Festive Party Spirals

We had a family Christmas party today and I needed bring an appetizer.  Well, I decided to take a favorite of mine-the party spiral- and make it a little more festive.  Have you ever seen the green tortillas in the bread aisle?   I had never tried them, but thought they would look so pretty with bright red pimientos in that cream cheese center.  They were delicious and looked adorable assembled as a little wreath on my platter!  If you want to see my Ranch Party Spiral recipe or learn how to make them, go HERE.  I just changed a few things from that recipe to come up with this one!


Simply arrange them on the rim of a plate to make your wreath.  The bottom has two rows of spirals and I put one row on top.

 
 
Festive Party Spirals
6 - 10" green tortillas ( I used Mission brand- Garden Spinach Herb)
2 8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese, softened
2 green onions, chopped (both white and green parts)
1/2 pkg. dry Ranch dressing mix
4 oz. chopped pimientos, DRAINED WELL (I let mine drain on paper towels to get them very dry.)
 
Mix cream cheese, chopped green onion, and 1/2 pkg. Ranch dressing mix in medium bowl.  Spread mixture evenly among the 6 tortillas.  Spread the mixture over entire tortilla.  Sprinkle pimientos evenly among the 6 prepared tortillas.  (I wish I wold have taken a pic of the inside of the tortilla before rolling.  I would say no more than a teaspoon of pimientos per tortilla.  It really doesn't take very many.)  Roll each tortilla tightly.  Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour (or even overnight).  Cut each tortilla into 3/4" slices.  Keep refrigerated!
