Plus they’re WW friendly. The best part is that nobody will even know.
To keep these pinwheels low in points I used Ole Xtreme high fiber tortillas. I use them quite often in my recipes because they are only 1 point each for blue, green and purple.
I don’t get paid to promote the tortillas, I just genuinely love them.
Pinwheels tend to be high in points because they usually have a lot of cream cheese. I lightened them up by reducing the amount of cream cheese and by using reduced fat cream cheese.
Adding chicken also helped keep them low in points, I used one cooked chicken breast that I cut into small pieces.
I also used reduced-fat Mexican cheese and center cut bacon. Both are lower in points.
It’s so easy to make these pinwheels! You mix together the cream cheese, ranch seasoning, green onions, Mexican cheese, bacon and chicken.
Make sure your cream cheese is room temperature, it will be much easier to spread. Once everything is mixed together you can start adding the cream cheese mixture to the tortillas.
Here is a great icing spatula set:
You can watch the video on how I made these pinwheels to see the icing spatula in action.
There’s enough filling to spread across three tortillas. After you spread the mixture you will roll up the tortilla.
I cut the ends off because there’s not much filling there. After that I cut 6 slices in each tortilla which made 18 pinwheels.
For blue and purple you can have one pinwheel for 1 point or three pinwheels for 4 points. With green you can have one pinwheel for 2 points or three pinwheels for 5 points.
One thing is for sure, these Chicken Bacon Ranch Pinwheels are a hit at any party!
Here are some more delicious, WW friendly recipes using chicken, bacon and ranch:
