Turkey Pinwheels – Low-Calorie

These turkey pinwheels are a great low-calorie lunch option. Make the night before to save on time, and grab on the go before work or school.

 

These turkey pinwheels make a great lunch for adult and children alike. I make these for my son to take in his school lunch and they are different from some of the regular lunches of hummus, sandwiches, wraps, etc. He takes his lunch daily, so we’ve gone through every possible lunch item it seems.

 

Pinwheels are one of his favorite things to take, and he doesn’t get tired of them as easily. I used to buy them pre-made from the store for the convenience of being ready made. After buying them several times from the store, it makes more sense to make them at home. Plus, the bonus is they’re easy to make!

These turkey pinwheels are very simple to make because all you need are tortillas, cream cheese, deli turkey, and really any toppings you would like to put on them. To make, I mix dry ranch dip into the cream cheese to give it more flavor, just be sure to mix it in well. Spread the cream cheese mixture onto a tortilla. I like the Olé Mexican Foods tortillas, but any tortilla will work. Place the turkey slices, pimentos, and diced green chiles on the tortilla and tight wrap it up. Then, cut into slices.

 

Pinwheels are so versatile. Almost anything can be added to them, including different meats. When rolling them up,  just have to be sure to roll them tight so they stay closed.

 

A tip, these also make a great party appetizer, and a toothpick is ideal to hold them together.

 

How long to turkey pinwheels last?

You can safely refrigerate turkey pinwheels for up to 3 days, they taste best when eaten within 24 hours.

 

Can I freeze turkey pinwheels?

Yes, although they will taste best when eaten fresh. Arrange in a flat layer on a baking sheet and freeze completely. Once frozen, transfer to an airtight container and store for up to 1 month in the freezer.
