I was trying to decide what to do with fresh raspberries for an appetizer when this idea just came to me. It’s easy to make and something that you can make a day ahead if you want. In fact, I would recommend making them a day ahead so that you give the flavors time to marry. Enjoy!
RASPBERRY, BACON & BLUE CHEESE PINWHEELS
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
¼ cup whole raspberries, chopped
¼ cup chopped green onion
3-4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
¼ cup blue cheese crumbles
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh spinach leaves
Mix the cream cheese, raspberries, green onions, bacon, blue cheese, salt, and pepper in a bowl until well combined. Spread a tortilla with the mixture.
Lay spinach leaves in a single layer on top of the cream cheese mixture. Roll up the tortilla lengthwise, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1-2 hours, or overnight.
Repeat with remaining cream cheese mixture and tortillas. When ready to serve, unwrap the tortillas and slice crosswise.
