Taco Pinwheels – A perfect appetizer for your next gathering! Flour tortillas filled with a taco seasoned cream cheese mixture and full of spicy flavors!
Today I bring you one of my favorite appetizers to make. I have another popular version on my blog which you may have seen . These are my go-to appetizers I like to make ahead for any gathering. And with summer approaching, you may be in need of a great dish to take with you to a backyard BBQ or an upcoming pool party.
Speaking of pools, my kids were off for spring break last week, and they must have begged to go swimming 99,000 times! I kept saying that we had other plans, and that the pool wasn’t quite warm enough yet. That did not convince them. I mean, I guess, they could have swam and been fine, but I’m not about to get in the water and freeze yet. I need it to be like May before I get in there.
So we did other fun stuff. We went to the park, went shopping, went to the movies, had a zoo day, stumbled upon a Sky Zone indoor trampoline place (I think this was their favorite), and cleaned out closets. If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you saw some of this.
I’d say it was a very productive and very fun week. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Getting off that school schedule is kind of nice.
- 4 burrito-size flour tortillas
- 2 8 oz. blocks of cream cheese, softened

- You may serve with salsa for dipping.

This kind of food dish in my country is called risolles and good to eat while relaxing or while presenting guests
Janet Bradley says
Could you make this with hamburger (cooked with tao seasoning), then just follow the recipe as written?
Sounds like a wonderful recipe. I’ve printed already, just waiting on a reply.
Thanks, Janet Bradley
Hi Janet! I have not done hamburger because it is a cold appetizer. I have another one that is made with crescent rolls and served warm and you could replace the chicken: https://www.diaryofarecipecollector.com/crescent-chicken-taco-pinwheels.html
Going to make them for a church ladies game nite.. are they hot since having chilies and jalapeño… I may leave them out… in case too spicy for a grp of ladies only!!!! Sure looks delish and can’t wait to serve them!
So glad you gave them a try for your group!
