Culturas Cuisine: San Pedro Peanut Butter Roll-ups 

Sophia Ungaro, a Culturas team member, from San Pedro, California, brings us her recipe for San Pedro Peanut Butter Roll-ups.


Thank you for sharing your recipe with us! Can you tell us a little bit more about it? 


I always enjoyed this snack because it combined my Mexican heritage with being American— a cultural crossover that combined my family’s cultural identity with our current position in society. 


What cultural memory is inspired by making San Pedro Peanut Butter Roll-ups? 


My mom is the queen of combining her heritage into our everyday meals. Everything she makes is filled with love. After school, we’d run into the house before heading off to dance. My three sisters and I would swarm like flies around the counter, waiting to see what snack my mom had for us that day. 


Let’s break it down. How do you make this tasty snack?


Today I am going to share with you my favorite after school snack: Anita’s Famous PB Roll Up:

Step One: Get a tortilla. Any kind will do! In my household, we love Mission Tortillas. 


Step Two: Find your favorite peanut butter! Personally, I love Skippy Natural.

Step Three: Get your best butter knife and spread the peanut butter all over the tortilla. Smother it!

Step Four: (Optional) If you have a sweet tooth or are craving sugar, drizzle a little bit of honey over the peanut butter. 


Step Five: Roll the tortilla up like a taquito!
