Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling

These were a huge hit for dinner and an even bigger hit for my kid's lunchboxes the next day!
Super to prepare for a party with finger foods! The recipe says you need 5 tortillas, since I doubled it, I expected to use 10. I only had enough for 6 tortillas. I didn't overload them by any means. The tortilla wasn't covered with meat in single layer. I recommend that if you cook the meat for this recipe that you let it cool before assembling. It is perfect if you want to use leftover taco meat. Mine were not round like the picture but that may have been due to the fact I used warm meat and that softened the cream cheese even more, which made it that the shape wasn't as round when I rolled it up. The fact that it wasn't perfectly round certainly didn't detract from the food.
Love recipes that are easy and oh, so tasty! This one fills both those requirements! Will keep some taco meat on hand so I can make them up quick!
easy to make, used corn tortillas and stacked them. Warmed a little. Tastes great.
When I make a dish, like this, that calls for raw onion, I usually "cook" the onion in a little bit of acid (lemon juice, lime juice, or vinegar). It really takes the bite out of the onion.
I think I'm missing some ingredients for the recipe on my site. How many and what size tortillas are used? I can already tell changes I would make. Sub mashed avocado for mayo and green onions for white onions. Maybe also add chopped cilantro. Yum!!
I love appetizer pinwheel recipes. What could be easier? This was another keeper. Took to work, they were devoured. I was told I couldn't leave work till I gave out the recipe. Thanks for another great recipe.
These tasty treats are the best. I'm asked to make them at every event, and they go fast. You don't have to follow exactly the recipe you can put your own spin on them and they turn out just as good. I like to add green chilli also if u don't have enough cream cheese you can use sour cream.
As others have said, it's not easy to get these cut uniformly. If the great taste matched the presentation, I'd have rated this a 5-star recipe.
Made this for a potluck today, tripled the recipe, left out onions since there was some in the salsa and no olives because I was unsure about what everyone would like at the potluck. I had none left over to bring home and had to make more because my kids were disappointed they didn't get any for supper. Thanks for the recipe!
