Southwest Smoked Turkey Wraps Recipe
During the summer months, our family likes to make hoagies and sandwiches for easy lunches and also dinners. I really do not like heating up the house. I know I am glutting for punishment when I make a hot meal during the summer months. I usually keep bunches of cold lunch meats, cheeses, fruits, and veggies on hand as well as different breads in the bread drawer. I also keep many cans of tuna on hand to whip up our Copycat Panera Bread Tuna Sandwich because they are a favorite.
The whole family tends to get hungry at different times during the summer. I am one who likes a really late dinner, usually around 8:30 or 9:00. I just never really get that hungry before then. I can usually just prep a few veggies and everyone can just eat when they get hungry. It works perfectly for us.
Making wraps at home saves quite a bit of $$’s. No need to rush off and spend a small fortune at the sandwich shop. Just grab some of your favorite deli turkey and cheeses and whip up these Southwest Turkey Wraps to enjoy. The southwest sauce makes for a great combo with the turkey and pops a bit of a punch. Fresh leaf lettuce gives the wrap a bit of a crunch. You could also add in some tomatoes but they are not needed. This little wrap will fill you when you are looking to enjoy a late dinner or light lunch.
