I love chicken salad and this easy recipe puts a spicy, mexican spin on it. These little cuties are the perfect appetizer for last minute company because they come together so quickly.  I like to serve them as little pinwheel appetizers. They go fast so be prepared.

The filling is creamy, savory, spicy, satifiying and packed with chicken, cheese, spicy mexican tomatoes, spices, and cream cheese.
