Roasted Red Pepper and Ricotta Cheese Tortillas

P3147828

These tortillas are wonderful for these cold winter days. They’re tasty  and comforting, filled with lots and lots of cheese! I There is ricotta and swiss in these, which makes for a nice combination. I love the red peppers because they are a great way to jazz up any sandwich or tortilla. I used the roasted red peppers in a jar from trader joe’s, but I suppose you could roast them yourself if you had some time. I used ham and swiss cheese, but really you can use whatever cold cuts you have in your fridge – I’ve made these tortillas with turkey before, and they were just as good!

Ingredients (for five tortillas)

5 flour tortillas

1/2 cup of salsa (Use the mild or spicy kind depending on what you prefer)

1/2 cup of ricotta cheese

5 slices of ham

1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese

1 jar of roasted red peppers

Sour Cream, salsa, and black bean dip for garnish

Directions

In a bowl, mix together the salsa and ricotta cheese.

On each flat tortilla, spread about 1/5 of the ricotta/salsa mixture. I would recommend to not put it too close to the edge, because it tends to ooze out and cause a mess when you roll them.

Then add a slice of ham to each tortilla. Sprinkle with the shredded cheese and add 1-2 slices of red pepper to each.

Roll the tortillas up and place them in a dish next to each other. I have found that folding the edges of the tortilla in helps keep it compact in the oven and prevents the ingredients from falling out.

Put the dish in the oven at 375 degrees F, and cook for about 15 minutes.

When the tortillas are cooked, garnish them with salsa, sour cream, and black bean dip.
