Mesquite Turkey, Mango and Pepper Jack Cheese Wraps for #SundaySupper

Recipe: Mesquite Turkey, Mango and Pepper Jack Cheese Wrap

Summary: A classic turkey and pepper jack cheese sandwich sweetened with fresh mango and brought up to date in a wrap, for back to school!

Turkey, Mango and Pepper Jack Wrap [1]Ingredients

  • 1 flour tortilla (burrito-size works best)
  • Dijon mustard
  • 3 slices of mesquite turkey lunch meat
  • 1-2 slices pepper jack cheese
  • Several slices fresh ripe mango
  • Optional: shredded lettuce, spinach or arugula

Instructions

  1. Lay tortilla flat on work surface, and spread with a smear of mustard. Layer meat, cheese and mango. Top with shredded lettuce or spinach if you can get away with it!
  2. Makes 1. Multiply ingredients by as many as you wish to make!

Wrap advice from Katie Workman

Don’t overfill the wrap. Workman advises, “Layer ingredients on about 3/4 of the wrap, leaving a little space around the edge for things to squish outward when you roll it up. And then on the edge of the one quarter that has no filling, put a smear of the condiment of your choice, like mustard or mayo. As you roll up the wrap, starting with the filled side closest to you and rolling toward the barer edge, the filling will slide into bare space a bit, ideally leaving you with enough room so that the condiment at the edge will help seal up the wrap as you finish rolling.” Right? It sounds complicated when you write it all out; in fact, you’ll see how easy it is, and once you make your first or second wrap, the rolling will be second nature.

Variations

 The Professor likes to occasionally put this sandwich on cinnamon raisin bread (yes, don’t make fun of it until you have tried it!), and stick it in the panini machine to melt the cheese. Sure, it isn’t still hot when he eats it for lunch, but it makes for a different sandwich experience.

Mangos

You may use any type of fresh ripe mango available to you. Here is a mango variety and availability chart [2] so you can see what is in season when you get ready to make these. These mangos were sent to me by the National Mango Board [3], for testing and recipe development.
