Southwestern Chicken Tortilla Pinwheel Wraps



This is a twist with a little kick on a traditional party staple. These wraps are super easy to make and are also a great after-party snack. The best part, these tortilla wraps are made ahead of time so all you have to do the day of the party is slice and serve! Another bonus, since wraps come in a variety of colors these days, you can make your party extra festive by coordinating the colors for your holiday bash to add a little extra festive flair:

  • Christmas/Holiday: red (sun-dried tomato basil), green (garden spinach herb), white (flour/whole wheat)

  • Valentine’s Day: red (sun-dried tomato basil), green (garden spinach herb), white (flour/whole wheat)

  • St. Patty’s Day: green (garden spinach herb), white (flour/whole wheat)

  • Memorial Day: blue (blue corn tortilla), red (sun-dried tomato basil), white (flour/whole wheat)

  • 4th of July: blue (blue corn tortilla), red (sun-dried tomato basil), white (flour/whole wheat)
