Tips to Take Your Pinwheels to the Next Level

  • Toast the tortillas in a pan before adding the ingredients for added texture and flavor.
  • Try using sliced turkey or chicken instead of ham for a different flavor and texture.
  • Add a sprinkle of chopped green onions on top for a bit of crunch and color.
  • If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding a bit of sriracha or hot sauce to the cream cheese and pineapple mixture for a spicy kick.
