Fiesta Tortilla Roll Bites

I never thought I would post or much less like to eat a recipe similar to what I am posting today.  This type of recipe never has appealed to me in the past.  I’m not sure why, maybe because I’m more of an “asian flavor” girl.  However, has a lot of “faceless recipes” out there on their site and this happened to be one of them.  Two reasons why this one hit my “make list”.

First of all, I bought these habanero wraps from Trader Joes recently and when I bought them, I truly had no idea what I was going to do with them.  Then, I was looking at some recipes that could be made from allrecipes that had no photos with them and it hit me, why don’t I just try this recipe with the habanero tortillas and take them to work to share instead of cookies?

So, that I did.  I have never seen anything disappear so quickly in my entire life.  Seriously people.  Less than 20 minutes and the plate was empty!  I guess I was very wrong to never make something like this before!  I was even informed (jokingly) to come back today with more.  lol  So, let this be your 5 star rating AR….everyone LOVED them and several asked me what I put in them.  Here we go!
