Ham Pinwheels

Deirdre made these pinwheels for a party we attended last night.  This recipe was a home run!

-  5 10 inch diameter flour tortillas
-  8-12oz cream cheese
-  1 8oz package shredded Cheddar cheese
-  15 slices thinly sliced ham
-  1 cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
-  1/2 head iceberg lettuce, washed and separated into leaves
-  Southwest seasoning to taste

1.  Mix the seasoning with the cream cheese, then heat the cream cheese in a microwave for approximately 15 seconds to soften.  Place a tortilla on a work surface and using a spatula, spread 2 tablespoons of cream cheese evenly over the tortilla.  Layer three slices of deli ham over half the tortilla, followed by 2 tablespoons Cheddar cheese, 2 or 3 slices of cucumber and 2 or three lettuce leaves.
2.  Starting from the layered half of the tortilla, tightly roll into a log and 
secure with toothpicks.  Refrigerate the for 2-3 hours, then slice rolls into 1/2 inch thick slices and serve.
