Paula Deen's Lean: Santa Fe Wraps

These little nibbles are a lunch, a snack or an appetizer...all wrapped up into one! I made these Friday evening, as an appetizer for my sister, her husband and a friend of ours. But with so many left-over (the recipe makes a ton), they became a quick "go-to" snack or lunch all weekend long!

Makes 15 Servings


2 (8-ounce) packages REDUCED FAT cream cheese, softened
1 cup FAT FREE sour cream
1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chilies
1 (4.25-ounce) can chopped olives
1 cup (4-ounces) shredded 2% MEXICAN cheese
3 green onions, sliced
2 tablespoons salsa
1 cup chopped fresh spinach
2 (.25-ounce) packages LOW-FAT/LOW-CARB tortillas(Suggested Brand: Toufayan Bakeries)
Salsa (optional)

In a large bowl, combine first 7 ingredients. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Stir in spinach. Spread mixture evenly over the surface of each tortilla. Roll up tortillas tightly and cut each tortilla crosswise into 6 slices. Skewer each wrap with a wooden pick. Serve immediately or chill. Serve with salsa for dipping.

RESULTS:They were delicious! The next time I make them, I might try adding some tiny pieces of chicken or maybe some black beans. Santa Fe Wraps are best when served with salsa, as suggested by Paula. Don't worry about the added calories from the salsa. Salsa is one of the healthiest, lightest and nutritious condiments you can add to your meals. Just 10 calories are all it costs for adding tons of flavor to your food. Try it some time on chicken, salad or baked potatoes. ENJOY!!
