Easy Ham & Ranch Pinwheels


     Our family loves these pinwheel appetizer sandwiches.  They are so pretty visually and they taste amazing.  They are loaded with a yummy cream cheese filling and layered with ham and cheese that are so fresh and tasty. Whether you call these pinwheels or a roll-up, they are wonderful regardless.


·        3/4 lb.-1 lb. thinly sliced ham

·        2 (8 oz.) boxes cream cheese, softened

·        8-10 (8”) flour tortillas or 4-5 (12”) flour tortillas

·        ½ c. shredded Cheddar cheese (or your cheese preference)

·        1 envelope ranch dressing mix

·        Lettuce or spinach (optional)


 In a small bowl, beat together the cream cheese and ranch dressing mix until smooth.  Spread about 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture over each tortilla.  Top with 2-3 layers of ham and then 2-3 tablespoons of cheese and lettuce or spinach if using over half of the tortilla.  Cream cheese is spread over all the tortilla but the ham and cheese and other toppings are only on half of the tortilla.  Roll each tortilla up tightly and secure with a toothpick and repeat with each tortilla.  Refrigerate for at least one hour (I generally leave them for 2 hours) and then slice into 1” slices.  Serve with the spirals facing upwards and enjoy.


  Sometimes, I make these up and do not slice them up but serve each tortilla roll-up as a meal for my husband and sons. 

 These pinwheels are always a hit at parties.  They are perfect as they are but I generally place some homemade salsa close by because some people really love dunking them into salsa before eating.
