Appetizer Tortilla Pinwheels

Perusing recipes for Memorial Day weekend appetizers.


Appetizer Tortilla Pinwheels


Prep: 20 min. + chilling
YIELD: about 4 dozen.
The cream cheese pinwheels can be made ahead of time and sliced just before serving, leaving you time for other last-minute party preparations


  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 can (4-1/4 ounces) chopped ripe olives
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles, well drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Seasoned salt to taste
  • 5 flour tortillas (10 inches)
  • Salsa, optional


  • 1. Beat cream cheese, cheese and sour cream until blended. Stir in olives, green chiles, green onions and seasonings.
  • 2. Spread over tortillas; roll up tightly. Wrap each in plastic, twisting ends to seal; refrigerate several hours.
  • 3. Unwrap. Cut into 1/2- to 3/4-in. slices, using a serrated knife. If desired, serve with salsa.

Re: Appetizer Tortilla Pinwheels

That is a tasty appetizer.  Someone once brought them to a work celebration and everyone liked them. Another favorite at work was beer dip with pretzels.
