As the day keeps on rolling by, you need a snack that can keep you rolling with it! Tex-Mex Wheels are deep, delicious spirals of flavor straight from the borderlands; each tortilla round is filled with a spicy, creamy, tangy cream cheese filling that invokes the best of both burritos and nachos. Dipped in salsa for an extra hit of brightness and sweetness, Tex-Mex Wheels will have you doing cartwheels over how tasty they can be. There's more than enough to share... you just may not want to do so.
