For a colorful twist, use flavored tortillas. Green spinach tortillas and roasted red bell pepper tortillas make a great Christmas color combination. This recipe is wide open for improvisation. From David Bulla's article on party appetizers.
Mix in the cooked shrimp and pico de gallo. (Pico de gallo is simply diced ripe tomatoes, sweet red onions, fresh jalapeño peppers, chopped cilantro and a little bit of lime juice to make a "chutney" type salsa. Spread the mixture evenly on the flour tortillas and roll them up tightly. Wrap the roll-ups and chill overnight. When it's party time, slice into half-inch thick slices and arrange fanned out on a platter lined with shredded cabbage or leaf lettuce.
