MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 5, 2011

Loved this recipe! I tweaked it slightly using what I had on hand. Forgive me, but I used regular cream cheese-decadent! I used some delicious spicy deli turkey and added the chopped scallions into the tortillas. Served it with homemade cranberry-orange sauce. This recipe made a lot more than I realized it would. Great for a party and the prep did go quickly. Got great reviews from my family. Will be great for a supper on Thanksgiving weekend. Thank you for sharing!

Tasty although I would have liked a little more kick to it... maybe add a little chopped onion for inside the spiral. I used low-fat wraps instead of flour tortillas for an even lower calorie & carb content.
