What you’ll need for all of these pinwheels are tortilla shells – whole wheat, multi-grain, spinach, corn… your choice. Just be careful of GMO’s please! There are actually several homemade tortilla shell recipes I’ve come across on the web, but I’ve never tried making any yet. It’s on my HUGE to-do list! – and healthy toppings – chopped so you can roll your shell up easily.
