Turkey Tortilla Wrap

Servings: 1
Prep time:


  • 1 fat-free flour tortilla
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 ounce sliced turkey breast
  • 1 ounce shredded reduced-fat Jack cheese
  • shredded lettuce (from one leaf)
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Place the tortilla on a paper towel and microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds. Transfer tortilla to a work surface.
  2. Spread the top of the tortilla with mustard and arrange half of the turkey to within 1/2-inch of the edge.
  3. Evenly sprinkle the cheese, lettuce, and salt and pepper (if using) over the turkey and top with remaining turkey.
  4. Roll up like a burrito and loosely wrap in microwave-safe plastic wrap or waxed paper.
  5. Microwave on HIGH for 45 to 60 seconds, until tortilla is warm and cheese is melted. Carefully unwrap and cut in half or leave whole. Serve warm.
