Turkey Potato Dinner Wraps

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Serves 4


3/4 lb. US russet potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch and diced

1 tbsp water

1 tbsp canola oil

3/4 lb. ground lean turkey

1 large carrot, shredded

1/3 cup sliced green onions with tops

1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce

2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning or basil

Salt and pepper, to taste

4 large (9 to 10-inch) whole wheat or high fiber tortillas

Light sour cream (optional)


  1. Place potatoes in microwave-safe bowl. Sprinkle with water. Cover, venting one corner.

  2. Microwave on high for five to eight minutes just until potatoes are tender. (Time will depend on wattage of your oven.)

  3. Heat oil in large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add and break up turkey; cook five minutes, tossing occasionally. Mix in carrot; cook two minutes. Add potatoes and onions; cook and toss two minutes. Reduce heat to medium; mix in tomato sauce, cheese, and herbs.

  4. Cook, stirring occasionally, four to five minutes until mixture is hot and most of sauce is absorbed. Season with salt and pepper. On work surface, lay out tortillas. Place 3/4 cup hot turkey mixture on each; fold and roll up as for burritos.

  5. Cut in halves and place on serving plates. Accompany with sour cream, if desired.
