Food Friday: Tortilla Swirls

Every New Year's Eve, we get together with the same people each year. I brought this once and was told I had to bring it every year or I would be sent home until I had it. This year I made it and had several of the ingredients left over except for tortillas. I wound up needing to bring something to an event and since I'm participating in the Eat from the Pantry challenge I turned to this recipe. Since I didn't have tortillas, I simply made the filling and served it with crackers as a dip. Several people asked me for the recipe so I think it was a good choice.

Tortilla Swirls
from Weight Watchers Simply the Best Cookbook

3/4 cup nonfat cream cheese
1/2 cup nonfat sour cream
1 cup shredded nonfat sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
8 scallions, thinly sliced
2 tsp fresh lime juice
Nine 6" fat free flour tortillas

1. In a small bowl, with an electric mixer at medium speed, beat the cream cheese and sour cream until smooth. With the mixer at low speed, blend in the cheddar cheese, pepper, scallions, and lime juice.

2. Place the tortillas on a work surface. Spread about 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture on each tortilla; roll up and place, seam-side down, on a plate. Cover the rolls with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour.

3. With a serrated knife, cut each tortilla roll into 6 equal slices; arrange, cut-side up, on a serving platter.

This sounds like something my little boy would like. He LOVES bell peppers! I'll add it to the menu list for lunch next week and report back!
