Ham 'n Cream Cheese Pinwheels

 These are always a hit, no matter what the occasion.  Whether it be a potluck at work, this was exactly the last time I made them a couple of weeks ago.  A game day, or a gathering with friends and family.  They will disappear faster than you can say, "hey save some for me"! 

 They are a cinch to make, all without breaking the bank and feeding tons.  I know, score on all levels.  Look at how much only 8 fajita style wraps make.

Right?  Now you can fill them with whatever you want to fill them with, but our ultimate favorite is onion & chive cream cheese, peppers, sweet pickles and honey ham.  I don't know, something about that combination makes the flavors pop if I don't say so myself.  But be creative my friends, make it yours!!

Ready for the recipe?  Here we go;

Prep time: 20-30 minutes
Bake time: NONE
Yield: 56-64 pinwheels

1 pkg fajita style wraps (8 wraps)
2 tubs (8oz) onion & chive cream cheese
1lb (16oz) deli thin honey ham
1 large pepper, seeded, diced fine
3/4 cup bread 'n butter pickles (sweet), diced fine

-Spread each fajita wrap with cream cheese, till almost the edges.

-Lay the ham slices next.  I used about 5-6 slices per wrap.

-Sprinkle about 1 tbsp or so of both the diced pepper and pickles over the ham slices.  Now we are ready to roll. 

-Using the round that is closer to you, start to wrap tightly, like a burrito.  Continue till all the fajita wraps have been used.

-Wrap EACH log with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 1-1/2 hours before cutting.  Overnight is better.

**The yield will vary if you are cutting them into 7 pieces per log, or 8.**

Go ahead, grab one, I'll make more!!

Till next time!
