Asparagus, Red Pepper, Tortilla Roll - Easy!

This is a really easy recipe and great for cocktails, or the upcoming holidays! Never too soon to start thinking about it!

There is a full tutorial on YouTube:


Here are the ingredients:
1 Bundle of asparagus
1-2 Red peppers, depending on size
4 flour tortillas (7-8 inches in diameter)
1 small container of garden vegetable cream cheese

Put asparagus into boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Rinse with cold water and drain well. Julianne red pepper(s) into 1/4's pieces. Spread 1/4 of cream cheese onto each tortilla. Put 3 red peppers and 2 asparagus on to each roll. Roll tightly. Wrap in cling wrap. Refrigerate a minimum of 1/2 an hour - can be done the night before. Take from refrigerator and slice. Arrange on a plate, garnish and you have an easy finger food/appetizer for your guests.

Thank you for that great looking recipe, Mona!

It almost looks like sushi maki rolls!

I see all kinds of variations that could be used making them.

Thanks again!

Definitely look like Sushi rolls...very fun to make non-sushi for some who won't eat it.

Thanks for the recipe!

How timely could this be? DH brought home asparagus, we have peppers and cream cheese, and I have lefse! Hope you don't mind me taking liberties with your recipe, Mona!

This sounds really good! Thanks!

I've already made a list of items to buy for them.

Krab Sticks
Shrimp
Thin sliced ham
Cheddar Block
Spring Onions
Yellow, Red and Green Bell Pepper
Shredded carrot
Celery

I'm going to make an entire supper of various combinations of those ingredients in your rolls.

I thought maybe of using Spanish rice in them also maybe. That would add some color and help hold everything in place after cutting the discs off.
