Chicken Tortilla Pinwheels

I tasted these delicious Pinwheels at our good friends Peter and Romie’s place and we fell in love with this dish. It tastes so delicious and you can’t stop eating with just one or two slices. I wanted to try this dish for a very long time.

Finally I got a chance to try it yesterday for our subdivision party and no wonder it was a sooper dooper hit. Everyone loved it. Thanks to Peter and Romie.

Method Of preparation :

  1. In  a large bowl add all the ingredients except tortillas one by one and  beat it well until it’s blended.
  2. Now spread onto the flour tortilla, leaving about an inch all the way around.
  3. Roll it up tightly. Wrap this tortillas rolls each with plastic wrap tightly.Twisting the ends.
  4. Refrigerate it for several hours or atleast couple of hours before serving.
  5. After that remove the plastic wrap and slice the roll  into 1/2-in. to 3/4-in. thick. Discard ends. If you have electric knife it works well to slice the roll.
  6. Serve it with salsa.
