Recipe: Tortilla Rolls

1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons seeded and chopped jalapeno peppers (see note)
2 teaspoons tomato ketchup
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
5 (10-inch) flour tortillas
8 ounces cooked turkey, sliced
2 tablespoons black olives, chopped

  • In a bowl, with an electric mixer on mediumspeed, beat softened cream cheese until smooth. Add chopped peppers,ketchup, chili powder, and garlic powder; mix well.
  • Spread over flour tortillas and top withsliced turkey and chopped black olives.
  • Roll up jelly-roll fashion and chill for2 hours. Slice into 1-inch pieces.

    Makes 20.

    Note: Working with jalapeños orother chiles: Capsaicin is the ingredient in chiles that causesthe burning sensation associated with fresh peppers. It’s a goodidea to use rubber gloves when handling fresh chiles. (Disposablesurgical gloves, available at most drugstores, work best forthis.) If you choose not to use gloves, be extremely carefulnot to touch any part of your body, especially your eyes. Afteryou’ve finished handling the chiles, wash your knife and cuttingboard with hot soapy water to ensure that there is no carry-overto other foods that may come in contact with the peppers.
