How To Make Cheeseburger Roll Ups Recipe:
Cheeseburger Rollups Ingredients:
6 flour tortillas 8-10-inches
1 can nacho cheese sauce 15 oz
1 lb ground beef, cooked and crumbled
2 cups shredded lettuce
2 – 3 Roma tomatoes, diced
Step 1: Wash the lettuce, shake it off, and dry it on a paper towel. Take out a cutting board and dice your tomatoes.
If you are not using leftover ground beef, take out a large skillet and brown ground beef over medium-high heat until cooked through.
Step 2: Take out a large cookie sheet or tray and lay out several tortillas.
Step 3: Spread a layer of cheese sauce over each one.
Step 4: Sprinkle a layer of ground beef on top of the nacho cheese.
Step 5: Place a layer of lettuce on the ground beef mixture followed by the tomatoes on top of the lettuce.
Step 6: Roll up each tortilla as tightly as you can and place seam side down on a pan. Refrigerate for at least half an hour or until they are chilled.
Step 7: Using a sharp knife, cut the tortilla rollups into pieces across the long side, about 2-inches wide.
Serve these easy lunch rolls by themselves, with a small bowl of mustard or ketchup, or your favorite dipping sauce.
Can I Use Anything Other Than Nacho Cheese Sauce?
Yes! If you don’t have access to nacho cheese or you’d prefer to use something else, you can easily replace it with American cheese slices or the shredded cheese of your choice. Cheddar cheese is the natural option, but you could also use shredded mozzarella cheese or pepper jack for a little kick.
Can I Turn These Leftover Ground Beef Pinwheels Into Bacon Cheeseburger Pinwheels?
Yes! If you have some cooked bacon, crumble it into small pieces and add it to the layer of drained and lean ground beef. You could also lay slices of bacon on top of the cheese sauce. Voila, a bacon cheeseburger roll-up. Easy peasy.
What Else Can I Add To My Cheeseburger Rollup?
Since this easy recipe is a fun twist on your classic burger, the best options would be your favorite burger toppings. You could caramelize pieces from a small onion, dry some Claussen dill burger slices and lay them on top of the ground meat, or sprinkle on some sesame seeds to give you the crunch from a hamburger bun. Choose your favorites!
