I got this recipe from my mom and it is one of my favorite Appetizers ever!  I’ll make it and then just even eat off it for a couple days for my lunch.  It is seriously delish!  It has such a great presentation, with the green asparagus and red craisins!  Perfect for the Holiday Season and EVERYONE loves it!

4-6 Large Tortilla’s
Large bunch of asparagus (approx 20)
1 Large Can of Chicken (or 2-3 shredded breasts)
1/2 C. Chopped Nuts
1/2 C. Craisins
4 oz of Regular Cream Cheese
1/2 container (or so) of Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese
1/4 cup Mayo
Garlic Powder

Start by getting your asparagus cooking.  Cook it to your preference.  I like mine cooked to be soft, but most like it with a little crunch.

Then chop up your nut of choice! That is if you didn’t buy them pre-chopped.

Then combine the chicken, nuts, craisins, regular cream cheese, garden vegetable cream cheese, mayo and garlic powder and mix by hand or in a mixer.

Once your asparagus is cooked to your liking, drain really good!

Lay out a tortilla and spread your chicken mixture evenly all over it.

It doesn’t have to be perfect, but cover the whole surface.

Then lay a piece of asparagus on the end of the tortilla and start rolling it.

Once the asparagus is enclosed in the roll, stop and add another asparagus.

Repeat and repeat until there is no more tortilla!

It will look like this when it is done being rolled!

Then cover the Asparagus rolls in plastic wrap or Press N Seal!  Place the covered Asparagus Rolls in the fridge for 4-6 hours or overnight.  If you need to, you can put them in the freezer for an hour or so, to speed up the process.

When you remove them from the fridge, unwrap them and cut them up in 1/2″-3/4″ thick (or so) pieces.  The ends will be ugly when you cut them off, so if you’re like me… you just eat them right then and there!  hehe icon smile Asparagus Rolls  My favorite part!

Asparagus Rolls:
4-6 Large Tortillas
Large bunch of asparagus (approx 20)
1 Large Can of Chicken (or 2-3 shredded breasts)
1/2 C. Chopped Nuts
1/2 C. Craisins
4 oz of Regular Cream Cheese
1/2 container (or so) of Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese
1/4 cup Mayo
Garlic Powder

Get your asparagus cooking to preference.  Chop your nut of choice.  Combine the chicken, nuts, Craisins, Reg Cream Cheese, Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese, mayo and garlic powder and mix by hand or in a mixer.  Judge the taste to your preference.  Adjust the amount of Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese and Garlic powder if needed. I 
like mine to have a little bit stronger taste.

Strain the cooked asparagus good.  Spread the chicken mixture evenly on a tortilla.  Place the already cooked asparagus on the edge of the tortilla and roll the tortilla around the asparagus.  Place another asparagus on the tortilla and roll again.  Repeat until the tortilla is all the way rolled.  I usually fit 4-5 asparagus, per tortilla.  Depending on the thickness of the asparagus.  

Cover the rolled tortilla in plastic wrap or Press N’ Seal.  Refrigerate for 3-4 hours or overnight. To speed up the process, you can freeze for the first hour.  Then cut the asparagus rolls into 1/2″ (or so) pieces and ENJOY!
