The Mexican Pinwheels are delicious but I have lots of filling leftover. Can I freeze the leftover filling for the Mexican Pinwheels?

It is not advisable to freeze the filling mixture as it contains sour cream, cream cheese and cheddar. Freezing mixture containing dairy products such as these can change both the texture and taste of the mixture as they separate and become watery when frozen and defrosted. You can refrigerate the mixture for a few days and use it as a dip served with tortilla chips or as a topping for tacos or baked potatoes. You can also use it as a sandwich spread. Or simply reduce the proportion of ingredients to half if you want to make a smaller quantity of pinwheels and not be left with additional filling.

Thank you for the information about freezing, I'm glad I didn't freeze it yet. Your ideas for using the leftover filling are great!
