      My mom had a catered party and the caterers brought something very similar. I had to add shredded red cabbage and shredded carrot for added color and crunch, like her caterers did. Use the largest tortillas you can find, I prefer the flour ones, but the others would add more color. If you need heat, add a few finely dices jalepenos. Great recipe, and so easy. Just keep them in refrigerator as long as you can (up to 8 hours) and they are easier to cut.

      See, now spinach like this, I'm happy to eat! It's the cooked stuff that throws me! Anyway, I made these for a group I host each month, & they were SO IMPRESSED (It showed from the way they wolfed these thingies down!), & I definitely must make them again! Used sharp cheddar as well as Pace chunky mild salsa & came together so easily! Thanks for sharing your great recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Potluck Tag game]

      very good! I did make a few changes I added in 1 minced garlic clove and some cayenne pepper to the cream cheese mixture and omitted the cilantro, I also added in 1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix, so good thanks for sharing Dreamer!
