Deli Rolls

**This was a nice light alternative for dinner and serve it with some fresh fruit and it makes a perfect summer night meal.**

For the kids: I added cream cheese and some ranch seasoning with sliced cheddar cheese and smoked turkey and lettuce.

For the adults: I used the chive flavored cream cheese, chipotle flavored cheddar cheese, smoked turkey and lettuce.

If I would have had more vegetables on hand I would have added some red bell peppers, and tomato to the adult ones. YUM!

As you can see there are alot of possiblilites for making these. If you like horseradish, (which I don't) you could use that with the roast beef, cheese and other vegetables. You can even make a peanut butter and jelly roll for the kids.

I hope this inspires you to be creative and have a nice, light dinner

Deli Rolls
Flour tortillas
tomatoes (optional)
bell peppers (optional)
Deli meat of your choice. Turkey, ham, chicken, roast beef.....
Cream cheese

Spread cream cheese over entire tortilla. layer cheese, meat and any vegetables on the 2/3 of the tortilla. Leave the last 1/3 free. As you roll the ingredients will shift a little and you don't want alot of bulk at the end. If you make these ahead of time, you can wrap in saran wrap or foil and refridgerate until ready to serve. Then you can slice them in wheels. If you are making them last minute, just slice them in wheels keeping the seam side down so they stay rolled up and closed.

Could you substitute something else for the cream cheese?

Hi Jess-
I have always used sour cream, but you need something to add some moisture. I have heard of vegetarians mashing up beans and using beans and vegetables, you could use a pesto, for people who like horseradish, you could use that. Here is a link I just found with some more ideas...
