Easy 4-Ingredient Healthy Holiday Pinwheels

Easy 4-Ingredient Healthy Holiday Pinwheels

  • Author: Real Good Eats
  • Prep Time: 15
  • Total Time: 15
  • Yield: 8 pinwheels per tortilla 1x


These festive pinwheels are the perfect quick and easy holiday appetizer when you’re short on time (or energy!). By taking advantage of a couple of pre-prepared short cuts, this recipe comes together in minutes without sacrificing taste!



8” whole wheat tortillas

Pre-made guacamole, 2-3 tbsp per tortilla

Roasted red pepper (from a jar), diced, 2-3 tbsp per tortilla

Feta cheese, crumbled, 1 tbsp per wrap


  1. Lay the tortilla flat on your work surface. Spread the guacamole on the tortilla evenly, leaving a bit of space at the edges. Start with 2 tbsp of guacamole for each tortilla and add more as needed.
  2. Sprinkle the diced roasted red peppers and feta cheese evenly across the guacamole.
  3. Starting at one end, roll the tortilla tightly. Wrap the roll in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 5 minutes.
  4. Using a sharp knife, slice the tortilla into ~8 pinwheels. I used a serrated knife here as I found this easiest to work with. After each slice, rotate the tortilla roll so that you don’t continue to squish the tortilla on the same side.
  5. Once sliced, your pinwheels may need to be reshaped slightly. Sprinkle additional feta cheese on the plate over the pinwheels.
