Jalapeno Cream Cheese Pinwheel Poppers

As you can see from my picture I didn’t do a very good job of rolling my pinwheels. I was running out of time. My guest were about to start arriving and needed to move quickly. These turned out fantastic, but they were super-hot. I think next time I would cut the amount of jalapenos in half. If you like spicy hot then you will love the recipe just the way it is!
  • 1 package Cream Cheese (8 Ounce Package)
  • 4 ounces, weight Canned, Diced Jalapenos (2 ounces for mild)
  •  1 Tablespoon Sugar
  •  8 ounces, weight Tube Refrigerated Crescent Rolls
1.      Preheat oven 375 degrees F.
2.     Add cream cheese into a bowl along with diced jalapenos, and sugar.
3.     Take your fork and mash it all up really well. Be sure to incorporate all that sugar in really well and set side.
4.     Open up your tube of crescent rolls and place on your cutting board. 
5.     Separate them into two rectangles. Now pinch together the perforations to create two nice rectangles. 
6.     With the back of your spoon, spread half of the cream cheese mixture onto one of the rectangles. Save the other half of the mixture for the other rectangle. (You will have two rectangles per tube of crescent rolls.)
7.     Spread your half portion of cream cheese on one of your rectangles, start with the long end of the roll, and get to rolling. Once it’s all rolled up, you will need to cut your log into 16 pinwheels.
8.     Get a sharp knife and cut into 16 pieces.  Place each pinwheel on a baking sheet
9.     Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

  1. Hey – I know your blog seems to be used mostly for recipes with some of the weight loss challenge stuff mixed in. Can I request that you post the nutrition facts for the recipes you're putting up? Some look good but I'm guessing they're not in the realm of what I should be eating – I'd love to have that information first hand!!!


  2. Erin, it's very easy to figure out how many calories are in any recipe. You can use I don't always have time to look for recipe, but if I have time I will add the calories. -Jessica they are perfect for superbowl! – Thanks Debbi they were excellent!!


  3. These sound marvelous. This is my first visit to your blog, so I took some time to browse through your earlier posts. I'm so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary
