Tortilla Spirals / Mexican Roll-ups

These are a great starter for a Mexican themed party. They are easy to make and few ingredients go a long way. They do need a 2 hour lead time as they have to be refrigerated. The quantity below makes about 24 roll ups.


4 tortillas, 6 inch diameter
6 tablespoons cream cheese
1/4 cup finely grated carrots
1/4 cup finely grated green peppers
1/3 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning

Bring the cream cheese to room temperature and add all the ingredients except salt. Mix thoroughly and adjust for salt. Take about a heaping tablespoon of the cream cheese mix and spread evenly over the tortilla. Leave an edge of 1/2 centimeter / 1/4 inch around the edge to prevent squeezing out.

Roll up tightly and cover with cling film. Refridgerate for 2 hours. Then remove from wrap and cut each roll into 1 inch pieces while chilled. Bring to room temperature and serve with a side of salsa. Enjoy!
