Black Bean Tortilla Pinwheels

You should try these tasty little nuggets at your next party ~ they are great with Jalapeno's instead of olives, for those who don't care for them. Either way, they are a great finger food for any party. Serve them up with your favorite salsa...

I made them last night, so all of the flavors had plenty of time to mesh.

How to Make Black Bean Tortilla Pinwheels


  • 1Beat cream cheese until smooth and fluffy. Beat in the sour cream, until thoroughly blended.
  • 2fold in the onions, cheese, olives, season salt, and garlic powder. Taste and add more seasoning if prefer. I've also made them spicier with red pepper flakes. I made that optional. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • 3Spread thin layer of black beans and a then a thin layer of cream cheese mixture over tortilla's.
  • 4Trim ends and wrap each in plastic wrap and place back in refrigerator until chilled - I usually make these the night before.
