Chile & Cheese Spirals




This Chile and Cheese Spirals recipe from Real Mom Kitchen makes a delicious and decorative appetizer for Christmas gatherings. I find it better after the filling has time to season.

Ingredients:

•4 ounces cream cheese, softened
•1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
•½ cup (4 ounce can) diced green chiles
•½ cup (about 3) sliced green onion
•½ cup chopped red bell pepper
•¼ cup chopped ripe olives
•4 (8-inch) soft taco-sized flour tortillas (the green ones I get are 12 inch so I only use 3)
•Salsa

Directions:

1.Combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, chiles, green onion, red pepper, and olives in a medium bowl.
2.Spread ½ cup cheese mixture over each tortillas; roll up.
3.Wrap each roll in plastic wrap twisting ends to close; refrigerate for 1 hour.
4.Remove plastic wrap; slice each roll into ¾ inch pieces.
5.Serve with salsa for dipping.
