A combo of colored favored tortillas works great. The presentation, people with rave over. This makes 90 to 96 pinwheels, figure 5 per person.

I made this for an apres-football game party and loved it. I didn't buy the asiago cheese, but used extra old cheddar. Easy and good, with a number of requests for the recipe.
