Turkey cream cheese 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 cream cheese pinwheels make a great lunch for adults and children.
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, I decided to start making them at home since they are very simple to make.
All you need are tortillas, cream cheese, deli turkey, and really any toppings you would like to put on them.

Ingredients for Turkey Pinwheels
What you’ll need to make this recipe.
How to make this recipe
1 – Mix the dry ranch dip into the cream cheese until fully incorporated.
2 – Spread the cream cheese mixture onto a tortilla. I like the Olé Mexican Foods tortillas, but any tortilla will work.
3 – Place the turkey slices, pimentos, and diced green chiles on the tortilla and wrap it up tightly.
4 – 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 do I store turkey pinwheels?
You can safely refrigerate turkey pinwheels for up to 3 days in an air tight container. However, 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.
