Total Time 20 minutes



  • 1 package gluten-free tortillas
  • 4 leaves romaine lettuce or collard greens stemmed shaved
  • Flour tortillas
  • Homemade Tortillas

Spread Ideas:

  • 1/2 cup hummus
  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • 1/2 cup Dietz & Watson whole-grain mustard

Meat Ideas:

  • 1 pound organic turkey breast
  • 1 pound sliced pepperoni
  • 1 pound sliced salami
  • 1 pound shredded rotisserie chicken
  • Sliced chicken breasts

Veggie Ideas:

  • Shredded lettuce
  • Tomatoes sliced thin
  • Cucumbers sliced thin
  • Alfalfa sprouts
  • Spinach more as needed
  • 1 avocado thinly sliced
  • 1 red onion sliced thin
  • 1 eggplant sliced into rounds and grilled
  • 1 zucchini or yellow squash sliced into rounds and grilled

Other Add-Ins:

  • Bacon cooked
  • Cheese sliced or shredded
  • Pickled jalapeños
  • Sliced pickled pepperocini
  • Black beans drained and rinsed
  • Roasted red peppers sliced
  • Sundried Tomatoes sliced


  • Place lettuce leaves, collard leaves, or tortillas of choice on a flat surface.
  • Spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons of your spread of choice onto the middle of your wrap.
  • Add a few slices of meat and/or veggies on top of the spread in a straight line along the stem of the lettuce wrap or the long side of the tortilla.
  • Lift the side of the tortilla closest to you and roll, using your fingers to make sure none of the filling falls out. If making a lettuce wrap, the stem should span the length of the whole roll. Before closing the roll, place a teaspoon of spread on the edge of the wrap. This will help the wrap stay together. Roll as tightly as possible for best results.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut the wrap into 1-inch pieces.
  • Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve!


You can use a toothpick to help the pinwheels stay together if they start to fall apart!
