2 jalapeno chiles, minced

Roasted red bell pepper, cut into four 8-inch strips

with cold water to cool. Squeeze to remove as much moisture as possible. In food

until smooth. Add spinach and process until just blended. Place 1 tortilla on
Spread ¼ of spinach mixture over tortilla, leaving ½-inch border on one side.
Place strips of roasted pepper, piecing together if necessary across middle of
tortilla. Roll tortilla toward border, making sure it is tightly rolled but
easing pressure to avoid forcing out filling.
