Tortilla Spirals

One of those easy-peasy recipes that most of us have made without an actual recipe...  tortilla bites or 'spirals' that look great on serving platters, can be made in many different flavors and people love them.  Served with sauces, salsa's or plain, have fun and mix it up a bit!  Perfect some of those football game platters being made every weekend. 

 
Tortilla Spirals

10 large flour tortillas (try the flavored wraps!  Green, orange, red... flavors and colors)
2 boxes of cream cheese
1 cup pitted black olives, finely chopped
2 tablespoons pimentos, finely chopped
1 pkg ranch dressing

2 tablespoons green jalapenos, finely chopped

Soften cream cheese Mix in the powdered Ranch dressing Add the pimentos, black olives and the jalapenos.

Spread evenly over the flour tortillas using a rubber spatula. Roll tightly in plastic wrap and chill for about one hour. Slice into 1/2 inch slices to form pinwheels or spirals. Serve this particular mixture with salsa.
