Buffalo Chicken Pinwheel Ingredients:

Pinwheel Ingredients

  • 12 oz. cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce (I used Franks Red Hot Buffalo Sauce)
  • 2 oz. light cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • green onion, chopped
  • 7 tortillas (I used the mission carb balanced – 120 calories a tortilla)

Ranch Dipping Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 cup non-fat plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp. hidden valley ranch dry seasoning
  • 1-2 tbsp. milk (optional, to thin out sauce)

Directions:

To Make The Pinwheels

  1. In a large bowl add shredded chicken, buffalo sauce, cream cheese, and cheddar cheese. Stir together until fully combined.
  2. To make the pinwheels lay one tortilla out flat on a cutting board. Measure out 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture and spread evenly over the tortilla. Optional sprinkle with chopped green onions.

  3. Start to roll tortilla keeping it slightly snug to ensure all ingredients stick together. Roll until tortilla is fully closed and place on a large plate or baking sheet. Repeat until you have used all the mixture should add up to 7 whole tortillas.
  4. Place in the fridge (is recommended) for at least an hour before cutting. When cutting make sure to cut into 8 equal pieces; this will ensure that the nutrition information is accurate and the flavors are evenly distributed. Refrigerate pinwheels until ready to serve.

For the Ranch Dipping Sauce

  1. In a small bowl stir together yogurt and ranch dry seasoning until fully combined.
  2. Optional add milk to thin out sauce to desired consistency.
  3. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
