I have a recipe on the site that I posted the first summer I was blogging and it has consistently remained one of my most popular recipes.  Cream Cheese Ranch Rollups are hard to beat when it comes to feeding a crowd.

I have never had a party where these rollups weren’t the first thing to disappear.

So when contemplating how to make something containing cream cheese and ranch dressing mix even better, where did I turn? To bacon, of course.

Bacon always makes things better.

This version – Bacon Ranch Cream Cheese Rollups – uses scallions and red peppers just like the original version, but replaces the minced black olives with finely chopped cooked bacon.

I also chose to use my Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix in lieu of the packaged mix. If you use the homemade mix, you will need about 3 tablespoons. Of course, you could still use the packaged mix, but I promise that once you try the homemade version, you will never go back.

Aaron would love this. Nay, ADORE THEM. Anything with cheese and bacon is his jam (or his... cheese?). I should probably just give him the whole rolled tortilla for lunch ;P

Finger food at it's finest! I'll have to make a double batch in an attempt to freeze some, if they last that long, that's only with me snacking on these little beauties! Thanks for sharing, Odelle Smith x.
