Turkey Wraps


  • 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)

  • Directions
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
