Spicy and cool

As promised, my recipe using the pickled jalapeno wedding favor. This is adapted from a recipe I used to help my mom make for parties. It's simple, easy and can be made a day in advance and refrigerated.

Jalapeno Cream Cheese Appetizer Rollups

Two large flour tortillas
1 oz. bar 1/3 less fat Philadelphia Cream Cheese
6 oz. pickled jalapeno peppers (use less if you're sensitive to the spice!)
1 large roasted red bell pepper (fresh or from a jar)
juice of 1/2 lemon
salt, pepper

Finely chop red pepper while cream cheese softens. In a medium bowl, combine both types of pepper, lemon juice and cream cheese with salt and pepper to taste. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over both tortillas. Roll up. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. When ready to serve, cut into slices.
