Pinwheels are so versatile, they can be used as finger food at fancier parties or holiday parties, but also make a great option for casual gatherings like game day. They can be made in advance and hold over well.
To make the Horseradish Roast Beef Pinwheels, first mix the cream cheese mixture by combining the cheeses, thyme, spices, and horseradish together. You can add as much or little horseradish as you would like based on your spice preference. If you are concerned, start with only 1/2 Tablespoon, and add more as desired to taste.
Then spread the mixture out across the tortillas and layer on the roast beef. Tightly roll up the tortillas into logs, without squeezing out the cheese, and chill. Chilling the logs helps the cheese to set so it does not leak out and also makes them easier to cut. Slice them up into rounds and serve.
