"These versatile, Mexican morsels are fun to make and great to nibble. Once made, they can be stored in the refrigerator up to a week or even frozen. Omit the chicken if a vegetarian version is preferred, and adjust the hotness to your taste with the cayenne pepper. These are celebrated party fare, though they can be well enjoyed to accompany a steaming bowl of soup. Source: Chef, Sarah Leah Chase"

Daily Inspiration

Very tasty -- loved the combination of flavors with the olives,sundried tomatoes and chilies. The combination of the cream cheese and goat cheese really adds a nice tartness. Had to use smaller flour tortillas so I had some tortilla rolls to freeze for next football Sunday.
