Easy Party Appetizer IdeasOk, now let’s get back to the taco pinwheels recipe!

If you’re looking for an easy appetizer to take to a party, family gathering, or even to serve for unexpected friends when they come over… Taco Pinwheels should be on your list!

Mmm! These are super easy too. Taco Pinwheels are no-bake, no-cook party appetizers that are easy to serve at parties.

RO*TEL:

For this recipe, we used one of our favorite ingredients, RO*TEL, to zest up the flavor of our taco pinwheels. RO*TEL will banish the bland and bring out the bold; no matter if it’s for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You’ll more than likely find this ingredient in one of our dishes at least once each week.

There are so many ways that you can use RO*TEL, for a spicy spin in a recipe, or just as a topping on a favorite dish. (Like on top of scrambled eggs for breakfast! Mmmm, one of my faves!)

The filling for taco pinwheels. Cream cheese, taco seasoning, corn, black beans, cheeses...mmmm! So good to serve for parties

Taco Pinwheels Tutorial:

Combine all of the ingredients except the tortillas…

I could literally eat this with a spoon and stop right there.

Roll up the filling inside of tortillas and they're ready! Yum! Cream cheese, taco seasoning, corn, black beans, cheeses...mmmm! So good to serve for parties

Spread a spoonful or two in the tortilla and spread out. Roll up really tight, and stick them in the fridge for a bit to chill!

Refrigerate the rollups/pinwheels, and that's all the prep needed for these taco rollups! Yum!

Next, slice them in to circles and serve.

  1. Such a delicious appetizer – and it’s no bake too! So loving the punch of flavor that RO*TEL ads to these – my daughter is looking over my shoulder right now and asking to go to Walmart to pick up these ingredients to make these for dinner tonight! 🙂

    Making these for a new years get together! I added lime, avocado, and diced black olives. Delicious!

      Mmmmmm!!!! All of those additions sound amazing! I’ll do that next time. Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. Dawn Coleman says:

    so, do you cream the cheese and spice first, then add ingredients?

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Dawn! We mixed all of the ingredients (except tortillas) together in a bowl, and then spread the mixture on to the tortillas. I’m not sure if that answers your question or not though, so just let me know if not! 🙂 Thank you!
