They're fun, easy and make a quick disappearing act. Refrigerate overnight for easier cutting. They freeze well too and are nice to have on hand for unexpected guests. Times are a guess as are servings. NOTE: I used Monterrey Jack because we prefer it over cheddar.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small mixing bowl beat cream cheese until smooth. Stir in sour cream, salsa, taco seasoning and garlic powder until well blended. Add in the olives, chilies, cheese and scallions.
  2. Spread 1/2 cup cheese mixture on each tortilla. Roll up jelly roll style. Wrap in cling wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours (overnight is best).
  3. Slice in 3/41-in pieces. Secure with toothpick. Serve with additional salsa.
  4. Pinwheels may be prepared ahead of time and frozen. Thaw in refrigerator.

These were very good but you are right they need refrigeration. I made these in the morning after breakfast and were ready for lunch. I loved the fact I could just pull something out that was already made. I will try other additions next time. I like forgiving recipes that I can change. My son loved these and we had fun making them together. I am planning on bringing them to our next play date. Made for ZWT 5.

I took a platter to a Mexican Fiesta themed b-day party and they were all gone by the time I went home. Definitely cut them with a serrated knife. I personally was not overly impressed with the flavor, thought they were just ok. I would make again as a quick and affordable appetizer for a party. I made the following changes; omitted sour cream, added more salsa, used cheddar jalapeno tortilla wraps (6 pk.) 2-8 oz. tubs of cream cheese, (1) chive & onion & (1) jalapeno & cheddar. Added 1 can (drained) tomatoes and green chilies, mixed with hand mixer, then thinly spread onto tortillas, placed sliced black olives, sliced scallion, slices of deli ham & turkey, also added mashed black beans to a couple. Rolled them up and refrigerated for 2 hours minimum.

These were yummy! I used all low fat ingredients and multi-grain tortillas. I mixed everything in my food processor and think next time I will just hand mix them in a bowl as it made them not as pretty. Oh well - they still tasted great - thanks for sharing!
