Turkey wraps

Pennywise Potato-Turkey Wraps

¾ pound (12 ounces) potatoes, cut into ½-inch dice
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon canola oil
¾ pound (12 ounces) 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)

Place potatoes in microwave-safe bowl; sprinkle with water. Cover, venting one corner. Microwave on HIGH 5 to 8 minutes just until potatoes are tender. (Time will depend on wattage of your oven.) Meanwhile, heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add and break up turkey; cook 5 minutes, tossing occasionally. Mix in carrot; cook 2 minutes. Add potatoes and onions; cook and toss 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; mix in tomato sauce, cheese, and herbs. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to5 minutes until mixture is hot and most of sauce is absorbed. Season with salt and pepper. On work surface, lay out tortillas. Place ¾ cup hot turkey mixture on each; fold and roll up as for burritos. Cut in halves and place on serving plates. Accompany with sour cream, if desired

Makes 4 main-dish servings

Hi Tori! Thanks for posting the Pennywise Potato Turkey Wraps.

I work on behalf of the US Potato Board and we are really interested in seeing what people are doing to strech their food dollar in tough economic times like these.

Luckily, in most parts of the country, potatoes still only cost about 25 cents per serving! If you ever want more potato recipes, we'd love for you to stop by www.MomsDinnerHelper.com to find a few or even leave a comment or share your own recipe.

Take care!
