I don’t know about you, but I tire of making peanut butter sandwiches and macaroni and cheese. It is so easy as a busy mom to get into a rut at lunchtime. We tend to make whatever is easiest, and whatever our kids are guaranteed to eat. Well ladies, the awesome team at Idahoan has come up with a quick and easy lunch idea that I know your kids will love! (This lunch is great for adults on the go as well!)
My kids LOVE tacos, quesadillas, burritos…all things tortilla. So, when I was given this recipe to make and review, I knew I could turn it into a winner with my kids. We made Idahoan’s Savory Tortilla Wraps today for lunch, and I hope you will make them soon too!
Here is what you will need to make this tasty and quick lunch!
Idahoan Savory Potato Wraps
- 1 cup prepared Idahoan® Original Mashed Potatoes
- 4 (9-inch) red pepper or flour tortillas
- 1/2 pound cooked turkey breast or ham, thinly sliced (approx. 8 slices), or diced into small chunks
- 1 cup shredded lettuce
- 1 cup diced red bell pepper or tomato
Prepare Idahoan® Original Mashed Potatoes as package directs for 2 servings. (I used a convenient pre-portioned potato pouch from Idahoan!) Cool potatoes to room temperature. (This tastes great with warm potatoes too!)
Warm tortillas individually in microwave for 8-10 seconds. Spread each tortilla with 1/4 cup mashed potatoes.
Since I was doing this with my kids, I set up the fillings like a salad bar, and let the kids choose what they wanted. I put out a plate of sliced deli ham, strips of roasted turkey breast, and grated cheese. (The original recipe doesn’t call for cheese, but for me, nearly everything tastes better with cheese!)
Idahoan recommends filling your wrap with shredded lettuce and diced tomato or bell pepper. Sounds great to me! I also think grated carrot would be a great addition to your wrap. (Since I made these for my children today (who are not big veggie fans), I chose not to put out the vegetables. However, with these wraps, I think there are a variety of veggies and fillings you could add!
Top your tortilla with 2 slices of turkey or ham, 1/4 cup shredded lettuce and red pepper or tomato (or your filling of choice!). Roll up and place seam-side down. My kids absolutely LOVED making their own wrap, and thought having a “mashed potato taco” was really fun. Giving your child healthy choices like lean protein and 100% real potatoes is an awesome way to show you care, and will help keep your kids healthy and happy!
I think the empty plate speaks for itself! Score one for Supermom! (And Idahoan!)
