I'll Just Call Them Jalapeno Cream Cheese Rotellas

My friend Lauren makes these yummy rolled up snacks when we have gatherings at her house and last week I finally asked her what she used in them! I was in the mood for them. I never asked what she calls them or if there was already a name for them so I made up my own, haha!

Any ways it's just:
  • One 8oz brick of cream cheese
  • some diced jalapenos [I bought a jar & used a couple spoonfuls]
  • Some diced green onions
  • Tortillas

I then bought everything I needed then had to ask her how she mixed it, haha! Wasn't sure if she just put it in a bowl or used a mixer. She just said a bowl, mixer would be easier if you're in a hurry, if not let the cream cheese soften up some.

Then just put the mixture on a tortilla and roll it up. I did that and swore it wasn't big enough, so looked online, haha, yep I'm that dork ;) I actually only used half a brick this time since it was just me who was going to eat them and she said she usually used 5 tortillas for these.

Lauren told me after you roll them its easier to cut them if you put them in the fridge for a little, so I did that for maybe an hour max, I can't remember I've been cleaning up the house for Thanksgiving =P They cut very easily that way though and they were de-lish! :) 

I'm not sure if my husband liked it, he ate one bite and didn't have more, but he was also playing a game an already ate dinner before hand. But our 2 & 1/2 year old daughter loved them! I thought they were a touch spicy for me so I thought there's no way she'd like them, but she kept asking for more =P

Well that's all, just wanted to share a quick and easy recipe I learned :)
