Step 1: Ingredients

Thinly sliced Ham

1 large can Crushed Pineapple, drained

8 ounces Cream Cheese

5 or 6 Large Flour Tortillas

Step 2: Cream Cheese

Allow the cream cheese to set out of the refrigerator for about an hour so it will be easier to spread.

Spread a thin layer of cream Cheese on a flour tortilla.

1 package of cream cheese (8 ounce) is enough for 5 or 6 large tortillas.

Step 3: Pineapple

Open can and drain the pineapple very well, you'll want to remove as much juice as possible to prevent the roll-ups from getting soggy. Spoon the crushed pineapple on top of the cream cheese and spread.

Step 4: Sliced Ham

Remove thinly sliced ham from package. Blot each slice with paper towel to remove excess moisture. Layer a few slices of Ham over the pineapple.

Step 5: Roll and Slice

Roll up the tortilla and cover in plastic wrap. Place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour before cutting.

Remove plastic wrap and slice in 1" pieces with a serrated knife.

Place on serving plate. Cover with plastic wrap and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
