One of my favorite appetizers as well as my son, Jonathan’s favorite!  If desired, use a few chopped, canned jalapenos instead of green chilies.  A party favorite and so easy!

Olive oil
8 oz light cream cheese, softened (250 g)
4.5 oz can chopped green chilies, drained (128 g)
1/2 cup grated Cheddar Cheese, (125 mL)
1/3 cup chopped green onions (75 mL)
1/2 tsp crushed garlic (2 mL)
  (the bottled kind)

In nonstick skillet in a small amount of olive oil, fry the tortillas briefly on both sides.  They will still be flexible, however, the flavor will be enhanced.  This is not necessary if your tortillas taste great.
In medium bowl, combine softened cream cheese, green chilies, grated Cheddar cheese, finely chopped green onions and garlic.  Cover each tortilla with cream cheese spread. Roll up each tortilla.  Place tortillas on serving plate and cover with plastic wrap.  Refrigerate 2 hours or more.  Slice into narrow pieces. 

Helpful Hints:  The carbs may be higher with the gluten-free tortillas (available on Amazon). My wraps are not gluten-free, and they are 3 g net carbs; Mama Lupe's.  It is most common to serve these chilled, however, I have found that warming them in the microwave oven briefly makes them taste even more delicious!
