Ingredients

  • 1
    cup
    chopped veggies: broccoli, carrots, red bell pepper
  • 4
    oz
    cream cheese
    (softened)
  • 1/3
    cup
    mayo
  • 1/2
    tsp
    garlic powder
  • 1/4
    tsp
    dried dill
  • 1/4
    tsp
    salt
  • 1/8
    tsp
    black pepper
  • 2
    large burrito-sized flour tortillas
  • 1/2
    cup
    grated cheddar cheese
  • 2
    TBSP
    chopped green onion

Instructions

  1. Choose and chop your veggies. I mince mine extra small so there's a little bit of everything in each tasty bite.

  2. Allow cream cheese to soften for easy mixing. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, mayo, garlic powder, dill, salt and pepper.

  3. For easy rolling, microwave tortillas for 15-20 seconds first. Spread on cream cheese mixture and sprinkle evenly with veggies, cheese, and chopped onion.

  4. Start at the edge of the tortilla and roll it, tightly, until you reach the opposite side.

  5. The cream cheese will help it stick. Fasten with a toothpick or two and chill in the freezer for 20 minutes to set.. Feel free to chill overnight in the fridge (tightly wrapped or in a storage container) if making these in advance for easy. meal/snack prep.

  6. All that's left is to slice into pinwheels and serve!

Recipe Notes

The “cook time” is actually chill time. Chill your rollups in the freezer for 20 minutes for easy slicing and to help them keep their fun pinwheel shape.

You can make these the night before for easy packing/snacking and simply store chilled in the fridge until ready to slice and serve.
