How to make Pinwheel Sandwiches

In a bowl combine your cream cheese, ranch package and diced/chopped green onions together and make sure it’s all mixed as evenly as possible.

mix your ranch seasoning and cream cheese for a mixture that can be spread on tortillas

Cooks Note: If you prefer to have less thick center, you can easily use 1 package (8 oz) instead of 2.

I’ve had it both ways and it both taste awesome so it’s more of a preference.

Lay out your tortillas and spread the cream cheese mixture evenly on the entire tortilla.

spread cream cheese on your spinach tortillas for a great base

Now sprinkle your diced veggies, making sure they don’t clump up in one area because it makes it harder to roll evenly.

add diced veggies to your tortillas for a yummy crunch

In the case of this recipe, I kept it super simple, but you can also layer on black olives, shredded cheese, or diced pickle as well.

Personally in this flavoring I wouldn’t add ham, so I will address a better recipe for ham rollups in another post.

This recipe is more for vegetarian tortilla pinwheels.

Cutting your Pinwheels

Slowly roll up your pinwheels tightly and evenly.

roll up your tortillas tightly so they can be compact in a finger food

Wrap them in plastic wrap or aluminum foil so they keep their shape and pop in the fridge for a minimum of 2-3 hours.

They set even better overnight but if you are rushed for time, a few hours is plenty to get cold.

Take out of fridge and trim edges.

Now slice into 1-1.5 inch slices, which make a quick and easy appetizer that will be a big hit at your next party!
