Tips & Tricks

  • You’ll want to dice the tomatoes and lettuce into small pieces, so they roll easily and
    don’t fall apart once cut.
  • Be sure to let the cream cheese come to room temperature before you start, or it won’t spread easily and may tear the tortillas.
  • Try these BLT roll-ups with tomato or spinach tortillas next time. You can also add some creamy smashed avocado, crisp green onion, or tangy sundried tomatoes.
  • Make a lighter version of these pinwheels by using turkey bacon or light mayonnaise instead of regular.

How Do I Store BLT Pinwheels?

Wrap them in plastic wrap and place them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They should keep for up to 3 days in the fridge.

How do I Pack Them For Lunches and Travel?

Wrap them in a paper towel first to soak up any moisture, then wrap in plastic wrap and place them in a storage container so they don’t get crushed. They’ll need to stay cold, so if you won’t be able to refrigerate them immediately, be sure to use an ice pack.
