The filling flavor was good, but I was not impressed with the inaccuracy of the approx. servings per recipe. Also, 1/2 cup of filling per 10" tortilla was way off. Should have been 1 cup. I lost 2 inches on each side due to lack of filling, plus had open gaps in some of the pinwheels. This happening even though I doubled the recipe, but not the tortillas . Flavor and presentation was enjoyed by all. My rating reflects amount of servings suggested.

Flavor is good. Just by reading the recipe I felt it needed something..it's basically a flavored spread with olives. I added a grilled chicken breast finely chopped, could have added a second cut chunkier. Used finely shredded cheese, should have used the regular, thicker cut because it disappeared. Will definately make again with changes. Calling shenanigans on 5 dozen.

The flavor is pretty good, but I had to cut the rating in half due to the inaccurate portion sizes. It claims it makes about 5 dozen. Yet, I had to add an additional package of cream cheese, another cup of cheddar cheese, and an additional 3/4 cup sour cream to get only 3, MAYBE 4 dozen, and they aren't filled nearly as full as the photo above. Very disappointed, since it's for my son's birthday party and I don't have time to get to the store to make another batch.

Made them this past summer and took them to my brother and his wife 50th Wedding Anniversary. It was a hit. That will be on my recipe box.

This is a wonderful recipe...so good! Note to HB Cook from 2009: yes, there is waste on the ends; but that is your reward for your hard work...you eat the ends. O Happy day!!

This was yummy! I made it exactly as written. To prevent the filling from spilling out, I simply stopped spreading it about 1 inch from one side of the tortilla, then rolled the tortilla toward that end. The filling kind of squished and spread itself into that area as I rolled, and there was no spillage. Use a very sharp non-serrated knife to cut it. I am also using this as a sandwich spread with avocado for my quick breakfast this morning. Delicious!
