Cracked Out Turkey Pinwheels {Football Friday}

This recipe was inspired by Plain Chicken reader, Suzanne Smith. She emailed me last year and asked if I thought the crack dip would work in tortillas. I told her it would totally work if she swapped the sour cream for cream cheese. She made them and said they flew off the plate at her South Alabama tailgate. I couldn't wait to try them!

I am totally addicted to these Cracked Out Turkey Pinwheels. I absolutely LOVE them! Cream cheese, cheddar, bacon, Ranch and turkey wrapped in a tortilla. How could anyone not love these?!?!?! I make these Cracked Out Turkey Pinwheels all the time and eat them for lunch. They are super easy to make and will keep for several days in the fridge.

I used Boar's Head Blacked Turkey in these Cracked Out Turkey Pinwheels. It is my favorite deli turkey. If you are a fan of the blackened turkey, just use your favorite thin sliced deli turkey. They are also PERFECT for tailgating. You can make them ahead of time and they are super easy to transport to the parking lot.

Cracked Out Turkey Pinwheels 
approximately 3 dozen slices
(Printable Recipe)

  • 8oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Tbsp ranch mix
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 (3 oz) package Oscar Mayer bacon bits
  • 1/2 lb thinly sliced deli turkey
  • 4 large burrito tortillas (12-inch)

Mix softened cream cheese with the ranch powder, cheddar cheese, 1 Tbsp milk, and bacon until well combined. Add more milk if desired.

Spread about 2 Tbsp of this mixture evenly on each tortilla then lay 3-4 slices of turkey breast flat on top of the cheese mixture to cover in a single layer.

Roll the tortilla up gently, yet tightly to make sure it holds together and keeps its shape.

Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to firm up the softened cheese. Cut off ends of tortilla roll and cut into 1-inch slices.
