Tortilla Roll-Ups/Pinwheels

These saucy chicken tortillas are perfect for any party or get-together. Made with mouthwatering fried chicken filling and a flavorful mayo-tahini sauce which is rolled in soft tortillas, they’ll definitely be a favorite!
I’m a big fan of anything with tortillas…burritos, quesadillas, wraps and now this roll ups/pinwheels. This is amazing as you can make this ahead of time, change up the flavors by adding any fixings of your choice and can make them in no time at all.
Hope you will give this recipe a try, it will definitely be a hit!
