Cranberry Feta Bites

These tasty treats were the only snack I served on Christmas Eve, aside from the popcorn that my very tired and crabby 2-year old requested.  To be fair, there were only 4 adults and dinner was a 9-pound ham.  We were't going to starve.

This concoction boarders on a "dip" and you all know how I feel about dips!


The process is super simple, and about the hardest thing is slicing the dang tortillas - serrated knife is key here.

  • 16 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 package dried cranberries (1 cup, give or take)
  • 1/2 c green onions, chopped (about 6 stalks, give or take)
  • 1 package crumbled feta cheese (I used Athenos)
  • 4 large burrito-sized tortillas (flour, or any other flavor of your choosing)
Combine all non-tortilla ingredients until fairly evenly mixed.  It's a chunky spread so don't kill yourself over super-even-ness (is that a word?)  Spread only each tortilla, roll and chill, seam-side down for 30 minutes or so.  I wouldn't let this sit too long because the tortilla could get soggy.  

If you were a savvy-spreader, you could trim your tortilla into a square, leaving a perfectly cuttable roll, with no wasteful edges.  But then, you as the chef would have no treats to fuel you as you prepare these yummy treats.  The ends may not be pretty enough to serve, but they sure taste pretty good!
