I cannot recall where I got this recipe since it was so long ago. But it's a great appetizer, light snack, or sandwich substitute to accompany a piping hot bowl of soup.

  • 6
    (10-inch size) flour tortillas
  • 8 oz
    whipped cream cheese
  • 2 Tbsp
    fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 large

How to Make Party Pinwheels with Turkey, Tomato and Lettuce


  1. Spread the whipped cream cheese evenly on one side of all 6 tortillas.
  2. Sprinkle the basil and chopped tomato over the cream cheese layer on each tortilla.
  3. Place two lettuce leaves across the center of each tortilla.
  4. Place 2 slices of turkey on top of lettuce leaves.
  5. Roll tortillas, jelly-roll style. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  6. Remove tortillas from refrigerator. (For uniformity and to create a cleaner edge for the end pieces, you might wish to slice off the first 1/4-inch on both ends of each rolled tortilla, where the filling might not have reached all the way to the edge.) Then slice each rolled tortilla into individual Party Pinwheels at about 3/4-inch intervals.
  7. Arrange Party Pinwheels on a serving tray. If not serving immediately, cover platter with plastic wrap and keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.
