More appetizer ideas!

Here are a few more appetizer ideas!

Tortilla wraps! Spread a tortilla with cream cheese or a salad dressing, add mean and chopped veggies and roll up. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a few hours, then remove from the plastic wrap and slice in 1 inch slices. You can use a toothpick to keep it rolled if need be. Here are some ideas:
Chicken Caesar wrap: Caesar dressing mixed with a bit of cream cheese, stir in chopped red pepper and chopped black olives. Spread on the tortilla, layer with a loose lettuce leaf and canned chicken.
Pizza wrap: Cream cheese spread with pizza sauce, add chopped pepperoni or ham and some cheese. Other options include chopped mushrooms or black olives.
Veggie wrap: Cream cheese mixed with chopped black olive, green onion, pimento, wrapped around a carrot stick or green pepper slice. Add cheese if desired.

Here's one I LOVE during the fall/winter holidays!

Cranberry Cream Cheese Spread:
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. sour cream
2 Tbsp. honey
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 15 oz. can whole berry cranberry sauce
1/3 c. slivered almonds (optional)

Mix the first 4 ingredients until smooth. Spread evenly on a plate or serving dish. Stir cranberry sauce until it spreads easily; top cream cheese mixture with cranberry sauce. Sprinkle with almonds if desired and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours before serving with crackers.
