Last weekend we had the pleasure of attending a BBQ hosted by our friends Andrew and Heide called “United Steaks of America”. I thought that name was pretty clever.
I didn’t bring my camera, so unfortunately I can’t say a lot about the BBQ except it was really good food, good people and those people seemed to like the appetizer I brought. Therefore, I am posting the recipe for the world to see. These roll-ups were really very simple, fresh tasting and inexpensive to make. You can probably tell from the picture that I used some dry, almost inedible tortillas – It will be a lot easier if you don’t follow my lead on this one. Fresh tortillas are much easier to roll.
Zesty Turkey Roll-Ups

Makes about 45-50 pieces (sushi roll bite size)
5 Flour Burrito Sized Tortillas
1 8oz Package Cream Cheese – Room Temp
½ Cup Sundried Tomatoes (drained of oil) Chopped
4-5 Tablespoons Thinly Sliced Green Onions
¼ Cup Sour Cream
½ Cup Grated White Cheddar (I used Tillamook)
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
Dashes of Tabasco
10 Slices of thinly slice turkey or ham
1 Cucumber Peeled
1 Bell Pepper
1 Avocado Diced
In a mixer or with hand mixer, beat cream cheese, sundried tomatoes, onions, sour cream, lemon juice, Tabasco and white cheddar on low for about 1 minute.
Slice cucumber and red pepper into matchstick size pieces.
Spread tortilla with cream cheese mixture.
Then add two slices of turkey or ham.
Add a few cucumber and pepper strips, and avocado dices.
Roll up tortilla tightly. Slice into 1 inch wide pieces and stick each slice with a toothpick.
A serrated knife works best to keep the roll in tact. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
