You guys don’t even know how excited I am to get this summer started. For one, summer has always been my favorite season – August is my birthday month and I’m all about beach vacations. But more importantly, this year, I can’t wait for the school season to be over and done with, so I can officially focus on Kim’s Cravings full time.
Wahoo… only 5 more work days for me and I will be a full time blogger, recipe creater, food photographer, and the list goes on!
You better believe, I’ll be pulling out all the stops to make this summer one to remember.

To take the flavor and texture of this classic recipe to a whole new level, I used two of my all-time favorite ingredients – RO*TEL® and avocado slices.
I grabbed both up at Walmart, while completing my weekly grocery haul. The RO*TEL is located near other canned tomato products.
These layered Southwestern Pinwheels could not be easier – follow along below and I’ll show you exactly what I’m talking about.

Healthy Southwestern Pinwheels are great appetizers for a party, or a fun lunch idea. They're so yummy, easy to make and you can even prepare them ahead of time.
- 4 large tortillas
- 1/2 cup black bean hummus or refried beans, divided
- 1/2 ripe avocado , finely sliced or diced, divided
- 1/4 cup red onion, finely diced, divided
- 1/2 cup RO*TEL, excess liquid drained, divided
- 1/2 cup grated Mexican (or chedder) cheese, divided
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped, divided
Lay tortillas flat and spread with a layer of black bean hummus or refried beans.
Next top tortillas with avocado, onion, RO*TEL, grated cheese and cilantro.
Use the back of a spoon or spatula to flatten ingredients down to make it easier to roll. Next, tightly roll tortilla and place seam side down.
Use a very sharp or serrated knife to cut into 1/2-inch slices (about 5/tortilla).
Once you've completed the process with tortillas, you should have about 20 pinwheels, depending on the size of your tortillas.
Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
For a vegan and/or gluten-free version, use gluten-free and/or vegan tortillas and dairy-free cheese or leave the cheese out.
