  • For the first three pinwheels: Place the tortillas on a large cutting board. Add the spreadable ingredient (hummus, cream cheese or pesto to each tortilla, spreading into an even layer all over the surface of the tortilla.
  • Divide any of the remaining ingredients evenly between each tortilla, layering them in the center of the tortilla.
  • For the chicken salad pinwheel: Place the tortillas on a large cutting board. Add four leaves of butter lettuce to each tortilla. In a medium bowl, combine chicken, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, dill, Dijon, celery, salt and pepper. Stir until all of the chicken is evenly coated with the yogurt mixture. Add half of the prepared chicken salad on top of each, spreading it into an even layer.
  • To roll the pinwheels: Take the bottom portion of the tortilla, and fold it about ⅔ of the way up and over the vegetables. Using your fingers, pull back on the folded over portion of the tortilla to create the start of a tight spiral.
