Looking for an adorable Halloween appetizer? Make Eyes of Newt: classic tortilla roll-ups are topped with a bit of cream cheese spread and sliced black olive “eyes” for an easy, spooky bite.
This is a great make-ahead recipe. The filling and roll-ups can be made a day or two before the party. Then all you have to do is slice them and decorate them!
This recipe easily doubles. Don’t skimp on the filling for each tortilla. You want nice, big roll-ups.
