I’ve made these for years. The only thing I do differently, is to cook up some bacon and then chop it up and add it to the mixture. Super yummy!

(Note to Editor: I submitted this review the other day and the end was cut off. If you can't use the brand name Wheat Thins, can you at least change it to "wheat crackers", instead of just cutting it off?) I have made these for years, but I don't use chilies or seasoning. I also discovered that just the filling makes a delicious dip! I serve it with Sundried Tomato wheat crackers.

These are fabulous! I also made a version with smoked salmon and added Mexican taco spices. Fantastic, thanks so much Pat Waymire!

I haven’t made these yet, but I plan to for Super Bowl Sunday. I am going to make up the next year on Saturday and then spread out on the tortillas early Sunday. Hopefully that will prevent any possibility of tortillas getting soggy. I am going to leave out the olives and the peppers, at least the seeds. I think I’m going to try that taco powder in them or one of the other suggestions you people have made. They just sound delicious.

Don't know how these can ever become soggy. I made these yesterday morning and they are exactly as I made them. Still no where approaching soggy. My take on these is I added some fresh cilantro and a bit of Sriracha for a kick. As an option, you could always layer some shaved ham on tortillas. Definitely a keeper recipe.

I have a recipe for pinwheel only a little different. Same amt cream cheese, shredded cheese, sour cream, green onions and Chile's or black olives if you would like. The thing you add to this mixture is a packet of the Oriental Seasoning pack from a Ramen Noodle package. You can also add a little soy sauce but not much so it makes it runny. Then put mixture in tortillas. I have also added canned chicken to it also. Very good.
