Dinner in Minutes: Quick, flavorful wrap

Mon., June 6, 2011

No need to turn on the stove for this quick Tex-Mex Avocado Wrap . Tomato salsa, avocado and sliced smoked turkey wrapped in a flour tortilla create a simple dinner.

The secret to a good wrap is to moisten the tortilla with a spread or oil. I sprayed the tortillas with olive oil spray, which adds flavor without too much fat.

Flavored tortillas would be perfect for this recipe.

Tex-Mex Avocado Wrap

4 (6-inch) flour tortillas

Olive oil spray

6 ounces sliced smoked turkey breast

1/2 small ripe avocado ( 1/2 cup cubed)

1/2 cup tomato salsa, drained

Several lettuce leaves

Spread tortillas on a work surface and spray with olive oil spray. Divide turkey among tortillas. Peel, seed and cube avocado; spoon over turkey.

Drain salsa and add. Place lettuce on top. Roll up the wraps and cut in half on the diagonal.

Yield: 2 servings.
