Pinwheels. Yummy, Yummy Pinwheels.

Appetizers are terrific.  I could eat appetizers for every meal and I'd be thrilled.  Can you imagine it, an entire meal of potato skins, bloomin' onions and nachos? Sign. Me. Up.

I made these for our Christmas get-together last year and they were awesome.  The problem I had was finding a recipe for them in the first place.  I've heard rumors that they're called something else and that would explain why there wasn't much to be found on pinterest... But I'm a resourceful gal and whipped up my own little concoction.

This is so simple... grab some cream cheese, a packet of ranch dressing mix, a package of tortillas and whatever deli meats and cheese you like.  I'm a roast beef and colby girl myself.

Take 4 oz of the cream cheese and mix it with a couple of teaspoons of the ranch dressing mix.  This will make two tortillas worth, so if you need more, use all the cream cheese and some more ranch dressing mix.

Once you're all mixed up, spread some on a tortilla.

Layer on some meat...

Some cheese...

And some lettuce.  I'm not a healthy-eating kind of girl, but I will say that the lettuce adds something to the whole thing.  My father loves a green onion right in the middle, but that's a bit much for me.

Once you're done, wrap 'er up.

Slice it and serve.  It's so yummy... and really fast.  Why you could even eat it while reading blogs and emailing people, trying to seem professional with a mouthful of pinwheels and orange soda stains on your pajama pants.

That's totally not what I did though.

  1. Thanks for linking up to Pomp Party this week... I haven't made pinwheels in so long. These are much easier to make than the recipe my mom has.
