You might as well print out this recipe and add it to your “family favorites” file, because once your family dives into this delicious Spicy Texas Pinwheel Meal, they’re going to ask for it weekly until they all grow up and move out. This is also an excellent party food, or snack food for football parties.
1 cup shredded chicken
8 ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese
4 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup of Texas Pepper Jelly’s Apple Habanero Rib Candy
1/3 cup of ranch dressing
1/4 cup of shredded, peeled apple
1/4 cup of water chestnuts, sliced thin
1/3 cup of mushrooms, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup of pimentos, drained thoroughly
1 rectangle-shaped pizza dough, home-made or store-bought (also works with pie crust or biscuit dough)
What to do:
Preheat your oven to 425.
On a well-floured surface (I use my table top) roll the pizza dough into a long rectangular shape. Round won’t work.
Mix together the Ranch dressing and Rib Candy, and brush across the dough. Add all of the other ingredients, except the cheese, and spread these over entire surface of dough. Cover with both cheeses.
Begin rolling the dough; go slowly, or you’ll push the chicken mixture to one end. Roll this dough as if it were cinnamon bread! Once rolled, tuck in the ends so the middle doesn’t leak out in your oven.
Spray a rectangular baking sheet with Canola spray, and place the bread on the pan. Lift it with both hands!
Bake for 20 minutes; check to make sure it’s done. If it seems “raw,” return to oven and bake another 10 minutes.
Let it set up for 15 minutes, slice, and enjoy. It’s really pretty when it’s cut into individual slices! Don’t make the slices too thin or you’ll lose the contents. Don’t count on any leftovers, although if by some remote chance you have some, wrap them in foil and freeze. This Pinwheel Meal is even better with a little time on it. The problem is slapping everybody’s hands away from that last piece so YOU can eat it later!
