Great tasting and easy to make. Buy an assortment of deli ham, turkey, and roast beef and make each roll up different if you like. Cook time is actually time spent for refrigeration.

I wanted a tasty cold appetizer and this really filled the bill. I used spinach torillas and thin sliced smoked turkey - perfecr. Followed the recipe in all other respects. Use the 3/4 cup suggested amount for each 10" tortilla. I decorated each cut spiral with a small piece of pickled hot pepper - Thank you Joann great recipe

These are a wonderful make-ahead appetizer! I used black olives, and bought turkey,roast beef, and Virgina baked ham, and made a variety of combinations. My whole family agreed that this is the best pinwheel recipe we have tried so far!! Thank you for a definite keeper!!:) ~Manda

These were very tasty. I have tried many recipes for these, but always found the flavor lacking. Not these. I did omit the celery (personal preference) and used deli thin smoked ham for the meat. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is there wasn't a step that states to put on the meat and how thick. I used one thin layer and in my opinion that was too thin. I think next time I will double that. Thanks JoAnn for sharing your recipe.
