How to make BLT Pinwheels
In a bowl, mix the softened cream cheese with the mayo, ranch seasoning and bacon pieces.
Put 1/4 of the bacon and cream cheese mixture on each tortilla. Spread to the edges using a rubber spatula.
Sprinkle the chopped lettuce and tomatoes evenly over each tortilla.
Roll up tightly, and wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours to make each tortilla easier to slice.
Remove from the refrigerator, and remove plastic wrap. Cut into 1-inch sections with a sharp knife.
Arrange flat on a platter to serve.
Can you make pinwheels the day before?
Yes! Making the pinwheels up to 24 hours in advance is a great way to save time on party day. You can also try variations, like these Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pinwheels.
How do you keep tortilla rollups from getting soggy?
To keep these tortilla rollups from getting soggy, be sure to dry the lettuce and tomato well after washing them. And don’t skip the plastic wrap step—this is the best way to keep tortilla pinwheels from getting soggy.
How long do BLT pinwheel appetizers last?
Store any leftover BLT pinwheels in an airtight container—but not for too long! Gobbling them up within a day or two is the tastiest option. If you wait any longer, they can get soggy.
Don't eat bacon?
If you like the idea of these cream cheese and bacon pinwheels but don't eat bacon, consider using vegan bacon as an alternative.
