Hey friends! Get ready to print (or pin) this recipe! It’s one of my major go-to’s for an appetizer! I legit make this at least a dozen times throughout the year! Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies, so I was so happy to find this asparagus appetizer when my mom shared this recipe with me!

These Asparagus Rolls are the perfect make ahead appetizer too! It has such a great presentation, with the green asparagus and red craisins! Perfect anytime of the year, but it is especially my favorite for the Holiday Season!

A delicious pinwheel asparagus appetizer that everyone will love!
Prep Time30 mins
Servings: 12


  • 4 Large Tortillas
  • Large bunch of asparagus approx 20
  • 2 Large Cans of Chicken or 2-3 shredded breasts
  • 1/2 C. Chopped Nuts
  • 1/2 C. Craisins
  • 4 oz of Regular Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 container or so of Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Mayo
  • Garlic Powder


  • If you are cooking chicken breasts, get them cooked and shredded.
  • Cook your asparagus to preferred state - You will want it a little crunchy!
  • Chop your nut of choice.
  • Combine the chicken, nuts, Craisins, Regular Cream Cheese, Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese, Mayo and Garlic Powder and mix by hand or in a mixer.
  • Judge the taste to your preference.
  • Adjust the amount of Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese and Garlic powder if needed. I like mine to have a little bit stronger taste.
  • Strain the cooked asparagus good.
  • Spread the chicken mixture evenly on a tortilla.
  • Place the already cooked asparagus on the edge of the tortilla and roll the tortilla around the asparagus one turn.
  • Place another asparagus on the tortilla and roll again.
  • Repeat until the tortilla is all the way rolled. I usually fit 4-5 asparagus, per tortilla.
  • Cover the rolled tortilla in plastic wrap or Press N' Seal.
  • Refrigerate for 3-4 hours or overnight.
  • To speed up the process, you can freeze for the first hour. Then cut the asparagus rolls into 1/2" (or so) pieces!

When you remove them from the fridge, unwrap them and cut them up in 1/2″-3/4″ thick (or so) pieces.  The ends will be ugly when you cut them off, so if you’re like me… you just eat them right then and there!  hehe 🙂  It’s my favorite part!
