Made this for a wedding of 120; next time I will leave out the water chestnuts as they made holes in the tortillas when rolling. Excellent taste and it is important to use the various colors in the tortillas to make an impact on your table. Also, cut them into 4" rolls and cut them in half on the diagonal. You can stand them up on the flat end and they look marvelous!!!
These are delicious, but quite messy to cut. If not for that, they would easily get five stars here. Made for our family Christmas party using spinach tortillas which paired perfectly with the dip. I'll make them again & experiment with how much to spread on each and if there's an easier way to cut them. Yummy though!
Makes a great tasty snack!
A good idea for spinach dip if you have a bit more time to make the rolls and want to cut up. I used spinach tortillas and also whole wheat lavash bread. I liked the sturdiness of the lavash bread, so it rolled up and refreigerated more nicely. The rectangle shape also makes cutting easier. The spinach tortillas were kind of soft, so didn't refrigerate into a nice circle (one side flat) and kind of soggy overall with the spinach dip. Both worked well, so it's a matter of preference if you like softer/soggier rolls or sturdier rolls. I had some trouble rolling it tightly with the tortialls, but not with the lavash bread. I also found it hard to find the right amount of filling to put inside - that is another preference if you like more spinach dip or more bread as you eat it.
Great idea instead of the bread bowl. Instead of the water chestnuts, I add 8 oz imitation crab, finely chopped.
These were a big hit at the potluck I brought them to. I substituted 1.5 cups of nonfat plain yogurt and .5 cups light mayo for the regular sour cream and mayo. (I was thinking of the recipe on the back of the Knorr package, which called for only 8oz sour cream as many other have also mentioned.) I minced a clove of garlic into the dip, and I also subbed chives for the green onions. I saw another recipe for a very similar spinach dip (without the pinwheel idea) that called for Knorr Leek recipe mix instead of the Vegetable, and I wanted to try that, but I looked in two local grocery stores and could only get the vegetable. I found some of the veggie dip flavor a bit overpowering, so I think I might prefer the Leek if I can ever find it. I'll also add the suggestion that if you can find rectangular lavash flatbreads, they are a better shape for rolling since you don't have to trim off the ends. I used a variety of wraps and flatbreads (rather than acutal tortillas) and they were all yummy! Thanks for a wonderful party recipe idea!
This was a nice alternative to the standard way of serving spinach dip. I especially liked the inclusion of green onions to the mix. Thanks for posting, Charmie777!
A hit for Thanksgiving. Interesting comment from my adult son - he felt he liked these roll ups because they did not have cream cheese in the filling. The younger kids were eating these right along with the adults - so it is a crowd pleaser. A sincere thank-you for sharing!
These are very good. A bit messy, but worth it. Easy to make also. Thanks, Charmie!
Made these for a church tea party. They were very easy to make and well recieved by the guests. I have also made them at home and added black olives and spouts and we ate them between softball games. The girls liked this for a change of pace. I chop the water chestnuts extra fine and had no trouble with tearing the tortilla. Thank you for posting.
