Place tortilla on a flat, clean surface
Spread a thick layer of cream cheese mixture over entire tortilla, leaving about 1/4 " exposed on edges.
Gently roll up tortilla and press down lightly to seal edge with filling.
Repeat with remaining tortillas.
Wrap rolled tortillas in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 - 8 hours before serving.
When ready to serve, remove plastic and slice into 1/4" round pinwheels.
Pinwheels may be served cold, as-is or they can be heated by placing on a non-stick metal baking pan under a broiler for about one minute. Watch carefully while broiling so that they don't burn. Remove from oven and serve hot.
🥕This recipe yields approximately two dozen 1/2" thick pinwheels. Increase your ingredients as needed for the number of guests you're serving. Chances are you'll likely have extra tortillas since this recipe only requires 3 tortillas for 24 pinwheels. 🥕Keep it colorful! Make your fiesta pinwheels extra festive by using a combination of plain, spinach and sun-dried tomato tortillas along with bright red, orange, yellow and green peppers.
