    My Private Note


    Serves: 8-10



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (8 ounce) brick cream cheese (softened)
    • 16 ounces sour cream
    • 1 (1 ounce) packet packet Hidden Valley Ranch dip (dry)
    • 1 lb deli ham, sliced thin but not shaved (not honey ham!)
    • 1 (14 ounce) package azteca flour tortillas (8 large ones per pack, in the refrigerator section)


    1. 1
      In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, sour cream and dry ranch dip mix.
    2. 2
      Beat until no lumps remain.
    3. 3
      Put a very thin layer of the cheese mixture on a tortilla, being sure not to go all the way to the edge.
    4. 4
      Place slices of ham on top (I always put one piece in the middle and then cut other pieces to fit around the edges), again being careful not to go all the way to the edge.
    5. 5
      Start tightly rolling the tortilla. Try to keep everything inside so the cheese mixture and ham don't come out.
    6. 6
      Roll up tightly in plastic wrap and place in the fridge or freezer.
    7. 7
      Repeat steps 3 through 7 until you run out of ingredients.
    8. 8
      When you're ready to serve, cut the long rolls into small, round pinwheels. I was able to get 8 good pinwheels per long roll (the endpieces are fine to nibble on but they don't make a pretty presentation). If you freeze the rolls for a little while rather than refrigerate them, it makes cutting easier and presentation nicer. I didn't freeze the ones in my picture, so they were messy and misshapen but still very yummy! ENJOY!

      These COULD have been good... I made them the night before my event and they got soggy... Yuck. Some people still said they were okay, but I couldn't get past the texture. If I ever make them again, I will definitely make them no more than a few hours before the event. Overnight is just too long.

      These were so good! I made a quarter batch to try them out before my sister's baby shower, and we gobbled them up for lunch. I liked the suggestion of the Azteca tortillas--they're thinner than my usual tortilla, so they worked really well with the ham and cheese filling. I have to admit, I didn't stir out *all* the lumps (there were some small ones that I just couldn't get), and it seemed to work just fine. I will make these for her shower, but will probably make half ham, and the other half turkey. Thanks Mystia!

      Made these for a Christmas party and they were good, but not great. I added 1/4 cup of chopped green onions to add some color. I like the addition of the sour cream and ranch, but (paired with ham) these ended up a little salty for my taste. I would either half the amount of ranch/sour cream or increase the amount of cream cheese. Adding more cream cheese might help firm up the sandwiches as well. Perhaps a little bit of romaine lettuce would be good as well to add some crunch and texture. (I took the suggestion to put them in the freezer for a while before slicing and that was very helpful.)
