Not impressed at all. Served it as an appetizer over Thanksgiving weekend and again for Monday night football. Thought it might be just too much food to choose from during Thanksgiving but both times 3/4's of this recipe sat while everything else was devoured.
Tasted too "mayonaissey" to me. Would be better to thin the cream cheese with just the salsa and leave out the mayonnaise. One tip that makes the tortillas easier to roll is to heat each tortilla in the microwave for 30 seconds before spreading filling. It softens them up and makes it easier to roll them tight. (Out-of-the-fridge stiff tortillas leave a hole in the center when you roll them.)
Awesome! I too changed the recipe some. I used green chilis rather than green olives and I added a bit of minced garlic and just enough cayenne pepper to give it a tiny bite. I tripled the recipe and took them to the tavern we own for an appetizer. Even the guys were asking for the recipe! It was nice because I could pull them out of the fridge and slice them for serving as I needed them. I thought the longer they were in the fridge the better they tasted. Habit forming! I will definitely use this recipe a lot.
I really have no complaint about the recipe, as submitted. However, I was happily able to reduce calories from 428, per serving, to 183.5. And, reduced sodium content from 900mg to 192mg, per serving. [I substituted sour cream for the mayonnaise. I omitted the green olives and substituted 1/2 cup chopped red and/or green bell pepper.]
This recipe is very easy and is sure to please! The recipe calls for eight 10" tortillas--when I made it, I spread the filling just thick enough to cover each tortilla, yet the mixture only covered four tortillas. So if you really need to make eight tortillas' worth, you might consider making a larger batch. I made the filling a day in advance and refrigerated it overnight to allow the flavors to blend--yummy!--then softened it in the microwave for 4 minutes at 20% power.
I made these to take to a party and most everyone enjoyed them. They make a very pretty presentation if you add chopped parsley and slice them on the diagonal. Depending on your taste you can omit different ingredients; I have never used olives and they still turn out great. You can also use different flavors of tortillas; spinach (green) and tomato (red) would look festive for Christmas! UPDATE: I continue to take this appetizer to parties and ALWAYS receive compliments. It is just so easy tasty and pretty. Serve with salsa and you have a great appy.
This is a recipe that you can easily alter to suit your tastes. I omitted the black olives but added a small can of green chile peppers 1/4c diced red peppers and 3-blend taco cheese (and a little more of it). Tasty without dipping in salsa! HMMMM good!
