Recipe: Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: None

Yield: 8 servings

Serving size: 3 pinwheels


3 tablespoons ranch yogurt dressing

1 tablespoon hot sauce

3 large low-carb, high-fiber whole wheat tortillas

1½ cups baby spinach leaves

½ pound low-fat deli chicken breast, thinly sliced

¼ cup red onion, thinly sliced

¼ cup reduced-fat blue cheese crumbles


    In a small mixing bowl, stir together the ranch and hot sauce. Spread 1 tablespoon of the dressing on each tortilla, leaving about ¼ -inch border on all sides.

    For each wrap, layer ½ cup spinach, 6-8 slices of chicken, 8-10 slices of onions, and a heaping tablespoon of blue cheese. Tightly roll the wrap, leaving the ends open.

    Slice each end off that doesn’t have filling, and evenly slice 8 pinwheels from each wrap, about ½ inch thick.

    Serve chilled as an appetizer.
