Veggie Wraps with Olive Spread

This is an easy and yummy lunch option and one of our favorites!

Mix about 1/2 cup (or more) black olives with an 8 oz. block of cream cheese. (Sliced olives blend better than whole olives.)  Spread on tortillas or flatbread. Add your choice of chopped veggies and roll up and eat!

Some of our favorite veggies for this are:

  • grated carrots
  • chopped red onion
  • chopped tomatoes
  • chopped green pepper
  • chopped cucumber
These can get a little messy if filled really full, so if we're taking these on the road, I'll usually just add grated carrots and then eat some cut-up veggies on the side.

I'm sure you could omit the olives should you care to and use plain or flavored cream cheese or even add other veggies to the filling. Shredded cheddar cheese or even meat could also be added. 

The sky's the limit!
