Jalapeno Pinwheels

This is a wonderful & simple appetizer from my sister-in-law, Reign. These keep really well in the fridge so you can make them 2 or 3 days ahead of when you need them or just make some up to keep in the fridge for snacking. Wade devours these so trying to keep a stash of them is impossible around here, lol. They are a huge favorite, even the kids love them!

1 pkg. flour tortillas 
8 oz. softened room temp cream cheese 
1 pkg sliced ham (lunch meat)
1 jar chopped jalapeno peppers


In a bowl mix the cream cheese with two or three heaping tablespoons of canned, diced jalapeno.
Stir together until well mixed.
Divide the cream cheese mixture equally on four or five flour tortillas & spread evenly.
Top with ham, slice ham to fit if needed.
Roll each tortilla up tightly and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Remove from fridge & cut into 3/4 inch slices. 

Variation~  Add 2 tablespoons of finely chopped, fresh cilantro to the cream cheese.
