Thanksgiving Wrap

Hello Readers...remember me?!? I can't believe I did it again. I dropped off the face of the blogosphere. How will you ever forgive me?? How about with a very tasty recipe and a big apology :)

I am sure you still have a ton of leftovers from that huge meal you just ate last Thursday..aka Thanksgiving. By the way, what did everyone do for the big day? See family? See friends? Volunteer? I did a little bit of the last two. My friends and I volunteered to clean up at the Ronald McDonald House on Thanksgiving and then the day after we did a HUGE feast! Full of great food and amazing people (see below for the picture of the group).

Anyways, back to my original post. I am sure you have a lot of food leftover from your meal so why not throw it all together into this tasty and filling wrap from my favorite Hungry Girl!

Let me know how you have all been...I have missed you :)


For Corn Stuffing
1 1/2 tbsp. yellow cornmeal
1 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1 tbsp. chopped jarred roasted red peppers
1 tsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
1/2 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda)
Optional: 1 jarred jalapeno slice, chopped

For Wrap
1 La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious Low Carb High Fiber Large Tortilla (or alternative below)
1 tbsp. light blue cheese dressing with about 25 calories per tbsp. (like the one by Wish-Bone)
5 mandarin orange segments packed in juice, drained and chopped
1 tbsp. dried cranberries
3 oz. yummy tofurky, chopped
1/4 cup chopped romaine lettuce

  • Combine all ingredients for the stuffing in a microwave-safe bowl sprayed with nonstick spray, and stir until thoroughly mixed. Microwave for 30 seconds. Use a fork to break up the mixture. If needed, microwave for another 15 seconds, until no longer liquid-y. Set aside to cool.
  • Lay tortilla on a plate and warm in the microwave for 10 - 15 seconds.Spread dressing onto the tortilla, and sprinkle chopped orange segments and dried cranberries down the center of the tortilla.
  • Top with turkey, stuffing, and lettuce.Wrap tortilla up tightly like a burrito, folding the sides in first, and then rolling it up from the bottom. (Or serve it wrap-style, with one end left open.)

Note: This thing will be SUPER-STUFFED. (It IS a Thanksgiving wrap, after all.) Now eat up, turkey!
