  • 8 oz cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • 1/2 red bell pepper chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper chopped
  • 3 large tortillas I used ancient grain whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded


  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl add cream cheese, bread crumbs and hot sauce. Mix with a fork until cream cheese has softened. Add the peppers and mix them in well with the cream cheese.
  • Spread the cream cheese mixture over each tortilla, 1/3 of the mixture for each tortilla, and sprinkle 1/3 of the cheddar cheese on each tortilla. Roll up the tortillas and cut them into 1 inch slices.
  • Place the slices on the baking sheet.
  • Bake at 350 F degrees for 10 minutes, then for another 3 minutes under the broiler.
  • Serve with salsa or sour cream.


I used whole wheat tortillas for this recipe. You can use any type of tortilla you prefer.
I used Frank's Red Hot Sauce for this recipe. You can use any type of hot sauce you prefer, or eliminate it entirely if you don't like spice. Feel free to add extra hot sauce if you like.
