A made some variations on this recipe and came out with a great appetizer to contribute to my friend's cocktail party. First, I used green and red tortillas for some color. Then, I made the filling a half cream cheese and half sour cream mixture. Then I alternated filling - black olives for some, canned green chiles for others, and some both together. Sprinkled a little paprika in there too. This worked out well.

I have made these for years. They are so good. Always an empty plate to take home. I make mine with cream cheese, grated Colby Jack cheese, small can green chilies, green onions, sliced black olives & sometimes I add ham. You can really put anything you like inside. Experiment & have fun with it.



good, I would add more cream cheese next time. I had to spread it so thin that you could barely tell it was there. These are really great to do if you would like to get ready the night before a party.
