A fun way to roll - Nacho Pinwheels

I know it's a little late but this would make a great Super Bowl finger food. It's pretty quick & easy to make too.

I tried this recipe I found on the Betty Crocker website for some pinwheel type rolls. They are meant to be a Mexican side dish, but I think they are something that could be made for many different purposes. I made them to go along with a chicken dish tonight and we ate them without the salsa & sour cream. This is a versatile recipe - you could roll just about anything in it! I'm planning on making pepperoni pinwheels next time. I actually halved this recipe tonight and it made plenty for our family of 3!
Nacho Pinwheels adapted from Betty Crocker

3 cups Bisquick mix
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
(I also added some garlic powder)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
2/3 cup water (I used half milk)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Heat oven to 425. Grease cookie pan with spray or shortening. In a large bowl, stir Bisquick mix, chili powder, oregano, garlic and water until soft dough forms. (may need to add extra water to get the dough the right consistency) Place dough on surface sprinkled with Bisquick mix or flour. Gently roll to coat and shape into ball. Knead 10 times.

Roll dough into 18x10 rectangle (be sure to use your tape rule! :)) Brush butter over dough. Sprinkle with cheese. Roll up rectange tightly, beginning with the long side. Pinch edge to seal. Cut in to 1" slices. Place on cookie sheet.
Bake 11-13 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with salsa and sour cream.


  1. They look delicious! I wonder if you could use crescent rolls, pinched together, to get a similar taste. Will have to try this out!

  2. Thank you for sharing!!! We tried these last night and enjoyed them. We used pizza sauce to dip ours in and they were good that way too.


I love hearing from you beautiful readers! Leave some love!
