Southwestern Club Wraps

Ever since my friend Lori from Recipe Girl pinned these bacon & guacamole sandwiches on Pinterest, I have not been able to get the combination out of my mind.

We love all kinds of sandwiches and wraps around here...and this is perfect for a quick dinner.
{Of course, if you're a food blogger and will be taking pictures of it for all the internets to see, you may want to serve it with something besides tortilla chips to add a little color to the plate.} ;)

Let's talk Guacamole:  I LOVE fresh guacamole, but if I'm making sandwiches or wraps, I use the store-bought kind.  I'm lucky enough that my grocery store has a freshly-made guacamole bar...oh yes.  Pictured here is Wholly Guacamole...you'll find it in the meat or produce section.

{And yes, I use my Valentine dish towels year-round.}

And, I happen to be a little crazy for cilantro.  If you don't care for it (and that makes me sad), please feel free to leave it off.


Southwestern Club Wraps
{serves 4}

Roasted Turkey Breast Tenderloins
1/2 teaspoon chile powder
1 (15 oz) can black beans
1/4 teaspoon cumin
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
8 slices bacon
4 large tortillas (I used jalapeno cheddar flavor)
guacamole
cilantro
baby spinach leaves

Prepare the turkey tenderloins as directed in the link above, adding 1/2 teaspoon chile powder to the salt and pepper for seasoning. (Make the turkey earlier in the day, or the day before, to make things super quick.)

While the turkey is roasting, drain and rinse the black beans.  Toss with the cumin and salt and pepper.  Cover and refrigerate.

Cook up some bacon.  {I know you know what bacon looks like...sometimes I just like to look at it.}  Once crispy, drain on paper towels and set aside.

When the turkey has rested and cooled a bit, slice thinly.  (You won't use all of the turkey, so reserve the rest for sandwiches and quesadillas later in the week.)

Build your quesadillas as follows...just eyeball amounts to suit your own tastes.

1. spread guacamole down the center of the tortilla,
2. add beans (adding on top of the guac will help keep them from falling out.),
3. add cilantro,
4. top with slices of roasted turkey,
5. add 2 slices of bacon,
6. top with baby spinach,
7. roll, slice, and devour.

Do YOU like sandwiches and wraps for dinner?
