These colorful pinwheels are a fast item for an appetizer tray, but they also make a tasty lunch and are very kid friendly. ----This was an entry in RSC #10.

This was my first time making pinwheels of any kind. I thought they turned out very well. I used 'garden spinach herb' tortillas which added a beautiful green color to them. I think that the chicken could be left out, I didn't feel like it did much for the recipe, and then it would be vegetarian as well. I took them to a potluck and got many compliments. I definately recommend making them ahead and wrapping and chilling them, it makes them much easier to slice and gives it time for the flavors to blend. Thanks!
