Game day-inspired tortilla roll ups

Whether you watch the Super Bowl for the thrill of the competition or to see advertisers go head to head for the title of Year's Funniest Commercial, you need some choice grub to keep your armchair quarterbacks in peak watching condition.  
Gridiron tortilla roll-ups

Tortilla roll ups are a crowd-pleasing finger food not traditionally associated with football. Amp up the flavor with these game day-inspired tidbits.

If you're a home cook, Super Bowl parties seem like the perfect opportunity to show off your culinary skills. Football fans aren't picky. They want simple, easy-to-eat finger foods they can snack on between plays. Tortilla roll ups are a no-fuss favorite, but traditional roll up recipes are a bit dainty to stand up to the traditional football game beverages (like beer). These tortilla roll ups are not only hearty and delicious, but require just enough cooking to let you keep your party chef bragging rights all year long.

Choose from any of these three delicious varieties (or just make all three!).
