*Mexican Tortilla Roll-Ups*
One of my favorite appetizers as well as my sons,Jonathan and Daniel's favorite! If desired, use a few, chopped, canned jalapenos instead of green chilies. I will have a gluten-free wrap recipe one of these days. Just need to test it again soon and make sure it is blog-worthy.
8 oz light cream cheese, (250 g)
4.5 oz can chopped green chilies (127 mL)
1/2 cup grated Cheddar Cheese, (125 mL)
1/3 cup chopped green onions (75 mL)
1/2 tsp crushed garlic (2 mL)
8 Whey Tortillas, Splendid Low-Carbing,
page 123, OR low-carb commercial ones
In medium bowl, combine softened cream cheese, green chilies, grated Cheddar cheese (if using), finely chopped green onions and garlic. Cover each tortilla with cream cheese spread. Roll up each tortilla. Place tortillas on dinner plate and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours or more. Slice into narrow pieces; serve with Salsa for dipping.
Nutritional Analysis: 8 servings, 1 serving (to clarify, this is the number of carbs for one tortilla plus filling - so, several pinwheels - probably about 8 or so.)
