Mexican Pinwheels

1The red, green and black colors of the ingredients make these pinwheels very attractive. They are also very tasty and simple to prepare.


  • 2 - 8 oz pkgs cream cheese, softened
  • 1 small jar pimientos, drained
  • 1 can pitted black olives
  • 4 green onions, white and green part
  • 1/3 cup salsa
  • 6-8 flour tortillas, medium size


  1. Chop pimientos, olives and green onions and place in medium sized mixing bowl.
  2. Add softened cream cheese to the bowl.
  3. Gently combine all ingredients.
  4. Spread some mixture on 1 tortilla to cover evenly.
  5. Roll the tortilla and cover with plastic wrap. Repeat process for remaining 5-7 tortilla shells.
  6. Refrigerate at least 1 hour so the cream cheese mixture will "set up" again.
  7. After an hour or two, slice tortillas in 1/2" intervals. The ends will be scraps...for taste testing if desired!


- None.


- You can also prepare these the day before and slice when ready to serve.
