Sesame Omelet Spinach Spirals Recipe

These pretty spirals would be perfect for a buffet of international hors d'oeuvres. They remind me of sushi. The dipping sauce is an exotic accompaniment to this fun finger food.—Roxanne Chan, Albany, California

  • 4 tablespoons tahini
  • 4 spinach tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons each finely chopped green onion, sweet red pepper and canned water chestnuts

"The spinach component of this recipe is the tortillas. However, if you wanted to add a bit of fresh spinach on top of the cooked omelet before rolling it up, it would work fine.
