Smoked Trout, Avocado and Cheese Tortilla Slices

These are great appetizers to serve at a dinner party. Smoked trout is usually available in the fish section of your supermarket. If it’s unavailable, use smoked salmon or another smoked fish.

1. Beat the ricotta, cream cheese, mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard and pepper together in a food processor, or in a bowl using an electric mixer, until smooth. Stir in the dill.

2. Divide and spread the mixture evenly over the 4 tortillas. Sprinkle each one evenly with spinach, avocado, red pepper, onion and trout. Roll up tightly.
