Mexican Pinwheels

Appetizer #5 is vegetarian friendly! Remember I used to be a vegetarian? Oh how times change!

These are really simple to make. Just a couple of ingredients on an ezekiel wrap!

I’ve never used green chiles until this recipe and they are INCREDIBLE! A little bit of spice and sweetness. I loved them! A must in dishes from now on 🙂

It also includes my favorite Trader Joe’s Black Bean Dip! I haven’t eaten this in quite a while, so the time has come for it to jump back into my diet.

The day I found this was an AWESOME day!

These are spicy and creamy at the same time. I also really like to dip and while these would be perfectly fine on their own, I like to serve with a side of salsa for dipping 🙂

For this recipe you will need:
-One Ezekiel Wrap
-2 Tablespoons of 1/3 less cream cheese
-2 Tablespoons of green chiles
-2 Tablespoons of Trader Joe’s spicy black bean dip
-organic salsa for dipping

Basically you spread all of these ingredients on the wrap!

First the cream cheese

I know this looks kind of gross, but the flavors are amazing trust me. Think of when you have gone to an authentic Mexican restaurant and ordered. Most of the time the plate itself looks really ugly! But the taste is delightful 🙂 I was seriously eating these at 1045 at night finishing this blog. I kept saying okay, one more bite! Good thing it was cardio day!

Next you roll these super tight

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray (bottom and top) and cook for 8 minutes.

When they come out of the oven…

YUM!

You could also serve these cold. I tried one of each actually and I liked the warm better because the cream cheese got ooey gooey and melty! (proper words? nope!)

Pinwheels with salsa

Serve up with a side of organic salsa… good to go!

I like this brand. I think if the salsa was super spicy, it would take away from the pinwheels

Even though these do not look super spectacular, they were my favorite appetizer so far. The flavor combinations are so wonderful! Plus melted cream cheese? SOLD!

Happy eating…
