Rolling the Tortilla Roll Ups/Pinwheels 

On a flour tortilla spread a layer of the chicken mixture. You do not want the layer to be super thick to where you cannot roll the roll up but not too thin to where you cannot get the flavor of the filling in your bite.

Roll the tortilla starting at one edge and set aside. Repeat until the mixture has been used.

Chill and Cut the Tortilla Roll-Ups/Pinwheels

Chill the tortilla roll-ups for at least 30 minutes then slice them to create round pinwheel-like bite-sized pieces. Chilling in the refrigerator allows the filling to set up and makes slicing the pinwheels easier.
