If food could be represented by seasons, these Cheesy Jalapeno Bacon Pinwheels would totally represent Spring. They’re light, crisp and absolutely delicious. I bet you can’t eat just one! I know I couldn’t.

Cheesy Jalapeno Bacon Pinwheels

This week our tiny island in Alaska has finally started to warm up. Since daylight savings time, we have about 12 hours of daylight and we’re gaining 6 minutes of sunlight a day. When the sun doesn’t set until 8:30 (soon it’ll be midnight), there is always time to have a cookout. We had a week of sunny, 40 degree weather last week, which felt like a heatwave after the crazy high winds and cold weather we’ve had lately. So my husband and I decided to invite some friends over and cook out.

Cheesy Jalapeno Bacon Pinwheels

When we’re cooking out, I like to make a lighter side. That’s why I’m such a fan of these Cheesy Jalapeno Bacon Pinwheels! They’re the perfect appetizer to snack on while you’re enjoying drinks on the porch with friends or a delicious side to serve with the main course. Either way you can’t go wrong.

Just imagine Kaukauna® Sharp Cheddar spreadable cheese covering a tortilla and sprinkled generously with diced jalapeno and bacon and wrapped into a pinwheel. These pinwheels are have the perfect amount of crunch from the jalapenos and bacon with the perfect compliment of Kaukauna® sharp cheddar. Kaukauna® is a delicious and easy entertaining solution made with 100% real cheddar and it ties this recipe together perfectly.

When I put the Cheesy Jalapeno Bacon Pinwheels on the table they disappeared so quickly, that I had to go make more! Luckily this recipe is super easy and can be made in less than 5 minutes. I’m a busy Mom, so I live for quick recipes. But Kaukauna® sharp cheddar spreadable cheese makes this pinwheel recipe taste so much richer than a 5 minute recipe.

Kaukauna® spreadable cheese cups come in various flavors and also come in cheese logs and cheese balls. I love picking up a few Kaukauna® products because they help make entertaining so much easier. The best part is everyone loves them! I love adding a Kaukauna® cheeseball to the table surrounded by crackers. It’s the perfect appetizer to place on the table and let your guests pick off of.

You can find Kaukauna® products at your local grocery store in the soft cheese section. There is even an Ibotta offer currently going on! 

Now, onto the recipe!

Cheesy Jalapeno Bacon Pinwheels

All you need are tortilla wraps, Kaukauna® sharp cheddar spreadable cheese cup, diced jalapenos and crumbled bacon. First, generously spread Kaukauna®sharp cheddar spreadable cheese onto your tortilla wrap, then sprinkle the jalapeno and bacon onto the wrap.

Add Kaukauna®sharp cheddar spreadable cheese to a second tortilla wrap and place on top of the first. Then roll the tortillas up and use a sharp knife to cut into pinwheels. 

Slide these delicious babies in front of your guests and watch them disappear. Just make sure you grab one or two for yourself.
