    Country Woman Christmas

    Whenever I serve these make-ahead appetizers, they disappear fast. When a friend at the office shared them with me, I knew in one bite I'd be bringing her recipe home for the holidays.

    SERVINGS: 20

    CATEGORY: Appetizer

    METHOD: Chill

    TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling

    1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1/4 cup picante sauce
    2 tablespoons taco seasoning
    Dash garlic powder
    1 can (4-1/2 ounces) chopped ripe olives, drained
    1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
    1 cup (4 ounces) finely shredded cheddar cheese
    1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
    8 flour tortillas (10 inches)
    In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sour cream, picante sauce, taco seasoning and garlic powder until smooth. Stir in olives, chilies, cheese and onions. Spread about 1/2 cup on each tortilla.
    Roll up jelly-roll style; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. Slice into 1-in. pieces. Serve with salsa. Yield: about 5 dozen.
    Editor's Note: Pinwheels may be prepared ahead and frozen. Thaw in refrigerator.

    Thought for the day: Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away!
