We make this recipe ALL of the time. It is super quick, filling, and tastes incredible. It also got the stamp of approval from my picky eater, which instantly places it in our top ten.

Why I love wraps: You can customize them, sneak some veggies into your diet, and everyone ends up happy. 

These are ideal for picnics, packed lunch, or a quick weeknight dinner. 

Easy Turkey Wrap

Easy Wrap Recipe Ingredients:

The ingredients listed below are what we decided to put into our wraps. I will mention, my son does not care for avocado, but we left it inside his wrap. He didn’t even notice it was there. 

  • Cream Cheese- We have made this with both regular cream cheese AND cream cheese with chives. The later tends to be the family favorite. 
  • Dijon mustard- Dijon has a deeper flavor than the classic yellow mustard. Paired with the cream cheese, it gives you the most incredible spread base for your wrap. Spreading this on the tortilla first also helps keep your tortilla from getting soggy.
  • Tortillas- We like to use homemade tortillas, but really and tortilla will work. Many people like to use spinach tortillas for their wraps.
  • Lettuce – Iceberg is the go-to of many, but we prefer romaine. 
  • Turkey- I like to get our turkey from the deli counter. Boars Head is a family favorite (not sponsored, just like the product). It has a great flavor and so many varieties. 
  • Swiss Cheese – Not a fan of Swiss? No problem! Swap it for cheddar. 
  • Tomato- I like to grab fresh tomatoes, if available, or you can pick up on the vine varieties from your grocery store. They tend to be just a tad fresher in the off season.
  • Avocado- Tip: You want your avocado to be slightly firm, but still able to feel a little give when you gently press in with your thumb.
  • Bacon- Thick cut! Try baking in your oven for super quick prep.
  • Salt and pepper

How to make a wrap:

  1. Add the cream cheese and Dijon into a small dish. Stir to combine.
  2. Spread 1-2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture onto each tortilla, spreading 1/4 inch from the edge.
  3. Layer the lettuce, turkey, bacon, Swiss, avocado, and tomato in the bottom third of your tortilla.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Fold, burrito style, being sure to fold in the ends of the tortilla.
  6. Slice in half, slightly diagonal, and serve.

Tips for this recipe:

  • Try to stick with a flour based tortilla. Flour is less likely to crack when rolling unlike it’s cousin the corn tortilla.
  • Keep the spread and ingredients at least 1/4 inch from the edge. We sometimes even keep it 1/2 inch if there are bulk ingredients.

These two basic tips are key. They will help give you prefect wraps every single time!
