Tortilla Things

My mom always made these for parties when we were growing up and everyone loved them. The silly name is what we called them- but I'm sure they have a much more technical name somewhere.

3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
10 green onions, diced (use the tops too)
1 (16 ounce) carton sour cream
3 T picante sauce
juice of one lime
4-8 seeded jalapeno peppers (or more depending upon taste)
2 (20 count) packages flour tortillas

Mix first 6 ingredients together in food processor. Unless you have a REALLY large food processor, do this in two batches. Spread on flour tortillas and roll up. Wrap tightly in saran wrap and then in foil and refrigerate overnight. Cut each roll into pinwheels or 2-3 pieces and serve with additional picante sauce.

TIP OF THE DAY: This makes so many that I almost always half it. My mom always made the whole batch and would freeze some in large Ziploc freezer bags.
