Reviews for Fiesta Pinwheels
"I am very happy to have this recipe. I think I had these years ago, but failed to get the recipe then. Just to clarify, is picante sauce the same thing as the salsa you serve it with, or is it something like Cholula or Tobasco?"
"They tasted GREAT!"
"I've made these on several occasions and they are a big hit!"
"I made these for a superbowl party. Everyone loved them!"
"I don't know what else to say but wow! This recipe was so easy to put together to feed a crowd and had great flavor. I will be making these again and for every family gathering I host."
"Simple and easy to put together for a large party. Made quite a bit."
"Good. I omitted the olives."
"This was yummy! I made it exactly as written. To prevent the filling from spilling out, I simply stopped spreading it about 1 inch from one side of the tortilla, then rolled the tortilla toward that end. The filling kind of squished and spread itself into that area as I rolled, and there was no spillage. Uses a very sharp non-serrated knife to cut it. I am also using this as a sandwich spread with avocado for my quick breakfast this morning. Delicious!"
"I have made these sooo often in the last couple of years. They are my favorite thing to take to any gathering, and I have never had any left to bring home. I agree with maureen104 - maybe the reason a person wouldn't like them is NOT the recipe as it was actually submitted, NOT the absence of meat - but perhaps it's because that person totally changed the recipe to something else?!"
"I've been making these for years. They are perfect as is.. I don't understand why anyone would completely change the recipe and then give it on!y 2 stars!"
"this recipe was ok... but there was no sort of meat to tie it all together... I used some cooked deli chicken shredded - no olives and no chilies! added veggie cream cheese (instead of the plain cream cheese) and a dab of mayo - fiesta ranch dry dressing mix (instead of taco seasonings) and added a dab of the picante sauce to bind it all together! i used the same measurements for the ingredients as I have listed - had to tone it down abit - cause I gots to keep my pancreas happy!"
"I only used a little of the olives, I love olives but didn't want that to be the only thing you could taste. It was the perfect amount. Next time I might leave them out altogether."
"These are easy and taste great. I always get compliments."
"I brought these to a party and they cleaned the plate. I will make these again for sure!"
"These were so good. My husband loved them. I also made some without olives. I just don't like those little stinkers. :) Two thumbs up recipe! Will make again and again."
"Always gobbled up - and tastes great!"
"easy to make. I made the filling the night before, wrapped them up in the AM, then just sliced and plated when I got home from work and off to my party. Well received, many people wanted the recipe."
"These taste great, but I lost a lot of filling trying to roll them up. What is the solution for that?"
"What happened to the print size on this recipe???"
"Ripe olives are the black olives."
"I substituted fat free cream cheese and light sour cream. Also I used light Italian and light sun dried tomatoe flat outs wraps in place of flour tortillas. Much healthier and saves calories. For a little extra protein I made one with finely shredded chicken. Put all ingredients in food processor and spread on wrap."
"Do you use green or black olives? Shouldn't matter, but if they're that good I want to do it right."
"Loved these! They're really good and simple to make!"
"I make these every year for my Christmas Party and they are always a hit!"
"Yummy. Can also add chicken or ham, BBQ, pineapple and omit salsa and taco. Terriff"
"Really good and easy to make! Accidentally bought 8 inch tortillas and filled with 1/3 cup filling per tortilla and it worked great. Will definitely make again!"
"Everyone really liked these."
"Everyone loved this when I took it to a New Year's Eve party."
"These are very good and easy to make! I only got 6 tortillas though and not 8 following the instructions to spread 1/2 cup on each tortilla. The only thing I changed was I used jalapeno cheddar tortillas instead of plain flour tortillas. This added very good flavor. Will make again."
"Very good - not one left when I served them!!!!"
"I made this Christmas Eve to take to a party on Christmas Day. I used red & green flour tortillas to add color to my platter. It looked beautiful. But more importantly, it was a huge hit! Although the recipe made quite a bit, I should have made a double batch as they went so fast!!! This is definitely a keeper!"
"Very good appetizer. easy to prepare and store well in the refrigerator."
"I have made these for our" Family Christmas Day Appetizer Blow Out" in 2008 and 2009. I have been asked to bring them again this year, 2010. They are a HIT and the first thing to disappear."
"this is one of the best I ever made, everyone ask for the recipe"
"These are great, and easy and inexpensive to make. They are good without the salsa, but better with it."
"I've been making these for years now,they are a great appetizer for Xmas, also, I make these in the summer for the girls at work or at a party. They are a big hit.Pat Simons"
"These are VERY good and have lots of flavor. Rolling them is a pain and ocourse, when you slice them there is waste on either end. All in all, worth the effort for a party."
"I have made this recipe several times, and each time I have been asked for the recipe..they are excellent for any occasion..Pat Siegfried"
