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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Slice each end off that doesn't have filling, and evenly slice 8 pinwheels from each wrap, about ½ inch thick.
  4. Serve chilled as an appetizer.
