Easy Cheesy Chicken Tortilla Pinwheels
By Jan Bartholome 2HandsForHim
These are great to take to a party because they're pretty and yummy! The chicken makes them a little more filling than the ones made with just cream cheese.
You can make them a day or two ahead and take them unsliced if you like, finishing them up in your host's kitchen. Or you can slice them just before you leave and arrange them on a pretty plate, cover them with plastic wrap and arrive with an appetizer ready to put on the table. They can be out quite awhile without refrigeration and still taste great.

*The pimientos give the mixture a distinctive, slightly spicy flavor, so you might want to use less or substitute something else, like chopped tomatoes or red bell pepper, for color.
Makes about 50 1” pinwheels.
This recipe is really adaptable. Use ingredients you like or that you have on hand. Leave out the chicken and just use the cream cheese—really good! Or use ham instead of the chicken, or lay thin-sliced luncheon meat on top of the cream cheese. It’s hard to mess them up.

I hope you and your family enjoy them, Karen. They're actually easier to make than they are to write down! LOL! And they're good with or without the chicken!
