  • 2 (2 1/4 ounce) cans sliced ripe olives, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted red pepper, divided
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 16 slices deli roast beef


  1. Reserve 48 olive slices, 48 pieces red pepper and 1 tablespoon cream cheese.
  2. Chop remaining olives.
  3. Combine remaining cream cheese, olives, red pepper and garlic in small bowl; mix well.
  4. Spread about 2 tablespoons cream cheese mixture on each tortilla. Top each tortilla with 2 beef slices, overlapping slightly. Roll up tortillas, jelly-roll fashion. Trim off uneven ends of each tortilla; discard. Slice each tortilla roll into 6 (3/4-inch) pieces.
