How to make buffalo chicken dip pinwheels
- Place the chicken, cream cheese, hot sauce and ranch seasoning into a medium mixing bowl.
- Use an electric mixer to mix the ingredients together until they are well combined and have a spreadable consistency.
- Scoop ¼ to ½ cup of the mixture on a tortilla and spread evenly.
- Roll the tortilla up and repeat until you've used all of the mixture.
- Place the roll-ups in the fridge for an hour or two to firm up. This will make it easier to cut them into slices.
- Cut each pinwheel into 1 inch slices, place on a serving platter and enjoy!
Tips for making pinwheels
- Let the rolled tortillas chill in the fridge for at least one hour before slicing. The cream cheese needs a chance to firm up to make slicing the pinwheels much easier.
- To make this dip super easy, I used canned chicken breasts, but you can use any cooked chicken you have on hand. Sometimes I use shredded chicken that has been slow cooked in a crockpot because it is the easiest chicken to shred for dips like this one. Try my easy Crockpot shredded chicken recipe.
How to store
These pinwheels can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. Serve cold for the best experience.
