Recipe: Tortilla Pinwheels

These pinwheels are an appetizer my family makes for just about every get together. It makes enough for a group or a very hungry Momma.  They are easy and quick to make and really quite tasty!

Tortilla Pinwheels

2 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese, softened
1 Ranch Dressing Packet (or make your own!)
4 oz jar of dices pimentos, drained
4 oz can diced green chiles, drained
Black olives, drained and diced or sliced - I usually use the whole can cause I like olives!
1 package tortillas

I like to lay the pimentos and chiles out on a paper towel to soak up some of the juice.  
Mix together the cream cheeses and ranch packet.

Spread the flavored cream cheese all over the tortilla.  Sprinkle with a little bit of the rest of the ingredients.

Roll up like a taco.

Let sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Slice into pinwheels.

Eat up all the end pieces that don't make an actual pinwheel. *optional but recommended*

  5. I love pinwheels! How funny - I just drafted a post on some spinach and smoked salmon rollups I made for my daughter this week. It's a quick and easy treat.
