What's Cookin' Sunday {No.2}

Happy Sunday Ya'll!!
Today I'm gonna show ya'll how to make pinwheels!
These are super simple! I eat them for a snack or a meal and people love them at parties or showers!

What you'll need
1. Large Tortillas
2. Cream Cheese (I use garlic & herd)
3. Spinach Leaves
4. Roasted Red Peppers
5. Roast Beef (or any other deli meat)
6. Plastic Wrap
7. Toothpicks
8. Sharp Knife

First, layout your tortilla
Second, spread your cream cheese all over the tortilla. Use as much or as little as you like! I prefer to pile it on, I'm a cream cheese addict.....probably not a good thing hehe so I use the fat free or 1/3 less fat kind
Next, layer on you spinach, meat & diced roasted red peppers. (I didn't use the red peppers this time because I ran out!) If you use roasted red peppers make sure you drain and dry them otherwise they will make the tortillas soggy! Also, make sure you keep a inch around the edge free.
Now its time to start rolling! Start from any side and roll the tortilla as tight as possible without breaking it!
Once you're all rolled up its time to wrap it in plastic wrap.
Place you pinwheel wrapped in plastic wrap in the freezer for at least 10 minutes. This will help keep you pinwheels together when you start cutting it.

When you're ready take your pinwheel out of the fridge and remove the plastic wrap. Start placing toothpicks in a line evenly down one side of your pinwheel.
 Take sharp knife and start cutting between the toothpicks
Keep cutting and pushing the toothpicks all the way through each pinwheel. You should be able to get 8 to 10 pinwheels out of your tortilla.
Voila! Enjoy.
