This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Shamrock Farms. The opinions and text are all mine.
Back to school means school lunches, after school snacks and easy dinners. This year my son is in 8th grade and made the school’s volleyball team which means practices and games most nights of the week in addition to homework and other school activities. As a self-employed single mom, I’m busy. Simple meals are a huge win for me. Salsa Chicken Pinwheels with Dipping Sauce are super easy, can be made ahead and easy to grab for a meal on the go making it perfect for school lunches, after school snacks or dinner on the go.
Meals with dipping sauces are always popular with kids. dip, dip, dip for the win.
We love Shamrock Farms. My son is a HUGE fan of their chocolate milk. Shamrock Farms recently changed the packaging of their sour cream but its the same great taste and quality we love. The smooth and creamy texture is perfect for making dips or as toppings (like baked potatoes, yum!) and we always keep it stocked in the fridge. Look for the NEW green lid in your local dairy case.
Salsa Chicken Pinwheels with Dipping Sauce
The first step is to make the chicken in the pressure cooker. Instant Pot for the win. Fast and easy as you just throw everything in, set the timer and walk away. Cook the chicken in the pressure cooker with the salsa and seasoning.
Shred the chicken once it is finished cooking. Take a tortilla and add lettuce, cheese, and chicken. Roll the tortilla tightly and secure with a few toothpicks. Use a serrated knife and slice the tortilla to make pinwheels and secure with toothpicks.
Bonus tip – make extra chicken and freeze in portions.
Make the dipping sauce by mixing the salsa, sour cream, and lime juice. Top with fresh-cut cilantro.
Bonus tip – portion the sauce into individual mini containers, enough for a few days and store in the fridge.
I use bento-style storage containers for lunches, after school snacks, and on the go dinners. The sections work great for dips and are easy to throw in the dishwasher. During sports season I find myself often eating dinner on the sidelines and try to bring my own food from home instead of grabbing fast food on the way. Much healthier and saves money too.
