Fast and Easy Party Wraps:
If it’s a gathering or party, you may want to double up some. Mix and match ingredients or put your own flare into these easy to make treats.
You can use flavored tortillas or flavored wraps. To add a naughty touch, add a few strips of bacon before rolling them up. Enjoy!
2 3 oz. packages of cream cheese
12 thin slices of tomato or cucumber
12 large spinach leaves or rocket (americans call it arugula; LOL I know I am American!)
4 8-10 inch flour tortillas or wraps (any flavor)
2 tbsp. of chives (optional)
2 tbsp. of dill (optional)
Thin Slices of ham, roast beef, turkey, Salami or chicken (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
This makes enough for 4 for a meal, but you can halve or double the recipe for parties.
- In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, chives and dill until blended. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spread about 1 tablespoonful over one side of each tortilla. Layer with tomato and spinach; spread with remaining cream cheese mixture. For meat lovers add slices of your favorite meat, fish or whatever else you’d like.
- Roll up tightly; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Unwrap and cut each into four slices.
If you like dice up your favorite chili and sprinkle over cream cheese mixture.
Add a bit of Tobasco or your favorite hot sauce.
Add chopped nuts or even dried fruit.
For a variation, add hummus instead of cream cheese!
