Turkey Wraps

these are so easy to do and perfect for a crowd.



tortillas, turkey (or whatever kind of meat you like), cheese, lettuce, tomato, and cream cheese (i mix in a 1/2 of packet of ranch dip mix with my cream cheese for more flavor)

the easiest way to do this is to lay all the tortillas out in a assembly line. spread some of the cream cheese mix on each tortilla to lightly cover the whole tortilla


shred your cheddar cheese and put it on next (not to much just a light covering) then top with lunch meat


next put some thinly sliced tomato, and lettuce on top and your ready to roll


roll up tightly (sometimes you can add a little smidgen of cream cheese at the end to seal the wrap closed) then wrap in saran wrap and refrigerate for a hour or so. i roll one up then put the next one down and roll it once until they are all rolled in the same long strip so they aren't touching.


when ready to serve. cut the ends off then slice into smaller slices, you can also serve them like this if you want.

this is my recipe for salsa. it is so good. if you make it and it is too hot just add more tomatoes until it is the mildness you like.

100_2652 100_2292

ingredients: peppers (i use jalapeno, Serrano, and yellow peppers), green onions, cilantro, garlic, whole peeled tomatoes, and salt.

this is so easy and you will never buy the jarred stuff again!

take your chili's and simmer them in a pot with water until tender. cut off the stems once cool and you can discard the seeds if you want (i don't)


put about 4 cloves of garlic in your food processor with all those chili's and pulse until some what smooth. put it in a big bowl


next add the canned whole peeled tomatoes to the food processor and pulse really quickly (maybe 3 seconds) then add them to the bowl


(see how you can still see some of the peppers?, those will all come out with the tomatoes)

next chop your cilantro and green onions and add to the bowl, then add a good dash of salt.


then mix and chill


this makes a lot of salsa! you can do 2 things

  • make half the recipe
  • or make it and freeze it before you add cilantro or green onion and just put it in before you use it.

so yummy! enjoy
