Low Carb Red Pepper and Cream Cheese Pinwheels

Prep Time15 mins
Course: Appetizer
Keyword: cream cheese wraps
Servings: 8 appetizer servings or 4 whole wraps
Calories: 203kcal


  • 4 low carb wraps or tortillas
  • 2/3 cup cream cheese softened, 5oz
  • 1/4 cup full fat sour cream
  • 1-2 tsp red pepper jelly I add up to 2 tbsp if these are for non-keto/low carb guests, red pepper jelly is higher in carbs so just be sure to account for that
  • 5 tbsp cheddar cheese shredded, 2.6oz or 75g
  • 150 g shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2 a large red pepper finely chopped
  • 1-2 large green onions chopped
  • a few red pepper flakes for some spice optional
  • salt/pepper to taste


  • In a bowl, mix together your softened cream cheese, sour cream, red pepper jelly and cheddar cheese.
  • Stir in your chicken, green onion, red pepper, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
  • Mix until thick and well combined. Add more or less salt/pepper and red pepper jelly to taste.
  • Spread 1/4 of the mixture over the middle of each tortilla, roll it up like you would a burrito, folding the sides in while rolling it up (see my tip for helping the wrap stick together better).
  • Wrap each tortilla in saran wrap and place them in a large ziplock bag. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight for best flavour development. (You can also eat these right away if you want!)
  • Slice into pieces and serve chilled! Enjoy your Low Carb Cream Cheese Pinwheels!


  • You can add less red pepper jelly if you want to keep the carbs down but I highly recommend adding more if making it for guests as it adds a really nice punch of flavour!
  • Let your wraps sit, wrapped in Saran Wrap in the fridge overnight for the best flavour! Everything really melds together and the protein wraps start to soften up a bit.
  • The original recipe for these contains lettuce but personally we found it to alway get soggy and detract from the flavour. Feel free to add some greens for health reasons if you are eating the wraps right away and not leaving them in the fridge overnight!
  • These wraps can also be made vegetarian. We've done it before to accommodate some of our guests. Just leave out the chicken and add a bit of extra red pepper..good to go!
  • To help your tortillas hold together, you can spread a small amount of mixture on the edge that you are rolling the wrap towards to help it stick.
