Total Time30 mins
Course: Appetizers, Side Dish, Snacks
Cuisine: American
Servings: 40 pinwheels
Calories: 39kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 T fresh dill
  • 3 scallion
  • 1 sweet pepper (orange or red in color)
  • 2 T red onion (diced)
  • 1 serrano pepper (diced)
  • 2 tsp. ranch reasoning/salad dressing mix (or less if salmon is salty)
  • 6 oz smoked salmon
  • 4 Mission Carb Balance tortillas

Instructions

  • Place cream cheese in a microwavable bowl, cover with a paper towel, and microwave for 30 seconds to soften. Mix in the ranch seasoning.
  • Dice all the vegetables and add them to the cream cheese. Mix until all the ingredients are incorporated.
  • Fold in the smoked salmon.
  • Divide the cream cheese mixture into four portions. Spread ¼ of the mixture on each of the four tortillas.
  • Roll each tortilla tightly, but not tight enough to squeeze the ingredients out of the tortilla.
  • Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  • Wrap each roll in saran wrap and chill for a few hours to allow them to set. Slice each roll into ten slices, and serve!

Notes

  • Pinwheels are awesome for a last minuter snack, and the perfect dish to take to a gathering or a potluck. But what do you do if you don't have smoked salmon in the fridge? How about using shrimp, or even chicken. Or you can keep them vegetarian and skip the meat altogether!
  • Alternatives to cream cheese include goat cheese, shredded cheddar, or even laughing cow triangles.
  • There are also numerous vegetable options. Why not add black olives, diced cucumbers, chopped tomatoes, and chives?
  • A good way to get ideas is to pick a theme, for example, Italian. Then simply use ingredients that are usually found in Italian dishes like basil, black olives, artichoke hearts, and sun-dried tomatoes.
