Whenever I serve these make-ahead appetizers, they disappear fast. When a friend at the office shared them with me, I knew in one bite I'd be bringing her recipe home for the holidays. —Diane Martin, Brown Deer, Wisconsin

"Made these for our family gathering on Christmas Eve and they were a hit! Easy to make and when I told my kids to leave me some, they said, "How many?" We'll be making these for every family gathering from now on."

"This was yummy! I made it exactly as written. To prevent the filling from spilling out, I simply stopped spreading it about 1 inch from one side of the tortilla, then rolled the tortilla toward that end. The filling kind of squished and spread itself into that area as I rolled, and there was no spillage. Uses a very sharp non-serrated knife to cut it. I am also using this as a sandwich spread with avocado for my quick breakfast this morning. Delicious!"

"I have made these sooo often in the last couple of years. They are my favorite thing to take to any gathering, and I have never had any left to bring home. I agree with maureen104 - maybe the reason a person wouldn't like them is NOT the recipe as it was actually submitted, NOT the absence of meat - but perhaps it's because that person totally changed the recipe to something else?!"

"this recipe was ok... but there was no sort of meat to tie it all together... I used some cooked deli chicken shredded - no olives and no chilies! added veggie cream cheese (instead of the plain cream cheese) and a dab of mayo - fiesta ranch dry dressing mix (instead of taco seasonings) and added a dab of the picante sauce to bind it all together! i used the same measurements for the ingredients as I have listed - had to tone it down abit - cause I gots to keep my pancreas happy!"
