A friend gave me this recipe, and whenever I serve these pretty and delicious appetizers, people ask me for the recipe, too! Besides being attractive and tasty, the pinwheels can be made ahead of time and sliced just before serving, leaving you time for other last-minute party preparations. —Pat Waymire, Yellow Springs, Ohio

MY REVIEW

"Have been making these for years only difference is I use a package of Hidden Valley ranch dressing mixed in with my cheese mix instead of the salt and garlic . Also chopped jalapeno peppers in place of green chillies . Do not forget to drain canned ingredients . If you make them you should have enough for more than five . I get eight at least and do not wrap them , i just put them in an air tight container over night and cut"

"I love these...I also do the cream cheese and sour cream but add sliced ham, swiss cheese, black olives, chives and garlic powder to taste"

"Made these yesterday and let them sit in fridge overnight to meld the flavors. So, today I sliced one and tried it...yuck! tortilla was soggy, and sour cream is overpowering. I tried baking a few, 350 oven, for 10 minutes. Definite improvement, but still soggy inside."
