Forget the bread & keep a stash of tortillas in the freezer! This one's easy to make (for a quick dinner) and easy to take (for a brown bag lunch).

We really enjoyed the flavor of this fast and easy roll up sandwich. The avocado, mayo, and lime mixture has the most wonderful flavor. I will use it on other sandwiches. I used romaine and smoked turkey. Be sure to use the 10 inch tortillas as directed...I used smaller ones and they did not roll up well because they were too full. This will be made often at our house...a new sandwich recipe is always welcome here!
