As a foodie and a blogger, my friends typically have high expectations regarding the dish I bring to pass at parties and gatherings. So when I was invited to my friend’s New Year’s Eve party last year, what dazzling culinary creation did I bring to show my gratitude for the invitation? I ran to the basement and grabbed a jar of these spicy cider dill pickles.

OK, that was a less than dazzling dish to pass. Don’t get me wrong, my spicy cider dill pickles taste great, but I kind of phoned that one in. I wasn’t really prepared for the party so I grabbed the first thing that was convenient. However, this year I’m ready with Pace® Salsa to kick up the flavor in my Mexican Tortilla Pinwheels! These bite-sized Mexican roll ups are packed with bold flavors of the southwest, and just as importantly, are quick and easy to prepare!
Pace® Salsa is a versatile, go-to, ingredient that I use to easily add genuine southwest flavor to simple, out-of-the-box dishes, such as this simple appetizer. I’ve even used it in the past to make an incredibly simple Cheesy Tex-Mex Rice! My Mexican Tortilla Pinwheels, however, require no cooking, just some simple prep work and you are ready to rock that party!
Your friends will love these Mexican Tortilla Pinwheels, they are soft, packed with flavor, and crisp bits of vegetables from the Pace® Salsa are found in each bite! Plus, since they can be made well in advance of any gathering, they are the ideal finger food to bring to your next party!
- 8, 10" Flour Burrito Tortillas
- 1 cup Salsa
- 8 oz Cream Cheese
- 4 oz Sour Cream
- 1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 2 tbsp Taco Seasoning
- 4.5 oz can sliced or chopped black olives (drained)
- 1 Green Onion (chopped)
Set aside the tortillas, and then combine all remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
Once thoroughly combined, scoop out roughly ~1/3 cup of the mixture and spread it evenly onto one side each tortilla.
Starting at one end, tightly roll up each tortilla and place it seam side down on a tray.
Once all tortillas have been rolled, cover with plastic and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to soften and absorb flavors.
Cut into 1" pieces and serve!
These don't require any cooking, however I do think they are best after they have softened in the refrigerator for a couple hours. That is why my recipe shows a "2 hour Cook Time".
