  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • cup hot sauce
  • ¼ cup chopped celery
  • 2 sliced green onions
  • ¼ cup blue cheese
  • ¼ cup feta cheese
  • 4 10-inch flour tortillas


  • With a hand or stand mixer, mix the cream cheese, sour cream, lemon juice, and garlic powder until smooth and creamy.
  • Stir in the chicken, hot sauce, celery, green onions, blue cheese, and feta.
  • Spread the mixture evenly over four 10-inch tortillas.
  • Roll up the tortillas as tightly as possible.
  • Wrap the tortillas in plastic wrap and refrigerate them for several hours.
    Refrigerating the tortilla rolls allows the cream cheese mixture to firm up so you can easily cut even slices and the pinwheels will stay together.
  • Remove the plastic wrap from the rolls and cut the ends off. Slice each tortilla into 8 pinwheels.



Use room temperature cream cheese. Let your cream cheese come to room temperature before mixing it with the sour cream. This ensures a smooth and creamy mixture without lumps of cream cheese. 
Roll your tortillas tightly. To create pinwheels that won’t fall open when you pick them up, roll your tortillas up as tightly as possible. 
Wrap the rolled tortillas in plastic wrap. Plastic wrap will help the rolled tortillas hold their shape while they chill in the fridge.
Chill the roll ups for a few hours. Chilling the rolled up tortillas for a few hours before slicing them gives the cream cheese a chance to firm up again. This will make it much easier to slice your pinwheels and achieve a nice round shape. 
Slice with a serrated knife. Slice the pinwheels with a serrated knife to keep from flattening the tortillas rolls while you cut them.
