Ingredients

  • 1 pkg frozen spinach thawed
  • 1 green onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup light cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped water chestnut
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 plain tortillas
  • 6 sun-dried_tomato-flavoured tortillas
  • 1 roasted red pepper sliced

Method

In sieve, press spinach to remove as much moisture as possible; finely chop and place in bowl. Add green onion, cream cheese and sour cream; stir to combine. Add water chestnuts, garlic, salt and pepper; mix well. Divide among tortillas, spreading over each and leaving 3/4-inch (2 cm) border.

Divide red pepper over top, lining up slices about 1-inch (2.5 cm) from 1 edge; starting at same edge, tightly roll up. Wrap individually in plastic wrap; refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.) Slice diagonally into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices.
