If you love jalapeno poppers, you will love these easy tortilla pinwheels. They have all the same great flavor but wrapped up in tortillas instead. It’s an easy no-cook appetizer!


  • 1 (8-oz) package cream cheese
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 (2.5-oz) package bacon bits
  • 1 (4-oz) can diced jalapeno
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 (8”) flour tortillas


  1. Mix the cream cheese, sour cream, bacon, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime juice in a bowl with an electric mixer.
  2. Spread ¼ cup of the cream cheese mixture on each flour tortilla. Roll each tortilla up like a jelly roll.
  3. Wrap the rolled tortillas in plastic wrap and refrigerate them for at least two hours or overnight.
  4. Trim the ends of each roll and then slice each with a serrated knife into 8 equal slices.


Cream cheese: If you use an electric mixer to mix the filling, you don’t need to worry about using softened cream cheese. If you want to mix the filling by hand with a spatula, you should use softened cream cheese. Otherwise, it will be really difficult to mix by hand.
