Ingredients

**1/4 cup of jarred roasted bell peppers approximately 300mg of sodium. Try to roast fresh peppers at home if possible.*

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese and chili garlic sauce to taste. Stir to mix well.
  2. Place the tortilla on a cutting board. Spread the cheese mixture evenly over about two-thirds of the tortilla to the edges. Top the cream cheese mixture with the pepper strips, basil, and roast beef.
  3. Starting at the filled end, roll the tortilla tightly into a tube, being careful not to tear it.
  4. Space 8 toothpicks evenly across it and poke them into the tube so they go through and touch the cutting board. With a sharp knife, cut between the tortilla to make 8 pieces.
  5. Take one piece and push the toothpick through so that the roll is evenly spaced in the center. Repeat with the remaining pieces. Arrange, spiral side up, on a serving plate.
  6. Serve your roast beef immediately or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 6 hours.
