Cook a turkey!

I cooked a turkey this week. I decided I could endure the heat in the kitchen for a little while to have the benefit of having a few heat-free meals. I discovered a salsa chicken wrap recipe that was fabulous and served it once for a neighbor coming for lunch and another time last night for our foster girls. Everyone liked it! I served it with fruit and green beans.

I'll use some more in a summer dinner salad and again in a pasta salad. I'll do chow mein, too - a quick cook. If I don't use it all, I'll freeze it for recipes later in the summer.

Here's my adapted version of the chicken and salsa wrap recipe from www.recipegoldmine.com:

Chicken and Salsa Wraps recipe

8 burrito-size flour tortillas, warmed
2 c. grape tomatoes, chopped
1 (2 1/4 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
2 tablespoons diced canned green chiles
1/3 cup sliced green onions, including tops
1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 pound cooked chicken or turkey, chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 t. taco seasoning

Combine all ingredients except tortillas. Place 1/2 cup filling on each tortilla; roll up. Slice diagonally.
