They are not flour tortilla but an ok sub.

How To Roll Up A Wrap

Picture borrowed from Entre Fogones con Mimi!

You can make an open-ended wrap or a closed one.  And everyone seems to have their own best way to wrap a wrap.  This is how I wrap a wrap.

Smear sandwich cranberry within an inch of the perimeter of the tortilla.

Layer makings in a wide swath down the center of the tortilla and to within a couple inches of the left and right edges—kind of a rough rectangle.

 

To make a closed end wrap, fold both the right and the left edges over the goodies and roll from the bottom.  To make an open-ended wrap, fold only one edge.

 

If I make a closed end wrap, we cut the wrap in two at an angle and eat half at a time, or share with my honey.

 

If the tortilla is a little stiff and hard to wrap and keep closed, try microwaving the tortilla under a paper towel for 15 to 20 seconds.  It will be more pliable

I took a small Ribeye out of the freezer not knowing what I would do with it other than knowing that I would pan sear and oven roast. I am still on my own for meals since Lyn is still on her special strict diet and living up to my promise to eat well. Ok Ok sort of living up to it I have days that I have reverted to a meat and potato guy but for the most part…… Anyway she made herself a Fajita and went to the bar to dig in it was then I noticed she did not use the tortillas and asked are you going to use while batting my eyes. No, it must have been two seconds until I figure out my finished meal. By this time the steak had been removed from the oven and had sat for at least 7 minutes so I slice up thin dished out some of the roasted veggie and topped with steak and a sprinkle of grated parmesan cheese.

Ingredients:

Ribeye Steak

Roasted Zucchini, Summer Squash and Baby Roma Tomatoes

Two small tortillas

How:

Season the steaks with salt and pepper and bring to room temperature.

Preheat oven to 425 rack in center.

Heat the oil over medium heat in an oven proof pan.

Sear the steaks for about 3-5 minutes.

Turn and place the pan in oven for about 7 minutes.

Remove cover very loosely with tin foil and let set for 5 minutes before serving.

Slice thin against the grain

Roast vegetable at 450 until desired doneness

Heat taco add veggie and meat

Serve

Mexican Lasagna Recipe

Mexican Lasagna Recipe

Still on the fend for myself diet, but I am proud of Lyn she is sticking to her strict diet the woman has will power. After all she has to avoid my cooking most of the time that is hard to do. So I am taking advantage of this whenever I can and trying to stay eating healthy. I think everyone likes TexMex inspired meals so when I saw this on Pinterest I grabbed it and decided to make it as healthy as I could so white turkey breast, organic black beans and corn but I refused to use low-fat cheese it just does not melt right ya know what I mean? BTW she was right this was a great meal.

Anyway after making this I believe adding fresh chopped cilantro to the mixture after cooking just before spreading it in the baking dish would add a nice addition.

I just copied her recipe below except I used turkey.

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds ground turkey breast
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 cup taco sauce
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • salt
  • 8 (8 inch) soft corn or flour tortillas
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • sliced black olives for topping
  • low-fat sour cream for topping

 

How:

1.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

2.  Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 Tablespoons of the olive oil to the skillet.

3.  Add ground turkey and season with chili powder and cumin. Brown the meat (about 5 minutes).

4.  Add taco sauce, black beans and corn. Heat the mixture through then season with salt to taste.

5.  Coat a shallow baking dish with remaining Tablespoon of olive oil.

6. Cut the tortillas in quarters for easy layering.

7. Start with a layer of the meat mixture, then layer with tortillas and then cheese.Repeat for a second layer, ending with cheese.

8. Bake lasagna 12 to 15 minutes until cheese is slightly browned.

9. Remove from oven, top with sliced black olives and serve.
