I love wraps. I used to really love Subway’s wraps because they used this really thin, pliable, tasty tortilla that I just love. They were so chewy and delicious. This is a good stand-by when you’re in a rush and need a quick dinner. Wraps are so fun! You can put just about anything in them, just like omelets. Heck, you could even throw your leftover omelet in there. I always try to keep tortillas in the house. Sometimes I make them, and sometimes I buy them. It’s really easy to make your own. But for the sake of time, I used these tortillas from Kroger to make up some simple and delicious turkey wrap with bacon and guacamole!
Turkey Wrap Ingredients
All you need is tortillas, lettuce, chili sauce, sliced turkey, bacon bits, tomato, and avocado. If you don’t have chili sauce, you can substitute taco sauce. You could even use salsa in a pinch. I’m always using salsa for substitutions. You can use whatever type of tortillas you want, just make sure that they’re the big ones (for burritos). If you buy the little ones, you won’t be able to roll them up as well…and really, if you’re going to eat a tortilla, why not do it right?
Now we’re going to make a guacamole sauce. You can go HERE to read about making homemade guacamole. That post will also tell you how to get the pit out of your avocado. Mush up your avocado and add the chili sauce and garlic salt. Mix it up and we’re ready to roll! Ha, ha! Ready to roll…get it? Warm your tortillas up a bit. Why? Because if you don’t, they won’t roll up; they’ll just crack. Say no to crack. Spread a thin layer of the avocado stuff on there, right in the middle.
Let’s Get Wrapping
Now lay some turkey on top. If you have leftover turkey from another meal, you can use that…or chicken. It doesn’t have to be turkey. We just like turkey in my house.
Now, don’t judge me but I used bacon bits I purchased. Yes, I realize that I could have fried my own bacon and made my own bacon bits…but here’s the truth. I forgot to get the bacon out of the freezer. And then I just didn’t feel like frying up a pan of bacon. I was tired. I had cooked all day. So, processed delicious bacon bits it was! And in my defense, I did use the REAL ones. However, I do like the fake ones too. Barry says he likes those best.
Next we need to layer on some tomatoes. Once again, you could substitute salsa if you don’t have tomatoes on hand. I had just been to the produce market, so that’s why I had some. And let’s face it – tomatoes aren’t that great in the winter. I’m just here to state the obvious.
I piled on the lettuce. Barry loves lettuce. I think he might be part rabbit. You could leave the lettuce out if eating it is against your child’s religion.
How to Fold a Wrap
First, you fold in the top and bottom part of the tortilla and hold it with your hand like so.
Now, bring one side over toward the middle and hold it there too.
Holding over the side you just brought in, roll up the tortilla toward the side that’s still open. Viola! You made a wrap!
If you want to get all professional, just take a serrated knife and half the wrap so that you can see all the pretty insides. Delicious! The bacon really does something special in this wrap. But seriously, when doesn’t bacon do something special? Just the word bacon makes me drool. Quick and easy and your family is tickled pink. Bacon. Give these turkey wraps (with a little extra somethin’) a try!
