Gourmet Roast Beef Rollups


  • 1 tablespoon fat-free cream cheese
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
  • 1 whole-wheat flour, 96% fat-free tortilla (8" diameter)
  • Scant 1/4 cup roasted red bell pepper strips
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shaved Rosemary-Grilled London Broil or lean, low-sodium deli roast beef

In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese and chili garlic sauce to taste. Stir to mix well. Place the tortilla on a cutting board. Spread the cheese mixture evenly over about two-thirds of the tortilla to the edges. Top the cream cheese mixture with the pepper strips, basil, and roast beef. Starting at the filled end, roll the tortilla tightly into a tube, being careful not to tear it.

Space 8 toothpicks evenly across it and poke them into the tube so they go through and touch the cutting board. With a sharp knife, cut between the picks to make 8 pieces. Take one piece and push the toothpick through so that the roll is evenly spaced in the center. Repeat with the remaining pieces. Arrange, spiral side up, on a serving plate. Serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 6 hours.

Just 1/4 cup of most jarred roasted bell pepper strips has about 300 milligrams of sodium, so it is best to roast fresh peppers yourself if at all possible.
