  • 2 8-ounce packages cream cheese softened to room temperature
  • 1 packet ranch seasoning
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup chopped deli ham
  • 5 x 8-inch large wheat tortillas


  • In a bowl, combine softened cream cheese with ranch seasoning and cheddar cheese.
  • Divide the mixture between 5 tortillas, spreading it to the edges. Sprinkle with ⅕ th of the chopped ham. Roll each tortilla up tightly. Wrap each roll with plastic wrap and chill for 1-2 hours.
  • When ready to serve, slice the ham and cheese rolls into ½-1 inch rounds or pinwheels.


  • Make ahead: You can make these the day before. I suggest waiting to slice the rolled tortillas into pinwheels until just before serving though.
  • Add Veggies: Fresh vegetables diced finely will add color and flavor to your ranch cream cheese. Try cucumbers, carrots, or broccoli.
  • Switch the Cheese: Swiss cheese is always tasty with ham. You could try mozzarella or Colby Jack too. Really, any type of shredded cheese you have in the fridge will probably taste great. 
  • Try Pickles: Diced dill pickles or sliced green olives are a tasty addition to ham and cheese pinwheels. Be sure to dry them on paper towels so that things don’t get soggy
