A made some variations on this recipe and came out with a great appetizer to contribute to my friend's cocktail party. First, I used green and red tortillas for some color. Then, I made the filling a half cream cheese and half sour cream mixture. Then I alternated filling - black olives for some, canned green chiles for others, and some both together. Sprinkled a little paprika in there too. This worked out well.

I've been making this for a few years now, except instead I use ham, tortillas, cream cheese & salsa. They are a hit whenever I make them.

I have made these for years. They are so good. Always an empty plate to take home. I make mine with cream cheese, grated Colby Jack cheese, small can green chilies, green onions, sliced black olives & sometimes I add ham. You can really put anything you like inside. Experiment & have fun with it.

good, I would add more cream cheese next time. I had to spread it so thin that you could barely tell it was there. These are really great to do if you would like to get ready the night before a party.

Very quick and easy to prepare. Used Alouette brand herbed cream cheese and think this added something. Also try turkey breast with herbed cheese and cranberry sauce (mixed together).

I really enjoyed making these pinwheels and made some with turkey as well as the ham. They are a great cool summertime appetizer that can travel well to picnics. Ability to make it in advance is a plus.

Took a tray of these to a Christmas party and came home with an empty tray. Very tasty and easy. I used green olives with pimentos. The green and red gave them a pretty holiday look.

I made this recipe for Christmas to take to my sister in-laws and they went like hotcakes. I didn't eve get a chance to try one my self they were gone so fast. I received many compliments pn my appietzer selections for the holiday's. The my niece's told me that I could bring them every year. It's nice to bring something different to the holiday's instead of all of the sweet desserts. I am not a big sweet eater so this was a perfect choice for me.
