Reviews for Veggie Ranch Tortilla Pinwheels
"I switched this up a little by eliminating the red pepper and bacon bits, substituting chopped pimientos and real bacon cooked on the stove. I also used half the ranch packet based on other reviews and refrigerated them overnight before slicing. That refrigerating really gave the flavors time to meld and the filling was, to me better for it. I made them for a work pot-luck, and they were gone in 15 minutes! Definitely a hit!"
"These are very good. I made them for my sisters party. Her and my niece are vegetarians so I omitted the bacon. I also added shredded cheddar cheese."
"Theses are delicious and disappear rapidly. The only change I made was to cook my own bacon, drain and break it up. Sometimes bacon bits have hard little bits I find off putting."
"I love appetizers like this. These roll ups are very tasty. I chopped up turkey bacon and cooked it, adding it to the rolls instead of bacon bits. Very good!! I think this recipe would be easy to add and take away from, adding a different type of pepper, or even adding some deli meat. Highly recommend, I could not stop eating them as I was making them!!"
"I absolutely love these. A tad labor-intensive, but well-worth it! I always leave out the green chilies (personal preference), and they're always good."
"They totally disappeared! I waited until theywere cooled in the refrigerator before tryingto cut them."
"Recipe is simple and tastes good. When I make this again, and I will, I will add less of the ranch dressing. It was a little overpowering. Also, I am going to add thin sliced of proscuitto to each tortilla after adding the cream cheese mixture and before rolling. I think that would be great combination."
"Isn't this recipe from the Hidden Valley Ranch cookbook? The only difference that I can see is the addition of bacon bits. I just made it a few weeks ago.Please give credit to sources."
"RENEEKLEIN is right on the money. This recipe needs CHEESE!!!! I think I'll try pepperjack."
"This recipe was missing something for me. I found them rather bland and off putting. If I make them again I think I'll put on a layer of smoked turkey or maybe some crab meat and SALT!!"
"The best yet"
"Simply,easy to change also good with dried beef and add velvetta cheese !"
"Easy, awesome flavor, and pretty, a real crowd pleaser, make quite a few for little cost."
"You can also change this up a little... same idea using taco seasoning instead of ranch with shredded cheese, olives and red peppers. I add a side of salsa..."
"Delicious, made mine without bacon."
"These are fantastic-kids like them too. I use 1 light (Neufchatel) cream cheese and 1 cup light sour cream."
"My niece brought these to our pot luck and they were a big hit. Very tasty and colorful with the sweet pepper and olives. I'm going to make them for another get together next week."
