    3. Add taco seasoning and just a little bit of water. Stir well.
    4. Combine cooked taco meat, cream cheese, and cheddar cheese. Stir well.
    5. Spoon ¼ of the mixture onto a tortilla, then spread evenly in a thin layer to the edges.
    6. Roll the tortilla up, and slice it into 1-2 inch pieces.
    7. Stand pinwheel up, and shape into a circle, if needed.


I made two batches of pinwheels. One batch, I made with Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Original. The second batch, I made with Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Hot & Spicy. Both of these tasted REALLY good.

You could even choose to use the mild seasoning if you wanted. You have several possibilities when it comes to pinwheel wraps.

Here are the process pictures for this great-tasting game day food. I don’t want you to have to print them unless you want to do so:

I have a couple of other game day recipes posted. So, don’t forget about the Buffalo chicken pinwheel recipe or the BLT dip. Both would be AWESOME to take to any type of party including a game day party.

The Girl Who Ate Everything has a great compilation of football food. I especially love the jalapeno popper dip idea. Check it out because she has MANY posted.
