This recipe is something I have made for years and it is always a crowd pleaser. My favorite thing about this recipe is that you can make it the night before 🙂 Enjoy this recipe from my kitchen to yours. I have included on how to make this recipe gluten – free below. I know this will sound very silly but this recipe really “sings” – meaning there are TONS of flavors that simply just work 😉

What You Need

  • flour tortillas ( corn if you want to make a gluten – free version)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 Chopped Jalapenos ( seeded)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped green onion
  • 1/2 diced green pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1.5 Teaspoons of pepper
  • 12 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, grated
  • Salsa
  • 1 Tablespoon of finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 Teaspoon of lime juice and plenty of zest
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil

What To Do

1) Heat oil in a pan and add green pepper, Jalapenos , and salt. Cook till tender about 10 minutes

2) In a medium-sized bowl mix – cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar cheese, onion powder, green onions, garlic powder, pepper, cilantro, lime juice; sauteed green peppers and sauteed Jalapenos.

3) Heat of the tortilla in the microwave ( just 30 seconds) it makes it easier to wrap.

4) Place a “healthy” amount of mixture on a tortilla – and spread.

5) Roll and Set aside. Keep repeating steps 4 and 5 till you run out of tortillas or mixture 🙂

The one up top is my gluten -free version using a corn tortilla.

6) Place your “rolls” ( covered tightly) in the fridge for at least 5 hours or overnight.
When ready to serve, cut each roll into 1/2-inch slices.

7) Sprinkle with lime zest. Serve with salsa.

Enjoy

FAQs

How do I keep my pinwheels from getting soggy? ›

Keep them in the fridge.

To keep the pinwheels as fresh as possible, store them in the fridge until you're ready to serve them.

How to keep flour tortillas from breaking when rolling? ›

Secret #1 — Flour

Bread flour is a must! It adds the right amount of gluten and allows the dough to be rolled out perfectly thin without tearing. All purpose flour just doesn't get the job done quite right.

Can you prep pinwheels the night before? ›

Tightly roll up each of the tortillas and wrap each one in foil or plastic wrap; refrigerate the pinwheels overnight. Before serving, slice each roll up into ¼-inch slices. Arrange them on a platter or feed them to your ravenous family as you slice them.

How to avoid a soggy wrap? ›

Start by placing a layer of greens on the wrap to act as a barrier between the fillings and the wrap itself. You can use lettuce, spinach or other types of greens. They will also help prevent the wrap from becoming soggy.

Why are my tortillas hard to roll? ›

What makes flour tortillas hard is not adding enough lard or oil and water and not kneading the dough for the required amount of time, and NOT allowing the dough to rest in a warm place at least 30 minutes before making flour tortillas.

Why didn't my tortillas puff up? ›

You don't want a tortilla that's too thick — the steam won't rise under the weight of too much masa! A very thin tortilla will also be susceptible to tearing, which will sabotage your chance at a puff.

Why are my store bought tortillas sticking together? ›

Seriously, it's actually humidity: moisture and flour make a weak paste, and tortillas have a lot of surface area to make it stick.
