Have you ever thought about making your own pinwheels? I can honestly say I haven't...until now. Pinwheel cream cheese treats are an excellent choice for a snack that's light and filling.
Friend Jody Davis shared this recipe with my Aunt Marge, Mom, and Uncle Danny. Jody and Danny are married and live in Florida. Another reason why my mind is on 'Florida, Florida, Florida.'
The crew got together for some family time and Jody brought the pinwheels. Everyone fell in love with the flavor, the ease of making the dish, and the idea of taking almost anything you love and adding it to a cream cheese base.
For this particular recipe you'll need the following:
8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Four green onions, chopped
Bunch of cilantro, chopped
1/2 chopped red pepper
1/2 chopped yellow pepper
Small can of chopped black olives, drained
2 ounces of green chilis (optional)
6 large burrito size (gluten free) tortillas...of course, regular flour tortillas will do
Mix all ingredients, spread equal portions of the cream cheese mixture on all of the burritos. Roll up. Wrap in saran wrap. Chill for an hour. Cut into bite size pieces...in the shape of a pinwheel. Serve. If you want to use any dipping sauce, try your favorite salsa. Add some fresh cilantro and green onions for extra flavor.
