Mexican Pinwheels

Written by COA Nutrition Team On July 24, 2020

These simple-to-make Mexican Pinwheels are rolled up with chicken, cream cheese, salsa, fresh herbs, and spices for a kid-friendly lunch with a southwestern flair.


  • 8-ounce cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup salsa
  • 2-ounce cheddar cheese
  • 1-pound rotisserie chicken
  • 3 stalk green onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 2 sliced avocados
  • 1 cup of baby spinach, chopped
  • 4 medium tortilla, whole wheat


  1. Put seven first ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Spread some of the spread onto the entire surface of one of the tortillas
  3. On top of the spread, place 1 layer of the sliced avocado and ¼ of the spinach and roll it up tightly. Continue with the rest of the tortillas the same way.
  4. Cut the rolled-up tortillas into 2-inch sections. They are a little easier to cut when they have chilled in the fridge for about 20 minutes. Enjoy!

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Build time-saving habits

There are plenty of little habits you can build while cooking that will make you more efficient. For example, rinse prep dishes as you go to make washing them easier or move them into the dishwasher as you’re working. You can also create a scrap bag or bowl where you discard skins, odd bits, or anything else you might throw away while cooking – this way you don’t have to lose your flow walking over to the trash can. A huge time-saver: prep bowls. Measure out your ingredients beforehand and set them out in prep bowls. That way, once it’s time to use them, you can just grab the bowl and pour.
