Tortilla Pinwheels

Our church was going to have service this morning at the park followed by a picnic potluck, but...it rained! So we moved indoors. But thinking we were going to be outside, I didnt want to hassle with trying to keep a dish warm, so I opted for some gussied up tortilla pinwheels- so stress free (seriously, you dont understand how I stress about what to bring to potlucks!)
These pinwheels have a cream cheese spread that came from a great friend of mine from college. It has ranch flavor and veggies in it. Usually we just make them with just the cream cheese mixture rolled up in a tortilla, its SO DELICIOUS! I thought it really tasted great with all the other fillings and made the pinwheel more hardy.

Tortilla Pinwheels (cream cheese spread adapted from Greta)

Tortillas (I used spinach, but any would work), at least burrito size, unless you can find bigger ones (about 8 burrito size ones)
2 pkgs 8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1 pkg. dry ranch dressing
1/2 c. finely chopped green pepper
1/2 c. finely chopped carrot
3 green onions
about 1 lbs of turkey slices
cheddar cheese slices
red leaf lettuce
sliced tomato

*Combine the cream cheese, dressing packet, green pepper, carrots and onion.
*Lay out the tortillas on your counter and spread them with the cream cheese mixture (you can go lighter if you plan on making them with all the fillings but spread it a little thicker if you dont plan on adding any other fillings)
*Place a layer of turkey over each tortilla then top with some cheese over the tortilla
*Place a line of tomatos down the middle of the tortilla and top with a line of lettuce
*Roll up tightly starting from a tomato free end
*Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hrs or overnight
*Slice in 1 inch pieces (reserving the ends for snacking :)
