Mom’s Tortilla Pinwheels

Mom would be ok with me telling you that she’s not much of a Martha Stewart in the kitchen. Cooking just isn’t her thing. Now, crossword puzzles, on the other hand – she slays those. And, she’s the best female navigator I’ve ever had. She’s a human GPS, I tell you. But, she really should steer clear from the kitchen (love you, mom!)

They only come out for holidays and special occasions, but when they do, they’ve always been something I say “I think I’ll have another one…and another”. They’re just GOOD. And, they’re clearly simple to make, or else she wouldn’t do them. Don’t thank me for this recipe – thank Judy!

Mom’s Tortilla Pinwheels

8 oz Pkg of cream cheese
8 oz Grated colby jack or cheddar cheese
2 Green onions, sliced
2 Tbsp chopped parsley
3/4 C Salsa
10” California Style tortillas – white is best

Mix the filling ingredients together well in a bowl, and then spread about 1/4 C of the mixture on a tortilla jelly-roll style. Wrap the tortilla tightly in saran wrap to help hold the shape and refrigerate at least 2 hours. When ready to serve, slice tortilla into small pieces. These can also be served warm – place in 350 degree oven for 5-7 minutes to melt the cheese.
