Will save this recipe for when we have leftover taco meat. I'm thinking it would be good too with leftover rotisserie chicken 




TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling

YIELD: 3 dozen pinwheels.

These pinwheels come together quickly when you start with leftover taco meat. They make an appealing party appetizer served with salsa, or a fun lunch option with a salad on the side.


  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup seasoned taco meat
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons chopped ripe olives
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 5 flour tortillas (8 inches), room temperature
  • 1/2 cup shredded lettuce
  • Additional salsa


  • 1. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Stir in the taco meat, cheese, salsa, mayonnaise, olives and onion. Spread over tortillas. Sprinkle with lettuce; roll up tightly. Wrap securely and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • 2. Unwrap and cut into 1-in. pieces. Serve with additional salsa.
