Tailgate Party Pinwheels
I like the social aspect of football. Going to games with friends, tailgate parties, hanging out afterwards. Don’t ask me what a “down” or a “wide-receiver” is…. But I CAN tell you what to serve at your next football party! Of course my party would be a little more health-ified than most. Seems like the staples for football get-togethers are wings, nachos, and junk junk junk food. You are SPECTATORS. You’re not doing any work by watching someone else play their sport! There’s no need to EAT like a football player :P
You’ve probably seen these tortilla pinwheels before. Usually they are laden with hidden fats in the form of mayonnaise, cream cheese, or salami. My make-over recipe takes out the crap and turns them into a healthy and colorful appetizer for a group. The secret: hummus spread!
Start off with this hummus recipe. Allow it to refrigerate for a few hours before making the pinwheels though.
8 Whole wheat wraps
Homemade Hummus (see above)
1/2 purple onion, sliced
4 handfuls Baby Spinach
1 tomato, diced
24 slices 98% fat-free, thin-sliced turkey
- Spread hummus onto a wrap.
- Add onion, spinach, and tomatoes evenly. Top with turkey slices. Roll up and secure with 5 toothpicks:
- Slice in between each toothpick. (The ends will just be scraps.)
Bring on the football boys game!
