I used to love buying pinwheels from the deli section of the grocery store. Now I prefer to make them myself. They’re even better since I can tailor them to my own taste.
- 10″ burrito sized tortillas (thinner tortillas work better)
- your favorite thick dip
- fresh spinach
- chopped tomato
- slice of cheese (cut into smaller squares)
- sliced deli meat
Place your tortilla on a piece of foil the same size. Spread a thin layer of dip over the tortilla. Dressing will work too as long as it isn’t too runny.
Add a layer of spinach.
Spread out a layer of tomatoes.
Add your cheese. I like to use smaller pieces so it isn’t too bulky when rolling it up.
Add the deli meat in an even layer.
Roll the tortilla away from you. Once you get to the end, bring the edge of the tortilla towards you instead of rolling away from you. This helps to keep everything in there.
Place the rolled tortilla in a corner of the square of foil. Roll it up in the foil until you get towards the middle and each end of the tortilla is pointing towards a corner of the foil.
Then you’ll fold over the corners so nothing can spill out.
Continue rolling until it is all wrapped up. Refrigerate for a few hours. The longer it sits the better the flavors mix together.
When it is done in the fridge, unwrap and slice.
These tortilla pinwheels are great to make ahead for get togethers. Lay out as many tortillas as you need and make a bunch at once. I love having these ready to go for a filling lunch.
