Pretty Party Pinwheels

If you're looking for appetizer recipes that will totally "Wow" your crowd, then you must try these delicious Pretty Party Pinwheels. An easy appetizer that uses tortillas, cream cheese, and loads of other flavorful ingredients, this is sure a winner! Our #1 desire for a recipe is taste, of course, but close behind is appearance. These pinwheels rank well in that department, as you can see from the photo. Pretty and delicious? Now that's a win-win.



  • 2 jalapeo chiles, quartered (leave the seeds in if you like it hotter)
  • 4 green onions, coarsely chopped
  • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 of a (0.4-ounce) package ranch dressing mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 10 large flour tortillas
  • 5 cups loosely packed fresh spinach, washed and dried
  • 5 to 7 Roma tomatoes, seeded and very thinly sliced
  • salsa or Louisiana-style hot sauce, for serving


  1. Put the jalapenos and onions in a food processor, and process for 3 to 5 seconds, until well chopped.
  2. Add the cream cheese, dressing mix, and pepper, and process again until all is well mixed.
  3. Using a spatula or butter knife, spread the mixture evenly over one side of each flour tortilla.
  4. Arrange 1⁄2 cup spinach and a few tomato slices on top of the mixture on each tortilla.
  5. Roll up each tortilla, making a tight roll. Once all are rolled and stacked on a plate, cover with plastic wrap or foil and put them in the fridge to chill for about an hour.
  6. Using a sharp chef’s knife, slice each rolled tortilla into 1⁄2-inch-thick rounds. Arrange attractively on a serving platter.
  7. Serve with salsa or Louisiana-style hot sauce on the side.

When you're working with flour tortillas that you have to roll, it's best to let them set out to get to room temperature. When they're cold, they tear and don't stretch. Even if you're not rolling them, they will separate from each other easier at room temperature. Cold, they stick together and pull layers off.

I thought these were going to be super spicy, but they had a really great flavor to them. While I prefer other people to make pinwheel sandwiches for me (or to just give me a package of some), I'd make these again.

I loved these pinwheel sammies! They would be the perfect finger food for Superbowl parties or picnics. I'd add more jalapenos, though...I couldn't taste them at all and was hoping for a little kick.

I was nervous about the jalapenos (I hate anything spicy), but I could barely taste them. What I did takes was the cream cheese and ranch spread (yum!), spinach and tomatoes. The jalapenos added a little kick, but nothing too crazy.

Loved these pinwheels! The cream cheese and ranch dressing mix are what did it for me. Perfect as an appetizer or even as a replacement for a sandwich at lunchtime.

Spinach makes pretty much any appetizer an occasion, and these pinwheels are no exception. I love the addition of the jalapenos for a bit of kick as compared to other pinwheels I've sampled.

This is a great recipe for book club or a get-together. Nothing about it is life-changing, but it is satisfying for a light bite.

These were absolutely delicious and a fantastic summertime appetizer!

I can't wait to go home cook. It look good for 4th of July, menu.
