These are super easy and pretty good! Loved the avocado, red onion, and roasted red peppers! My store did not carry the Alouette product listed, so I substituted Kraft Philadelphia's spreadable Spinach & Artichoke cream cheese. Thanks, CJ Alouette! Made for PAC Fall 2009.

I LOVE this recipe. It was easy, fun and attractive. Served it at a labor day party as an appetizer and everyone loved it. I jused the spinach tortillas and one regular flour for an added color mix. Used the sundried tomatoes inside and added pepporcini peppers. They were creamy with just the right spice to them and not a one was left. Thanks so much for a great recipe that I'll be using again and again.
