Tortilla Pinwheels ~ Bite sized bites stuffed with Black Olives, Green Chiles, Cheese and Cream Cheese!


I always get excited when I go to someones house for an event and these are sitting on the table. I figured it was about time I tried to make them, well I tried once and it wasn’t pretty. I learned quickly that the key to making these little babies is good flour tortillas. I found those in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. The other tortillas I got were flaky and it was pretty! It’s also easier to cut these when they are stored in the fridge to let the cream cheese firm up.

The hubby daringly tried these (Daring for him!) and he fell in love too. I don’t think I’ll tell him that there are black olives in them. *GASP* He’d never eat them again. Little white lies never hurt anyone did they?

If you are starting to look forward to planning a Super Bowl Party these would be perfect!

    I did these and the sour cream made the mixture all runny

    • Julie Evink

      Did you use full fat sour cream or a light or non-fat sour cream? The light/non-fat will be runnier. Also my mixture is a little runny when I spread it on the tortilla then it firms up when it’s refrigerated before you slice the tortillas!

  • Shannon @ Living Life Cajun Style

    I make some similar to these but I never added the green chilies . I will be adding it next time. I bet they are great.

    • Julie Evink

  • Rebecca

    I’m Really Really Going to make this, Can’t Wait for it 🙂


  • Ashley

    I made these. I accidentally used regular salt instead of seasoned salt, and they were way too salty. I have made them before and don’t normally add salt or seasoning at all; they are usually plenty flavorful. Sometimes I use chopped pickled jalapenos instead of green chiles, and when I do, I add some of the juice.

  • Mary Caringola

    How long can pinrolls be stored in fridge before serving?

    • Julie Evink

      I would say serve them within 24 hours of making them!
