      I really enjoyed these! We actually had them for dinner, not as an appetizer. It was a bit rich for a dinner, but really tasty!

      I have to say that I was really excited to make these but kind of disappointed with the results. I followed the recipe to the letter (aside from shredding the spinach) and I found it to be way too lemony for my taste. I was also hoping that the avocado flavor would come through. I think if I make these again, I'll cut back on the lemon juice.

      This was a pretty easy recipe to make and was a hit at my cocktail party. The trick is to roll the wraps very tight. If not you won't be able to cut them nicely. Don't just roll them up or you will squish the contents out. You need to lift the part you're rolling and drag it back until its tight. I doubled up the tortillas too, one spinach and one red pepper large sandwich wrap. Made for a colorful display and allowed me to make the wraps tighter.
