Turkey-Avocado-Cream Cheese Wraps

I was supposed to make Mongolian Beef tonight, but it's hot (still 95° at 7pm, with a heat index of 104.1°!) and I do not feel like being anywhere near the stove, especially not as hot as it gets cooking in a cast iron wok!!

So I ran to the store for the few ingredients I needed to make up the difference for these easy-peasy wraps. I like to serve them with tortilla chips and salsa on the side.

Please note that technically this should make four servings - 2 ounces of meat is a serving, after all. However, if you let your family build their own, they'll probably put in way more meat than that! ;)

Prep: 10 minutes (but plan ahead to soften your cream cheese on the countertop)
Cook: ZERO!!
Servings: 4

Ingredients
  1. 2 medium ripe avocados, seeds removed, flesh scraped out of the skins and mashed in a small bowl

  2. 1/4 to 1/2 of a red onion, chopped (make these pretty small pieces)

  3. 1 jalapeño pepper, stemmed, seeded and minced

  4. 2 garlic cloves, minced

  5. 2 tablespoons (or more, to taste) chopped cilantro

  6. 1 tablespoon lime juice

  7. dash of black pepper

  8. salt to taste

  9. 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened

  10. 1 ripe Roma tomato, chopped (small pieces again!)

  11. 4 large ("burrito size") tortillas

  12. 4 leaves from a head of green leaf lettuce

  13. 1/2 pound sandwich-sliced smoked turkey


Directions

Combine ingredients 1-7. (This is my basic guacamole recipe, with the tomatoes added in. You can use more jalapeño or a serrano if you like it hotter. Red bell peppers are also a nice addition.)

Add softened cream cheese and mix/mash together well. Stir in tomato.

Note: You could also just toss all of these ingredients together in a food processor.

Spread guacamole mixture on one side of each tortilla. Cover with a lettuce leaf and add turkey slices. Roll up tightly, slice in half, and serve immediately.
