This is a great appetizer to bring to a party because the hostess does not have to worry about baking or heating it. They taste really good too.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These Mexican pinwheels are super easy to throw together and so tasty. Cream cheese and cheddar cheese are typically used in the filling for pinwheels. Where these become special are the additional ingredients. Black olives add a nice texture. Fresh cilantro gives the filling a punch of flavor and a Mexican flair. Jalapenos give these pinwheels a spicy kick. An easy snack or appetizer for game day, Cinco de Mayo, or really any get-together. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
