    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 tortilla, shell taco size works best
    • 1 tablespoon cream cheese
    • 4 -6 slices cucumbers (sliced thin)
    • 3 -5 slices red peppers (sliced thin)
    • salt and pepper

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat the shell in the microwave for 8-10 seconds just to soften it a bit (I keep my shells in the refrigerator and pull one or two out at a time). Also, taco size does work best - I've used the bigger shells, but they are harder to hold and the veggies tend to fall out.
    2. 2
      Spread cream cheese onto the tortilla shell (use more of less depending on your taste). I use neufchatel cheese instead because it has less fat and I think it taste better and spreads better than regular cream cheese. I don't like the texture of the spreadable cream cheese in the tub.
    3. 3
      Place cucumber slices and red pepper slices on top of the cream cheese. The number of slices depends on what you like and how big the veggies are. Also, I tend to always use red peppers for this -- green just doesn't have the right flavor. Yellow is ok, but red just taste better with the ingredients.
    4. 4
      Lightly salt and pepper.
    5. 5
      Roll up. If your tortilla doesn't want to stay rolled up, spread a little cream cheese on the outer edge and press.
    6. 6
      I wrap these up individually and take them for lunch. A yummy and healthy lunch.
    7. 7
      For a change of pace, add some lettuce or other veggie favorites.

      These made a great lunch yesterday...especially in the heat wave we are having. I tweaked this recipe just a little bit..cut the cucumbers into matchstick pieces, and put a good pinch of curry into the cream cheese before smearing on tortilla. I can really see lots of combinations for this. Thanks for a yummy lunch. This will go into my Make Again cookbook.
