Spread on a tortilla evenly till the edges. Layer the vegetables and meat on one side of the tortilla.
Roll tighty. Wrap with saran wrap and refrigerate. Just before serving cut into 2 inch circles.
These rolls can make with any meat or just vegetarian.

White cake adapted from Cake bible. Frosted with whipped cream and mascarpone. Topped with fresh fruits. Made this for my son's 19th birthday.
1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Place mascarpone, cream cheese, heavy cream, sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl and beat with an electric mixer until cream is thickened and smooth. Place mascarpone mixture in a piping bag with a star tip attached or a plastic bag and cut off one corner of the bag to pipe. I just frosted it with a spatula and added the fruits on top and stored in the refrigerator.
