Tortilla Rolls with Fresh Cheese and Garlic Recipe

Flour tortilla rolls with fresh cheese, dill and garlic will pair perfectly with beer as a snack. Or an appetizer, or both.

You can prepare them in advance and slice right before serving, just allow them to sit in fridge for at least 30 mins before serving, so tortillas can soak moisture a bit.

At home we made these with lavash bread, but it is a bit hard to find here, so I used ready to go flour tortillas and it worked good too.

As for the cheese you can use any fresh cheese which can be easily crumbled to your taste: fresh white cheese (quark), feta or queso fresco.

  7. Arrange one flour tortilla on a plate (don’t warm it up, or it may not fold); spread an even layer of stuffing on top of it (again, I used fork here); don’t put too much or it will be harder to fold, about 2-3 tortilla size thick:
