Ingredients

  • 1 container (250 g) spreadable light cream cheese

Preparation

  • In bowl, stir together cream cheese, 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the salsa, Cheddar cheese and cilantro, combine thoroughly.
  • Place tortillas on work surface. Divide and spread the cheese mixture evenly among tortillas, leaving a 1-inch (2.5-cm) border around the outside of the tortilla.
  • Spoon 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the remaining salsa in a straight line 1-inch (2.5 cm) from the bottom end of each tortilla (end closest to you).
  • Starting from the side of the tortilla with the salsa, roll up jelly-roll-style.
  • Place rolled tortilla on a piece of waxed paper or plastic wrap and roll to enclose the tortilla; twist or fold ends to seal.
  • Place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours.
  • Remove roll-up from wrap and slice both ends from each roll; discard.
  • Slice each roll-up into 1/2-inch (1.25 cm) slices on the diagonal, to produce 8 slices each.
  • Place slices on serving tray and garnish with fresh sprigs of cilantro.
