What you need: Makes 4 wraps that can be cut into about 20 bites

1-8oz pack of ready spinach artichoke dip or make from scratch

1 cup sour cream

4 large tortillas

2 cups of colored peppers, diced

1/2 cup of fresh cilantro finely chopped

For the artichoke dip:

1 cup fresh spinach diced

1 cup fresh artichoke hearts finely chopped

1/2 cup cream cheese

1/4 cup sour cream

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

2 fresh garlic cloves crushed

1/4 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp salt

To make the dip:

Boil spinach and artichokes in 2 cups of water and a 1/4 tsp salt. When they are tender, drain them and discard the liquid. Heat cream cheese in microwave for 1 minute or until hot and soft. Add the cooked spinach, artichokes and the rest of ingredients in a food processor along with the cream cheese. Give it two or three quick pulses. You dip is ready to spread.

The wraps take very little prep time and make great vegetarian appetizers.

Cook your tortilla on a heated skillet and let them cool down. Lay a tortilla on a plate or board. Spread a spoonful of sour cream onto the tortilla.

Then a dollop of yummy spinach artichoke dip.

Sprinkle the diced colored peppers and cilantro. Roll them down snug from one end to the other, not too tight but firm enough to retain shape. Cut them into desired thickness and serve along with some more dip on the side. Enjoy!
