1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese with chives (I used fat-free and added my own chives)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
6 (8 inch) whole wheat tortillas
1 1/2 cups finely shredded iceberg lettuce
12 slices thinly sliced deli turkey
3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese(or any kind of cheese works if you want to get the reduced fat kind)
1 large tomato, seeded and diced-optional
1 large avocado, sliced-optional
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (you can use turkey bacon to cut down on the fat, or just not use bacon)
Mix together the cream cheese and Dijon mustard until smooth. Spread each tortilla with about 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture, spreading to within 1/4 inch of the edge of the tortillas.
Arrange about 1/4 cup of shredded lettuce on each tortilla, and press the lettuce down into the cream cheese mixture. Place 2 turkey slices per tortilla over the lettuce, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of shredded Swiss cheese. Top each tortilla evenly with tomato, avocado slices, and crumbled bacon.
Roll each tortilla up tightly, and cut in half across the middle with a slightly diagonal cut.
I loved these!! These will definitely be something I make more often. Even my hubby who shuns anything healthy enjoyed them =) Another variation is to make it a lettuce wrap. Instead of tortillas, use big pieces of lettuce, put everything on it, and enjoy! Either way, it is a nice healthy lunch/snack. These are also great warmed up a bit to melt the cheese. Also, you can cut them into little pieces and use them as a healthy appetizer.
