Tips to Make the Ranch Cheddar Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels:
- Don't toast Tortillas too Much: If you toast your tortillas too much it will become hard and you will have a hard time rolling them.
- Add Even Filling: You cannot add too much filling nor can you add too little filling. It's all about striking a balance. Too much filling will make it difficult for you to roll and when you cut it the filling will spill over from the sides.
- Don't add bacon if serving later: If you are making this ahead of time and you want to add Bacon then I strongly suggest you not add bacon. Bacon when frozen will taste really bad.
