These roll-up snacks are delicious.  People seem to love them, and often ask me to bring them to their parties.  They are pretty simple to make, although some of the prep (like cooking the bacon) is a little time-consuming.  You don’t have to be exact on the amounts of the ingredients, but here is a general guideline.

 Ingredients:

Package of large flour tortillas

Package of cream cheese

Bunch of lettuce (I like romaine) (washed and dried)

1-2 lb. sliced deli turkey

Package of bacon

2-4 avocados (diced)

Plastic wrap

Cook bacon to really crispy (I usually cook it in the microwave for maximum crispiness), then line up ingredients in the order that they’re listed above.  Spread thin layer of cream cheese on tortilla, place a leaf of lettuce on top, then a few slices of turkey, then a handful of avocado pieces, and then crumbled bacon (I place the majority of ingredients toward one end, making it easier to roll).  Roll tortilla starting from one end, then wrap it securely in plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator.  Do this with remaining ingredients.  Chill for about 2-3 hours.  Just before serving, remove plastic wrap and cut into rolls, about ½ to 1-inch thick. Arrange and serve.  Note: these are best when you prepare them about 2 to 3 hours before serving them (keeps bacon crispy and avocado green).
