Healthy Southwestern Pinwheels are the perfect appetizer for summertime parties and they even make for a fun lunch or snack idea. These crowd pleasers are super yummy, easy to make and can even be prepared ahead of time.
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.

Serve these at your summer gathering or cookout – all of your friends will gobble them up. I promise, you can’t eat just one!
Healthy Southwestern Pinwheels
- 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.

This looks yummy unfortunately avacado is unavailable where I live . Can I reolace avocado with sime thing elaw 🤔
That’s too bad, but you can just leave it out. Another idea would be to use drained black beans or any other favorite southwestern ingredient.
