Turkey and Pesto Tortilla Pinwheels

18 12 2013

I was telling a friend about the multiple holiday parties we had this past weekend and how I was working on concocting what to bring to each. A day or so went by and she asked what I decided on, and I quickly said, “oh ya know, boring pinwheels”. She laughed at me and said I love those, everyone loves those…and you don’t always have to make something fancy! And, she was right! They seem boring to me because so many people make them, but I never had….until now. And I admit, these are a good go-to when you need to bring something to a party and are in a pinch for time!

Turkey and Pesto Tortilla Pinwheels

Turkey and Pesto Tortilla Pinwheels

The following is compliments of Home Cooking Memories:

  • 8 oz reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup pesto (I use homemade, but you could use store-bought)
  • 2/3 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 3 large whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 lb turkey, thinly sliced

Combine the softened cream cheese, parmesan and pesto in a bowl until smooth. Spread pesto mixture evenly on open tortillas (basically from edge to edge). Next, add a layer of turkey on top of the pesto mixture. Roll up tightly and wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours. Remove from refrigerator, unwrap, slice into rounds and serve.
