Ingredients

  • 6 large tortillas, I like spinach flavor or sun-dried tomato but can use regular (see above notes)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • pinch salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • 2 TBS garlic
  • 6 ounces sun-dried tomatoes in oil, chopped and oil reserved
  • 10-12 ounces frozen spinach, cooked, water squeezed out, chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese crumbles
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves

Instructions

  1. First make the cream cheese mixture: Add cream cheese, 2 TBS garlic, 3-4 sun-dried tomatoes, salt, pepper, 5-6 basil leaves, and 2 TBS oil from the sun-dried tomatoes jar to the bowl of a food processor or blender. Blend for 30 seconds, scrape down the sides, and blend 10-15 more seconds or until completely combined. Set aside.

  2. Set out 6 tortillas (I like flavored tortillas like spinach or sun-dried tomato for this recipe, but you can also use plain flour or LOW CARB).

  3. Assemble: On each tortilla spread a thick layer of cream cheese, chopped spinach, chopped sun-dried tomatoes, 1 tsp parmesan cheese, 1-2 tsp feta cheese. In the center, make a line from end to end of fresh basil leaves.

  4. Starting from an outer edge parallel to the basil, roll tightly while gently squeezing to keep together. Repeat for all tortillas.

  5. Using a serrated knife, cut in about 1 inch pinwheels. Repeat for all tortillas.

  6. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Enjoy!
