Yet Another Mexican Pinwheel Recipe!

It's my own variation on the Mexican Pinwheel theme. I just made it up for this past New Year's Eve and it was a big hit!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the cream cheese and taco seasoning together. I don't use the entire can of Rotel tomatoes or Refried beans. About 4 tablespoons of each into the mixture. But you can adjust to your taste.
  2. Evenly divide the mixture between the tortillas and then roll them up tightly. Cover with saran wrap and chill in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.
  3. Then cut them up into slices discarding (or eating!) the ends. Very easy but very good with a kick!
  4. The great thing is that you can mix in your own favorites into the recipe. Black olives, pimentos, etc.

This recipe has the potential to be a real winner; however, my family found these way too salty. Because of that, I would recommend cutting the taco seasoning in half. Adding a few other tidbits, like green onions and sliced black olives to give it more body, would be a plus. Made for PAC, Spring 2009. Thanks for posting Susan. (-:

I made this for an office potluck today, and was very happy with the results! I used some small tortillas and some larger ones, and I doubled the filling recipe too. The filling is soooo good! I think it would be good as a dip with crackers or vegetables too. I will definitely make this again! Thank you!
