Snack time is a wonderful event in our household. We love to eat healthy, yummy snacks for our “in-between” meals. We experiment with different options, from hummus and peppers, to simple fruit salad, cheese sticks (a.k.a. chopped cheese of our choice), or we make sweet potato chips. We do simple stuff like that, but this is one snack we repeat often: Cucumber Tortillas! Oh they are so good!
A side note before I delve into it. I usually use neufchatel (a low fat cream cheese), and I would have like to use a reduced fat or low fat ranch, BUT we are a little low on groceries of that nature and I had to use what I found in the very back of the fridge 😉 We are in the middle of an ice storm and there is no way on this earth that I am dragging myself and my 10month old out in it!
With that stated, here we go:
What you need is an 8oz box of softened cream cheese, about 3 Tbs of ranch dressing, 1- 1 1/2 Tbs of Dill (I like
fresh dill, but we were out), sliced cucumber, and your choice of tortillas.
Mix the softened cream cheese, ranch, and dill.
Take a spoon and spread a thin layer of the dill mixture all over your tortilla.
Place your cucumber down the center. (I was making this one for my daughter. Usually I leave them as circle slices)
Couldn’t resist! My baby girl LOVES feeling independent while eating. This is an easy snack for her to pick up and chew and a fairly healthy one too. Granted it is not a tidy snack in the least bit, but then again what are bath tubs, vacuum cleaners and mops for anyway?
Here is how we adults eat ours =) Hope you enjoy!
– 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
– 3 Tbs of ranch dressing
– 1 to 1 ½ Tbs of dill (depending on your taste)
– Sliced cucumber
– Tortilla shells
Mix together cream cheese, ranch, and dill. Spoon mixture onto a tortilla and spread a thin layer all over the shell. Lay your cucumber down the center. Fold tortilla. Enjoy!
