veggie penwheels recipe

Are you looking for a quick thrifty recipe for a finger food … How about Veggie Pinwheels.

You will need:

  • 8-10 flour tortillas
  • 5 different veggies 2/3 cup each
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 8oz sour cream
  • 1 ranch packet

Start out with 5 veggies…what ever your family likes.  Cut up 2/3 cup of each into small bits. I used Green onions, broccoli, celery, carrots and tomatoes (seeded or they are too juicy). In a mixing bowl add  ranch packet, 8 oz soften cream cheese, 8 oz ( half big container). Mix till well blended. Spread about 3 tablespoons on a flour tortilla…make sure you get it all the way to the edge. Spread veggies on top of cream mixture.  Make sure to leave about an inch on top with no veggies so it will stick closed. Roll up and place on a plate…cover with plastic wrap….and let chill for 2 hours till cream cheese is firm again

Cut….and enjoy.  These are great made the day before.


  1. Someone just pointed me to Simply Organic Ranch Mix that doesn’t include MSG. They also gave me a recipe to share to make your own…
    Dry Ranch Dressing Mix

    1/2 cup dry buttermilk powder
    1 tablespoon dried parsley, crushed
    1 teaspoon dried dill weed
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1 teaspoon dried minced onion
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
    Combine all ingredients in the container of a food processor or
    blender and process on high speed until well blended and powdery
    To use mix: Combine 1 tablespoon dry mix with 1 cup milk and 1 cup
    mayonnaise. Mix well.
    Makes 2 cups salad dressing

  2. Looks good, but do you know of any ranch packets that don’t include MSG? That stuff is poison and I won’t give it to my family. Is there a substitute? I can’t seem to find either ranch or onion soup packets without MSG. It gives me terrible migraines and it changes your brain chemistry, which is the opposite of healthy.
