Rush Hour Gourmet

No need to turn on the stove for this quick meal of Tex-Mex Avocado Wrap with Red Bean Salad. Tomato salsa, avocado and sliced smoked turkey wrapped in a flour tortilla create a simple dinner. For this recipe, I sprayed the tortillas with olive oil spray. The spray adds flavor without too much fat. Flavored tortillas would be perfect for this recipe.
