Turkey in a Tortilla

I was at Costco the other day and saw some turkey roll-ups in their pre-made refrigerated section. They were calling to me. I had them once before, and it was awhile ago, but I remember they were pretty good. I thought I'd make up my own version instead of buying them this time though. I stopped at the grocery store on my way back home to pick up some essentials for the roll-ups. I already had the cream cheese, tortillas and turkey, so I just needed lettuce, tomato and cranberry sauce. I got home, went to work and I'm glad I did. It was a nice change of pace and it's perfect finger food for those times when you want something different than the standard meat and cheese roll-ups. I bet it will also be a great way to use up those Thanksgiving leftovers!

Cranberry Turkey Roll-Ups

1 large flour tortilla (burrito size)
1 large lettuce leaf
1 small Roma tomato, chopped
6-7 small turkey slices
1 TB shredded swiss cheese (or a slice)
1 oz cream cheese
1-2 TB whole berry cranberry sauce (depending on taste)

1. Mix cream cheese and cranberry sauce together, mashing large berries as needed, and set aside.
2. Spread about 1 - 2 TB of cream cheese mixture over the tortilla, leaving about an inch border.
3. Sprinkle swiss cheese over cream cheese mixture.

4. Lay lettuce evenly over the cheese.

5. Evenly place turkey over the lettuce.

6. Sprinkle tomato over the middle.
7. Roll up the tortilla and chill for at least a half hour.
8. Slice into rounds and server.

Yields about 6 large pieces.
