Assemble appetizer triangles as follows: About 1 inch from the bottom of a laminated phyllo strip, place 1 scant tablespoon prepared filling.
Fold the phyllo over the filling. then roll up like a flag by folding one corner of phyllo diagonally across to opposite edge to form a triangle. Continue to fold onto itself to end of strip.
