Chili Turkey Wraps

Chili Turkey WrapsRecipe
James Carrier
Wraps make a quick lunch for Marilou Robinson and her family. They favor turkey in their wraps, but almost any cooked or leftover meat can be used. If chili-flavor tortillas are not available, mix 1/2 teaspoon chili powder into the cheese mixture. For best results, use very fresh tortillas so they don't crack, and let them warm to room temperature before rolling.
