The flavors in this recipe are perfect…  creamy cream cheese, salty feta and sweet dried cranberries.  You can use green onions in place of the chives, I personally like the chives as they have a milder flavor.

While I’ve used white flour tortillas in this recipe, you can certainly use red (tomato) and green (spinach) tortillas to make them festive and add even more color!

The filling can be mixed by hand but I find using a mixer to beat the cream cheese makes it light and fluffy (and much easier to spread).  If you find your cream cheese hard to spread, just add in about 1/4 cup of sour cream.

Be sure to divide the mixture between 4 large tortillas so there isn’t too much filling.  Leaving a 1/2″ border helps to ensure the filling doesn’t overflow. When rolling, you’ll want to roll them as tightly as you can and then wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours before cutting and serving.

The feta mixture can be difficult to spread.  I’ve found that the back of a metal spoon works the best.
