"Appetizers"- Red Bell Pepper and Broccoli Pinwheels

Little kids love colorful finger foods....They love these tiny pinwheels with Veggies....so tasty, so colorful, with their favorite cream cheese and so easy to handle for their Teeny-Tiny fingers!!
These were one of the snacks for 'E'' and 'A's Dinosaur themed birthday party last week.
These pinwheels are so versatile..you can put almost anything in cream cheese and roll these up!
I have had...Spinach-Jalapeno pinwheels, Black beans and Salsa pinwheels, Onion and green chili pinwheels.....and they all tasted delicious!!!
I went ..the colorful route..I used the vibrant Red Bell Pepper and the fresh Green Broccoli!!!Together they looked so pretty in the white cream cheese and the tortillas background...
