Red Pepper Cheesy Pinwheels


The Holidays are in full swing, and I am always trying to keep affordable, easy appetizer ingredients on hand. You never know who may pop in!  There are only so many times you can make spinach artichoke dip before you start looking for something new. I hit up Target this week and took A Little Help for the Holidays from Kraft with these Kraft Coupons.

Right now you can save up to $20 on participating Kraft Products, only at Target when you print these Kraft Coupons from I stocked up on Kraft® Shredded Cheese, Capri Sun® Juice Drink,  Planters® Peanut Butter and more!

I then decided to whip up a batch of these Red Pepper Cheesy Pinwheels for a snack for the hubby and I. They are super easy and only take a few minutes to toss together. Basically you mix together the cream cheese, cheese, seasonings, and red peppers. Spread the dip over a sheet of thawed puff pastry, roll, slice and bake!
