Pickled Tortilla Roll-Ups

 Serves 4


3 green onions, trimmed

12 mild pickled banana pepper rings (or mild cherry peppers, sliced)

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese

4 large flour tortillas

8 slices baked ham (about 3/4 pound)

2 medium carrots, grated

Alfalfa Sprouts

4 sliced-lengthwise-for-sandwiches dill pickles


For a festive party hors d'oeuvre, cut these rolls into slices and serve as finger food; or, make these the night before for packing in family lunch boxes or picnic baskets.

Cut onions and pickled pepper rings into small pieces; stir into cream cheese. Spread equal amounts of mixture onto four tortillas. Sprinkle surface with grated carrot and sprouts. Top each with 2 slices of ham and one sliced-lengthwise-for-sandwiches pickle. Roll tortillas from one side, keeping roll tight without pressing filling out. Serve immediately, or promptly wrap each roll tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate.
