St. Patrick’s Day Pinwheels


Whether you’re hosting a St. Patty’s Day party or attending someone else’s get-together, you’re going to want to make a festive appetizer. The best appetizers for this holiday are green, considering green is the primary colour associated with Ireland. These pinwheels are made with spinach tortillas and have green ingredients in the filling which makes them perfect for the occasion. For convenience they can be made ahead and then cut into rounds for serving. These are easy, delicious and festive!
