling time. Just to let you know, I have even stuffed, rolled and sliced the tortillas then froze the slices until ready to be baked, it's a huge time-saver if you are serving them for a get together as everything is done in advance, there great to have handy in your freezer for a snack also. The water chestnuts are optional, I like to add them in!
