Spicy Cream Cheese Pinwheels

This dish is another favorite that I like to bring to parties and pot-lucks, because not only is it delicious, but it is easy to make ahead too.

I tend to put more seasoning in this dish than the recipe calls for, since I like spicyness and hotness in my food. So definitely feel free to do the same to suite your tastes better.

Anyhow, here is the recipe. I hope you like it!


  • 4 large spinach flour tortillas
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped red pepper
  • 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tbsp chipotle or southwestern seasoning (I use “Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning Blend”)
  • 4 tbsp chopped green onions


  1. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except tortillas.
  2. Divide mixture into four.
  3. Spread a thin layer of cream cheese mixture on each flour tortilla.
  4. Starting at one end, gently roll each tortilla into a tight tube.
  5. Wrap and chill until ready to serve.
  6. To serve, unwrap roll, trim edges of tortilla and slice into eight 1-inch slices.

  1. My mother used to make these too! You remind me so much of my mother. Now I really want to make this recipe…. It was one of my favorites as a kid and it’s a good finger food for parties.
