Whether you're looking for the perfect potluck pleaser or just want to inject a little more Mexican flavor into your meal, these Mexican Pinwheels will surely do the trick!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped scallions
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained
  • 1 (2-1/4-ounce) can sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
What To Do:
  1. Beat cream cheese and sour cream in a large bowl at medium speed of an electric beater until smooth. Stir in Cheddar cheese and next 5 ingredients.
     
  2. Spread cheese mixture evenly over each tortilla; roll up tortillas. Wrap each separately in plastic wrap. Chill up to 8 hours.
     
  3. To serve, remove plastic wrap, and cut each roll into 8 slices. Secure pinwheels with wooden toothpicks, if desired.
Notes
  • It's easy to cut the fat and calories in this family-favorite snack. Use fat-free cream cheese and fat-free sour cream in place of their regular counterparts, and substitute an equal amount of reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese for regular sharp Cheddar cheese.

Looks good!! How much does serve?

Hello. This recipe makes 64 pinwheels. Enjoy!

These little goodies are a delight

My sister brought these pinwheels to a baby shower and they were very well received to the point that all 128 vanished in minutes. Great recipe.

My sister in-law brought these to my home for a family gathering and they were a big hit! I'm making them for card club this weekend.
