Zesty Turkey Roll-Ups



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

Printable recipe here

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. 

Set aside.

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.
