This recipe came from a co-worker years ago, she brought these in for a birthday. They are absolutely addictive. I am requested to make this all the time and have given it out too many times to count. Enlist some helpers with the spreading and rolling. *Note: I have found that fresh jalapenos can be tricky finding out if they have the right amount of heat. I buy 4-6 peppers, process 3 of them & add them to the cream cheese mixture. If I have the desired heat I stop, if not I add 1 more pepper at a time. I've never had to use more than 6. Hope this helps :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened at room temp (you may use the less fat or fat free)
  • 2 -4 fresh jalapenos, chopped (red and or or green)
  • 14 of a fresh onions, chopped or 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 2 packages carl budding deli roast beef or 2 packages honey ham deli meat, chopped
  • 1 (24 count) package flour tortillas (fajita size you may have leftovers, use for something else)


  1. In a medium sized bowl soften cream cheese to room temperature.
  2. Add to the cream cheese, the jalapenos, deli meat and onion mixing thoroughly.
  3. Spread mixture onto tortillas, then roll them up and then slice.
  4. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

These were VERY good! The reason for only 4 stars is because it made nowhere near 20 tortillas! I used the fajita size as instructed but got only 8 of that size and 3 small taco shells. I didn't spread it on thick, either. In fact, I think it could have been spread on a little thicker. So how you got 20 is beyond me! Everyone at the party loved them so I will definately be making these again but I'll double the recipe for sure. Next time I think I'll play with the recipe and use some of the other reviewers idea's. Thanks Pooh Bear!

One of the appetizers I made for Super Bowl. Only made 2 tortillas and they were gone in a flash. Great flavor and quick to make.

These are wonderful. I have made them several times and everyone always asks for them at parties. Thanks for a great recipe! Update: After making several times, I have added cheddar cheese. I also wrap the meat in slices instead of chopping into the mixture.
