Crab Tortilla Rolls

Crab Tortilla Rolls
(makes approx. 2 dozen cut rounds)

2 pkgs imitation crab meat                           2 (8 oz) pkgs cream cheese                     2 - 4 Tbsp mild salsa
1 pkg large flour tortillas (el grande) -- may use spinach or other color wraps


Cut crab up; shred into a large bowl.  Add softened cream cheese; mix.  Then add 2 to 4 tablespoons of the mild salsa to make the mixture spreadable (meaning, do not use too chunky a salsa).  Mix well.  Spread onto tortilla; roll tortilla up and then wrap each rolled tortilla separately with plastic wrap.  Usually makes 8 to 10 large tortillas.  Refrigerate overnight.  When ready to serve, remove plastic wrap and cut each tortilla roll into 1-inch pieces (discard the ends that lack enough filling).

Great to make ahead of time and keep on hand during the holidays for drop-in guests.

NOTE:  These actually taste better using imitation crab rather than real crab (real crab tends to be too fishy tasting for this appetizer however, feel free to experiment maybe using a half and half mixture).
