The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make Crack Chicken Pinwheels (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

Cream cheese – soften the cream cheese so it is easy to mix.

Dry ranch dressing seasoning mix – use any ranch seasoning you like, such as Hidden Valley.

Shredded cheddar cheese – the cheddar cheese is a great flavor addition to the pinwheels.

Milk – the milk helps thin the filling down a bit to make it nice and spreadable.

Bacon – cook the bacon fully (or make air fryer bacon) and chop or crumble to have it ready to add to the filling.

Fully cooked chopped chicken – this is a great use for leftover chicken!

Large flour tortillas – you’ll need the 10-inch burrito size tortillas.

Roll the tortillas up gently but tightly to make sure they hold together. Wrap each tortilla roll in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Variations

Green Onions – Try adding chopped green onion to the chicken filling.

Flavored Tortilla – You can use different flavors of tortillas instead of a plain flour tortilla.

Wraps – Instead of cutting into pinwheels, cut the large rolls into two pieces to serve as larger wraps. This is great for packing lunches!

How to Store Leftover Chicken Pinwheels

Keep the leftover chicken tortilla rollups in an airtight food storage container or a zip-top bag and refrigerate for up to three days. The pinwheels do not freeze well, so freezing is not recommended.
