Friday Football Fare – Southwest Chicken Tortilla Pinwheels

Here is a savory treat for this weekend’s games! These Southwest Chicken Tortilla Pinwheels were a hit at our house. Warning: they have a little “kick” to them, but they are really good. Of course, the jalapenos are optional.  The best thing about them is they are very easy.
Southwest Chicken Tortilla Pinwheels
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
3 T. sour cream
1 can Rotel tomatoes, slightly drained
½ t. minced garlic
½ t. seasoning salt
½ t. black pepper
1 C. shredded cheese
5 green onions, thinly sliced
Chopped jalapenos, to taste (Optional)
1 can chopped, cooked chicken, drained
5 large flour tortillas
Combine cream cheese, sour cream, diced tomatoes, garlic and seasonings. Stir in cheese, green onion, jalapeno and chicken. Divide mixture between the tortillas , spreading evenly, leaving a ½ inch border around the edge. Roll up tightly. Wrap pinwheels tightly in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator to chill for, at least, an hour or until ready to serve. Remove from refrigerator and slice into 2 inch pieces.


I saw a similar version of this recipe on “Tide and Tigers Today” this weekend and they used ham instead of chicken. That would work, too! Enjoy and may your team win this weekend!
