    This sounds really good. I think I will make some up using cinnomom and splenda to the light cream cheese and spread on the flour tortillas and pop in the microwave or oven to make a low cal cinnomon bun. Thanks for the basic idea. - 2/8/09

    I used La Tortilla low carb tortilla (50 cals), Laughing Cow light (35 cals) and pace salsa (20 cals). This is the perfect little snack in between meals, and easy to make for 1 person! - 1/25/10
