  • 2 flour tortillas (8 inches wide, or one extra large wrap sized tortilla)
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup tomatoes diced
  • 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 8 large fresh basil leaves
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  • Dice the tomatoes. Stack the basil leaves on top of each other, slice in half lengthwise, and cut into thin strips.
  • Mix together the cream cheese, tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and Parmesan in a small bowl.
  • Spread the mixture across the tortillas in a thin layer.
  • Roll the tortillas tightly into a log. Place the rolled tortillas in the freezer for 10 minutes to set (or refrigerate if making in advance).
  • When ready to serve, remove the tortilla logs from the freezer. Cut off the ends that are hollow and cut the log into 1/2 inch wide rounds. Serve immediately (cold).


You can use any size tortilla(s) you like.  The larger wrap sized tortillas produce less waste from the ends not being full rounds.
