I wanted to use Red Gold Mexican Fiesta diced tomatoes with cilantro and lime in a yummy, fun finger food...and it had to be something quick and easy to boot! I combined cream cheese, the tomatoes, spices, cheese, and jalapeno...then spread the mixture on spinach tortillas/wraps, rolled up, and sliced. The entire dish comes together in less than 15 minutes a few hours before your party. I found that hanging out in the fridge for a bit not only lets the flavors combine well, but it also makes for much easier slicing when you're ready to serve.

Step 2: Stir well to combine...if your cream cheese is soft enough, a sturdy spoon works great! Spread 1/3 of the mixture onto three spinach tortillas/wraps. Roll up tightly and place on a plate. Cover and put in the fridge for at least 3 hours...overnight is best if you have the time.
These little bites are really good...they're creamy and a bit spicy thanks to the cilantro and jalapeno! The lime in the tomatoes plus the added lime juice give it a bright flavor boost as well. As an added bonus, these are good to have on hand for any vegetarians who might be attending your party. The red and green color scheme also makes this appetizer holiday-friendly to boot. To shave a bit of fat and calories, feel free to sub in low-fat cream cheese and co-jack.
