These tasty little Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pinwheels are easy to make and are great appetizers or even to enjoy for lunch.
I love pinwheels. They make cute little appetizers and are also great for lunches. Any kid (or adult) would love to dive into these tasty little Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pinwheels when they open their lunchbox.
While my kiddos are a few years away from jumping on the school bus with their lunchbox in hand, I still love to create fun lunches for them. Like many three year olds, I am in the midst of a picky eater stage. Not fun for a foodie like myself who wants to whip up Pinterest inspired lunches for them. They are not big meat eaters, they even turn their noses up at chicken tenders. I don’t know many kids that don’t like chicken tenders or nuggets. I will remind them of that one day when that is all they want to eat.
One thing I have found they like are you guessed it, pinwheels. How could you not love these cute tortilla rolls that are filled with cream cheese, cheddar cheese, crispy bacon and a handful of spices. I love this creamy filling. The combination of the cheddar, bacon and ranch is the great in these pinwheels and is also works great to serve simply as a dip or even in phyllo cups.
With football season kicking off soon (Go Bills), these make a fun appetizer to serve at a football party. You can even make these ahead of time and pop them in the freezer. When ready to eat just thaw and serve.
What you need
Step one: Add all ingredients except tortillas in a large bowl and beat on low until creamy.
Step three: Tightly roll tortillas and wrap in saran wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. When ready to serve cut off ends and slice into pieces.
Freezer tip: Place slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in freezer until frozen. Transfer to a freezer safe container or freezer bag. To thaw, place desired amount of pinwheels on counter for about 30 minutes before serving.
