I’ve been on a wrap kick lately. Besides being easy to make they a nice change from having sandwiches for lunch. As an extra bonus, avocados were on sale, so I incorporated them into everything I made for a week, starting with these avocado wraps with spicy mayonnaise. Creamy avocado and crunchy smoky bacon get a nice little kick from a southwestern-inspired sauce. This is one great wrap (inspired by a recipe from Rachael Ray) that isn’t boring by any stretch of the imagination.
I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.
