Foodie Friday--It's A Wrap

Foodie Friday-It's a Wrap

I'd like to share with you today two recipes for tortilla wraps that I tasted at a friend's home after our service group meeting. The wraps are made using spinach tortillas each with a scrumptious filling. Normally I don't care for curry, but this has just enough to give it a great flavor without overpowering it. The turkey is delicious with it's cranberry too.
Curry Chicken Wraps
4 lobs chicken tenders
1 1/2 c. mayonnaise
3 T. curry
4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/3 c. mustard
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. raisins
spinach wraps
Cook frozen tenders in their own juices for 10-12 minutes in a covered pot on the stove. Cool. In a bowl combine all other ingredients. Fold in chicken using a fork. Add raisins, fill wraps and roll. Cut in thirds. (You can make ahead and refridgerate in plastic wrap before cutting.)

Turkey Wraps
2 lbs. shaved deli turkey breast
8 oz. cream cheese
1 can cranberry sauce
1/2 small red onion, diced
sprouts and lettuce (optional)
spinach wraps

Spread a thin coat of cream cheese over at least half of the wrap then add a layer of he cranberry sauce. Then sprinkle the diced red onion. Add turkey to the center of the wrap and salt and pepper. Top with sprouts and/or lettuce if desired. Roll it all. Place in refrigerator. When ready to serve, cut in thirds on an angle.

These were served with a pasta salad, fresh blackberries and strawberries and Meltaway cookies with a frozen Raspberry parfait for dessert. Delicious. Thanks Larraine! For more mouth-watering recipes check out Designs by Gollum here.

Both of these recipes sound and look sooooo good. I will try them both. Thanks for sharing.

I think the pictures are great. Good job!
Next time ask your friend if I can come too. I'll just need 10 hours notice to drive there.

Have a great weekend

I love curry, so the first wrap looks especially wonderful to me. Food always just tastes better when shared with friends, doesn't it?

Funny I was just thinking about the wraps we make here for a quick appetizer.
Not as substantial as yours with chicken but just for a bite we take cream cheese and mix it with LOTS of crushed garlic. Spread it on roll it up and slice into 1" discs. They will fly off the plates.
Also can be made ahead, wrapped in plastic wrap and even frozen.

These look wonderful! i was craving a turkey cranberry sandwich yesterday so we stopped at Kneaders for lunch. I am going to try these recipes! (Will your grandchildren eat green tortillas?) I wonder...This would be a colorful and fun meal for when everyone comes over.)
Thanks for sharing. What service group do you belong to?
