Tortilla Pinwheels

Course Appetizer


  • 8 oz Cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/8 ts Garlic power
  • 3 tb Dried, minced onion
  • 8 Flour Tortillas, 8 to 10″
  • 1/4 lb Thin sliced rst turkey


  • Soften cream cheese, drain can of chilies, set out other ingredients.
  • Place cream cheese, milk, garlic, onion flakes, and salt in bowl. Beat until fluffy. 
  • Stir in chilies and cilantro leaves. Brush both sides of a tortilla with water. Spread one side of torilla with thin layer of the cream cheese mixture.
  • Cover torilla with a layer of the sliced meat. Roll up and place on plate, repeat.
  • Cover plate with plastic wrap and refrigerate from 1 to 8 hours. Cut into 1/2-inch slices and serve.
  • Makes about 4 dozen appetizers. * Pre-packaged “Buddig” style meats work well for everyday occasions.
  • Many supermarkets now carry small plastic containers of spices at one price.
  •  I’ve found that 1 container of cilantro (.15 oz) is satisfactory for most occasions, even though less than 3 Tablespoons.
