Super Bowl Recipepalooza #5: Mexican Pinwheels
I’ve been making this snack since I was a little girl. It’s super easy, and fun…for adults and kids! These are a great alternative to tortilla chips and salsa. They’re vegetarian and super easy to munch on while you watch the game.
* This recipes needs to be made a day in advance. Ingredients:
4 large flour tortillas
1 8-ounce package cream cheese
3/4 cup shredded cheese – Tillamook Cheddar Cheese or Pepper Jack Cheese (or both!)
6 oz can black olives, chopped
1 small bunch chopped green onions
1 package taco seasoning
4 oz can green chilis
Take cream cheese out of fridge and let come to room temperature. With a spoon, mix cream cheese and taco seasoning (I use half a packet of seasoning but you can season to taste). With a spatula spread cream cheese mixture across each of the six tortillas. Evenly sprinkle cheese, olives, green onions and chilis on top of each tortilla. Starting at one end, roll the tortilla into a tube, as tightly as possible. Wrap a piece of plastic wrap or foil around the roll up. Place roll ups into the fridge overnight. When ready to service, unwrap and slice into 1/2-1″ pinwheels. Enjoy!
