Holiday Cheer - Mexican Pinwheels and Osyter Cracker Snack

I couldn't decide between these two recipes, so you get them both.

Mexican Pinwheels


8 oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz sour cream
8 0z cheddar cheese, grated
1 small can chopped black olives
1 small can chopped green chilies
Garlic and seasoned salt to taste
1 pkg large flour tortillas
Picante sauce


Combine all ingredients. Spread evenly on tortillas and roll up. Place in refrigerator, covered, overnight. When ready to serve, slice into 1-inch sections and served with picante sauce.

Oyster Cracker Snack


1 large box oyster crackers
1 pkg Ranch dressing
1 cup oil
1 tsp garlic salt


Mix all ingredients and place in a 13x9 baking dish. Bake at 450° until all oil evaporates, about 5-10 mins, stirring occasionally.

Tomorrow's recipe: Black-eyed Peas

Well, some of the cookie recipes I got from, great Christmas recipe, crafts and other ideas site. Some of the recipes I've actually And I have a lot of cookbooks. I probably should have noted the cookbooks I got them from, but didn't. I was trying to find the cookbook these two recipes are from, but couldn't. I think it was a book my nephew's band mothers put together. I've had the Mexican Pinwheels before, but have never made them. And the Osyter Cracker Snack sounded good and an easy dish to put out for a party.

And, no, I don't entertain a lot. I just have lots of recipe books.

Absolutely love those Oyster Cracker snacks. In fact I have to make them every year at Christmas. My recipe has some Dill and Lemon Pepper in it.
