Cooking For Two: That's a Wrap!

Wraps are a practical and easy meal when there are few people in the house to feed. All you need are some tortillas and then you can get creative about what you want to put inside!

A variety of meats, veggies and spreads can be used as fillings for wraps. Lunch meats, cheeses and spreads (like mustard and hummus) store well in the fridge and veggies can be chopped and stored in an airtight container.



Wraps are great for an easy, weeknight meal or a quick lunch or afternoon snack.


Below are some of my favorite wrap fillings!

BLT WRAP

Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Ingredients:

4 oz. (1/2 package) reduced fat Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 cup Light Mayonnaise
8 slices of bacon, crumbled (can substitute turkey bacon for less fat)
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
Flour tortillas (choose whole wheat tortillas for more fiber and a great taste!)
1/2 cup shredded romaine lettuce

Directions:

Mix cream cheese and mayo in a bowl until smooth. Add bacon and tomatoes; mix well. Spread mixture onto tortillas and top with romaine lettuce. Roll up tightly. Enjoy! (Leftover filling can be stored in an air-tight container and refrigerated.)
