  • 1 (8 ounce) block cream cheese softened
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • cup salsa any kind
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar Jack cheese
  • ½ red bell pepper diced
  • ½ green bell pepper diced
  • 5-6 large flour tortillas (I used burrito-sized ones)


  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sour cream, salsa, and taco seasoning with an electric hand mixer until smooth.
  • Stir in cheese and peppers until well combined.
  • Spread about ¼ cup of mixture evenly onto a tortilla. Roll tightly and then cover with plastic wrap. Repeat the same process with each tortilla.
  • Refrigerate tortillas for at least 45 minutes, or overnight, for maximum flavor.
  • When ready to serve, slice each tortilla into 1-inch pieces. Serve with additional salsa, guacamole, or sour cream for dipping.
