Fool Your Family Friday!

Try this fun recipe and see if you can fool YOUR family!
I did! TORTILLA "CIGARS"

1 cup chicken or turkey, cubed (leftovers work great for this)
1/2 cup shredded reduced fat Cheddar or American cheese
1/2 cup yellow squash puree
1/2 cup carrot puree

4 ounces reduced-fat or nonfat cream cheese
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 burrito size whole wheat tortillas

1. Preheat your oven to 350 and line baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, stir together the chicken or turkey, cheese, squash and carrot purees, cream cheese, garlic powder and salt.

3. Cut the tortillas in half. Place one half on the work surface with the straight edge facing you. Spread about two tablespoons of the filling along that edge from one side to the other. Starting at the edge, roll the tortilla into a cigar shape, completely enclosing the filling. Place seam-side down on the baking sheet. Stuff and roll the rest of the tortillas the same way.

4. Bake until the tortillas begin to brown, 4-5 minutes.


Thanks for visiting today.
I'll be back at midnight with a sneak peek at Lauren's new Saturday sketch!
