This is a good base recipe. I used a few of these ingredients and a few of my own because I don't have some of them. I used cream cheese, sour cream, tortillas, garlic powder because i had no ranch powder, chives, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, turkey, and ham. I made some using turkey and the other ham. They are a huge hit at Christmas parties. They are gone in like 5 minutes if that. The garlic powder you have to go on taste because you can put too much in. I have used ranch powder once. Overkill. You use like half of what it calls for. Most recipes you find you have to put your own twist on it. You might have different tastes than others. Some like the saltiness and others like myself dont. To each their own.
This is one of the easiest, and most popular finger foods you can bring to the party. And like one reviewer stated, you can easily change it up. I use sliced peppered turkey from the deli and since I'm not a fan of ranch, I use taco seasoning in the cream cheese. I recommend adding some kind of seasoning or it will be bland. You can even add spinach or romaine leaves for a little crunch. And don't forget there are spinach and tomato tortillas that will add flavor and color to the plate. Love this recipe!!
