Why You Will Love This Recipe

I have found an amazing spinach artichoke dip recipe and have made quite the mini collection of spinach and artichoke recipes.  All inspired by the dip with some tweaks here and there. 

These Spinach Artichoke Dip Pinwheels highlight those classic dip flavors in a fun finger food. 

I love making these for game day or entertaining.  These have also been incredibly popular with all of you!

There are some classic flavors that are popular with most people, and spinach artichoke is definitely one of those! Anytime I see a spinach artichoke dip or recipe, everyone seems to get so excited!

By using these familiar flavors, and in a recipe that is so well balanced, you will have a hit!

When I made these the first time for some friends that came over, they were completely inhaled!

Ingredients Needed

This is what you need to make this pinwheel appetizer:

  • Tortillas
  • Cream Cheese
  • Spinach (fresh or frozen)
  • Artichoke Hearts
  • Sour Cream (or plain Greek yogurt)
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt

If you can find them, I love to use spinach tortilla wraps for this recipe to enhance the flavors! Sometimes the flavors are only in the “wrap” versions of tortillas, which as really just larger and thinner than the burrito tortillas.

Instruction Overview

To make the Spinach Artichoke Dip Pinwheels, simply mix the ingredients together and spread them over the flour tortillas.  Roll the tortillas up tightly and freeze for 10 minutes.

This freezing step makes them easier to slice and keeps the slices sharp and clean.  Alternatively, you can refrigerate them far in advance to set up and be ready to go when needed. Then slice and serve immediately. 

I am definitely a sauce person which goes for creamy things like these Spinach Artichoke Dip Pinwheels as well.  So I like a good layer of the cream cheese dip mixture on the tortillas. 

If you prefer less dip, the mixture will go further and could easily cover 4 large flour tortillas, which also means twice the number of pieces!

I only had one person ever say they wanted less filling, so when in doubt, go big and with a thick layer!

Modifications and Substitutions

If you want more heat, add more red pepper flakes.

You can use any size flour tortilla, but you will get a better yield from larger tortillas as there is less waste from the ends.

Do not bother spreading the filling mixture to the ends (left and right side) of the roll up as they will just be cut off! Although they do make great snacks!

Kim’s Tips

Chilling is key! It makes it SO much easier to cut them!

Use a spinach flavored tortilla if you want the green tortilla color!

Make sure to drain the spinach and artichoke hearts if they are frozen and/or in an oil as the extra moisture leads to a soggy roll up!


What is pinwheel sandwich made of?

This pinwheel is made with tortillas, cream cheese, artichoke hearts, spinach, sour cream, parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, and salt.
The key component is the tortilla that fillings are wrapped inside of to make the pinwheel shape.

Can I make cold pinwheels the day before?

These roll ups hold very well when made in advance.
You can slice them in advance, or leave them in logs and slice when ready to serve.

Why are my pinwheels soggy?

This happens if there is too much liquid in the filling and/or if they are made far in advance.
This recipe uses a thick filling so they will not be soggy if used within 48 hours.

  • Mix all of the ingredients except the tortillas together in a small bowl.
    8 ounces cream cheese, 1 cup frozen chopped spinach, 1/2 cup artichoke hearts, 1/4 cup sour cream, 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Spread the mixture evenly over the flour tortillas. Make the dip layer as thick or thin as you would like (I like a thick layer shown in the pictures which used two tortillas).
    2 large flour tortillas
  • Roll up the tortilla rather tightly.
  • Place the rolled tortillas in the freezer for approximately 10 minutes. This helps solidify the dip, making them easier to cut and also cut more cleanly.
  • Cut the tortilla logs into 1/2 inch thick slices. Serve immediately.


I like a thick layer of filling as shown in the pictures.  If you prefer a thinner filling ratio, you will need more tortillas and will get more pieces as well.
To make ahead, roll the tortillas up and place the logs in the refrigerator.  Move them to the freezer (if the cream cheese mixture is really soft) and proceed from step 4 when ready to serve.

    Excellent! Added shredded carrots, celery, green onions. Next time I would 3x or 4x the recipe for a party. They go fast! I also added 1/4 pkt of ranch dressing mix.

    I’m always on the lookout for quick and tasty veggie recipes like this. They would make a great snack and also be lovely to have for lunch with a side salad.

  3. 5 stars
    These were really good! I used small spinach and Herb tortillas instead of the large ones which made more!!! I added extra Parmesan cheese, a whole can of chopped artichoke hearts, green onions, extra garlic powder and a half packet of Knorr Vegetable soup mix. I like spicy so next time I’ll add more pepper flakes!

  4. Is the nutritional information listed representative of each of the 24 pieces? Wanting to truths but hoping itbworkscwith my keto – TIA

    • Hi Mattie,

      Yes it is the estimate per piece assuming it is portioned exactly as written. If you use a keto friendly tortilla, I am sure the carb information would drop.

  5. The recipe calls for flour tortillas, yet in the picture they look green. Are they really flour tortillas or something else?

  6. 5 stars
    So easy to make and such a huge favorite. They are gone in 5 minutes. I’ve used spinach tortillas and flour tortilla both tasted great

  7. I’m looking to make these for a party but can’t get the math to work out on the servings. If you use a large tortilla (which is 10″) and you cut off the ends and discard (I assume no more than an inch on each end), there would be 8″ remaining which would make 16 pinwheels. Then times 2 tortillas, that’s 32 pinwheels. Am I missing something or did you use smaller tortillas than 10″?

    • Hi Marcy,
      I used very large wrap size tortillas, larger than burritos. You can use any size tortilla you want to get what you need.
