Wrap it Up

I’m a big fan of the wrap persuasion.  Anything you can wrap up…gifts included ;)…is a winner in my book.  When my sweet friend, Dena, posted this recipe…her version of a Paula Deen wrap…I knew I’d love it.  I was right!!  These little wraps pack in BIG taste and are terribly easy to prep.  It’s pretty much the gift that keeps on giving :)  A new family favorite…and by family, I mean me & Mr. Spouse {darn those picky kids!!!!}…for sure!!!


{serves 2}

Lettuce, chopped

Tomatoes, chopped

1 avocado, chopped

5-6 slices of turkey, chopped

2 slices of colby jack cheese, cut into tiny squares

4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled

Ranch dressing, to taste {I use the homemade buttermilk ranch dressing from the Hidden Valley ranch packets}

Flour tortillas {I used Mission Sun Dried Tomato Basil Wraps as suggested by Dena…SO good!!!!}


Here’s what you’ll need…


Now let’s get to choppin’.  Honestly, this is one of those recipes where you can add as much or as little as you wish…whatever your taste buds prefer.  Chop your lettuce, tomato, avocado, cheese, turkey, & bacon and add to a large bowl.


Now it’s time to pour in the ranch.  Again, add to taste…however much or little your heart desires.  I prefer the homemade buttermilk ranch…y’know, the kind you make with the Hidden Valley ranch packets.  Pour into bowl and mix until well blended.

Spread the mixture down the center of the tortilla/wrap and roll it up {jelly roll style}.  Make sure to place on your plate seam side down so it stays closed and all the insides stay nice and cozy all wrapped up. 


These are the tortillas Dena suggested and ohmiword…they were pretty dang tasty. I definitely think it kicks the taste up a notch or two.  I think homemade flour tortillas would be pretty darn good, too.


Basically, one of the easiest, tastiest, QUICKEST recipes I’ve tried!!!  When we first had these little gems, one of Mr. Spouse’s friends came over for dinner.  He absolutely LOVED these and raved about them every time he came over after that night.  He keeps asking me when I plan on making more because he’ll be sure to invite himself over for dinner ;)  If you’re looking for something quick, easy, and delicious, don’t wait another day to try these out!!!  SO good!!!
