Pinwheels These little guys are great for time-saving. Make the filling ahead of time and let the kids assemble the rest!
½ cup cream cheese softened 3 tablespoons mild salsa ¼ cup chopped peppers ½ cup grated cheddar cheese ¼ tsp chili powder
4 tortillas (6 inch)
Mix cream cheese and salsa with electric mixer; add peppers, grated cheese & chili powder.
Spread filling onto tortillas.

Kids love to play with their food! These fruit kabobs are fun and easy to prepare at any age and delicious to eat! Hit your local party-supply store or the dollar store and grab some wooden skewers and you’re ready to go!
Tip: Part of my routine when I buy groceries is as soon as I get home, I cut up all the fruit I purchased into bite-sized pieces and store them in a container to make assembly for these kabobs (or simply grabbing a healthy snack) quick and easy.
