September 26, 2008, Newsletter Issue #260: Flour Tortilla Spirals

Tip of the Week

Quick, easy, make-ahead snack is the keyword for these really good īsnacksī:

2 pkgs cream cheese softened
1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
1/2 cup chopped black olives
1 Tbsp chopped chives
1 Tbsp finely chopped jalapeno (toss away the seeds)
1 pkg flour tortillas (large size)
1/2 cup finely chopped pieces of ham (optional)

Mix first 5 ingredients by hand; spread onto flour tortillas about 1/4" thick then roll up. Chill for about 1 hour; just before serving, slice into approximately 1/2" īspiralsī. Can be rechilled, but too long in refrigerator can cause tortillas to become soggy.
