Easy Party Pinwheels Recipe
Are you ready for football season and tailgating parties? I’m not really a big fan of the game itself, but I am definitely a fan of football food. Making a meal out of appetizers, snacks, dips, and chips is the best.
I love some good gluttonous party food as much as the next person, but in an effort to lighten things up I made these veggie pinwheels.
They’re meat-free, and you can keep them gluten-free by using corn rather than flour tortillas. You’ll never miss the meat in these rollups because they’re packed with flavor.
There’s a creamy avocado spread I made by mixing avocado with Silk’s Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative, the chipotle seasoning adds a nice kick, there’s bright and fresh cilantro, chewy sun-dried tomatoes, and the cheese is dairy-free (Try brands like this or this).
The tortilla pinwheels are incredibly fast and easy to make and in 5 minutes you’ll be snacking away. It’s usually the fast and easy recipes that go first at parties and these are no exception.
My friends gobbled them up at a recent get-together, and you can easily double or triple the recipe depending on how many hungry fans you have.
What’s in the Tortilla Pinwheels?
To make this easy pinwheel appetizer recipe, you’ll need:
- Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt
- Lemon juice
- Cheddar cheese (use dairy-free, if needed)
- Chipotle seasoning
- Sun-dried tomatoes
- Fresh cilantro
How to Make Tortilla Pinwheels
In a small bowl, mash together the avocado, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and yogurt. Spread the avocado mixture over two burrito-size tortillas.
Add the cheese slices on top, then sprinkle with the chipotle seasoning, sun-dried tomatoes, and fresh cilantro.
Roll the tortillas up, then slice into 1-inch pinwheels.
Can This Recipe Be Prepared in Advance?
Yes! You can make the party pinwheels up to 12 hours before you plan on serving them. The avocado mash shouldn’t oxidize in that time since it gets mixed with lemon juice first.
Tips for Making Veggie Pinwheels
When spreading the avocado mixture over the tortillas, be sure to leave a 1/4-inch margin around the edges so the filling doesn’t ooze out.
You’re welcome to mix and match the fillings of this tortilla roll ups recipe. Use different cheeses, add more herbs, and so on.
This recipe is easy to double or triple, so make however many tortilla pinwheels as you need!
