These are a favorite at my husband's office. We love to have them and they get hotter with time. Perfect party food or for a work carry-in.


  1. Any hot peppers will do.
  2. They can either be fresh or dried.
  3. It tastes good both ways.
  4. Soften the cream cheese slightly in the microwave 15-30 seconds.
  5. Mix it all together.
  6. Spread a layer on about 3/4ths of a tortilla.
  7. Cover with a little lettuce.
  8. Roll it up.
  9. Drink some beer to cool your tongue afterlicking the big chunk of pepper off your finger.
  10. Stick them in the fridge for about an hour.
  11. Have a little more beer.
  12. Take them out and cut them into bite size pieces.
  13. Enjoy!

Used these for my 4th of July party. They were a huge hit. They were gone in just minutes. I served with a side of Salsa for dipping. Great Appy for any party!!!

It was great! I made a mild version to take it to our office's St. Patty's get together and it was a success! I combined the lettuce with cilantro, and used green spinach tortillas (because we had to bring green food, of course!)

Well Kimke this is a huge recipe!! I made about a quarter of it. We were looking for something to take to the lake to munch on with wine and beer while we lazed around for the day, these were perfect!! I added just enough heat to make it mandatory to swish some wine or beer, I used cayenne rather than pepper flakes.(Still don't know what you mean by "1 garden salsa pepper", so left it out, it was optional anyway.) I had spinach on hand so we used it, these were just excellent and for any large gathering I will certainly use them as my contribution, very easy to make and I'm sure they would go over big. Thanks for sharing.
