Amazing Wraps

Not sure if you have tasted something like this – in terms of wrap… I know I haven’t until I made this one. This idea came to me when I made a big bowl of guacamole and I thought “why not enhance the taste of my turkey wrap?!”

Enhance it did. The plain turkey wraps zing with guacamole, chopped olives and jalapenos. You’re probably thinking… “olives in wraps?” Indeed. I myself was amazed on how all the ingredients blended into one dynamite flavor…

Try it and let me know…

Below is what you need for this wrap… or wraps. You can make up to 8 large wraps, depending on how much guacamole you use. Serves 1 wrap per person or 2 wraps for someone with big appetite.

Spicy Guacamole

3 large ripe avocados

Juice of 1 lime

1 medium size tomato – seeds removed and chopped

1/3 medium onion – finely chopped

1 large jalapeno – seeded and finely chopped

¼ cup cilantro – chopped

2 tsp. coarse sea salt

¼ – ½ tsp. ground black pepper

¼ – ½ tsp. cayenne pepper

¼ – ½ tsp. Spanish paprika

Split avocados in half and remove the seeds. Scope the flesh using a tablespoon into a large mixing bowl. Drizzle lime juice over the avocados. Mash avocados with a potato masher into desired consistency.

Add onion, jalapeno and cilantro into the bowl. Add sea salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and paprika.

Stir until well combined.

Serve with corn tortilla chips or carrot and celery sticks. Also great deli meat wraps.

Warm wraps in an ungreased hot skillet. (Warm and work with one wrap at a time)

Spread guacamole in the middle of the wrap – covering a four inch square. Scatter romaine lettuce over the guacamole and then top with chopped olives and jalapenos.

Line deli meat slices over the guacamole and romaine lettuce bed. Shake Cajun seasoning or salt/black pepper over the meat. Place cheese slices over the meat. Roll and cut in half.
