Monthly Mystery Munchies #16: Tortilla Roll Stuffed with Creamy Curried Turkey

How would you like your Tortillas all stuffed up with turkey meat that’s glazed in creamy curry sauce, layered with boiled eggs and then topped with green pesto cheese? 

I’m telling you that I absolutely love it! Not just for the taste but for its simplicity in response to Gen’s Monthly Mystery Munchies Challenge that has to be done under the following condition:

  • It has to be a wrap
  • Use only one kind of meat
  • Add one kind of sauce or dressing  on it.

The wrap is a great idea! Not to mention very convenient since I just stocked up a bunch of wraps 2 weekends ago and I know that I have not used them all. Plus I love meat and dressing it up with some kind of sauce (or dressing) isn’t too difficult to do.

More than anything, this is nothing too elaborate; it’s simple, it’s hearty and it’s saucy. Have a look at this:

Serve!

The best part about this is that the fillings were made using left-overs: I had left-over plain tortillas, a bowl of shredded turkey breast that was already boiled, a bunch of boiled eggs that was meant for something else and a block of green pesto cheese in the fridge waiting to be devoured. 

With all the ingredients ready to be used, all I had to do was spice up the shredded turkey in a pan for a few minutes. I also made sure that the cream doesn’t dry up so the turkey sorts of come together with a gravy-like sauce. The only thing I didn’t have when I made these was regrettably some vegetables. I reckon adding fresh, crispy lettuce to it would taste awesome!

Voila! We have a meal fit for this month’s Monthly Mystery Munchies Challenge #16:

Ingredients
  1. 2 turkey breast meat
  2. 1 bay leaf
  3. 1 tspn curry powder
  4. 1 tspn taco seasoning
  5. A sprig of chive, chopped
  6. Half a cup cooking cream
  7. Pesto Cheese
  8. Boiled Eggs
  9. Corn Tortilla
  10. Oil for frying
Instructions
  1. Boil/steam turkey meat with bay leaf till cooked. Shred them up and set aside to cool.
  2. Boil 2-3 eggs. Peel, sliced and set aside
  3. Heat up some oil in a pan. Add in the shredded turkey along with the curry powder and taco seasoning. Mix well. Be careful not to burn
  4. Add in the cooking cream. Mix well but refrain from getting the cream dry up such that you have a little bit of sauce-like gravy.
  5. Sprinkle over chopped chives. Mix well. Turn off the fire
  6. Lay down the tortilla flat. Spread some cooked turkey then top it with a layer of pesto cheese followed by 2-3 slices of eggs. Roll them up.
  7. Repeat till all the ingredients are used up
  8. Serve as is or if you prefer, bake them in the oven after rolling for about 5 minutes before serving for a crispier tortilla
Notes
  1. The cooking time above assumes the meat has already been boiled and shredded which would take about 30 minutes. Frying up the boiled meat with curry, taco seasoning and cooking would only take about 10 minutes or less.
  2. Feel free to use other cheeses as alternative.

This recipe should be good for breakfast, lunch or dinner.It makes for a wholesome meal. Else, this can be served as snacks, too and definitely suitable for party food. You can always fancy it up by giving it a pinwheel cut, much like the wrap I made for our Mystery Munchies #10.

The wrap is also pretty versatile and you can basically stuff anything you like in there. Let’s hop over to Gen, our Resident Chef at Eat, Play, Clove to check out her wrap creation. I’m sure it is nothing short of delish!

Monthly Mystery Munchies features every first Friday of the month in collaboration with Gen, Author of Eat, Play, Clove. I think I’ve got an idea for next month’s challenge and it’s going to be pretty interesting!

  1. Absolutely yummy!! This looks fab – I need to try this tonight as I am starting to swap turkey breast for chicken as it’s a little leaner 🙂

    • Yes, yes! Try it, Manny! You won’t regret it. And turkey is a great meat, definitely a good substitute. 😀

  2. Green pesto cheese? I’m living under a rock, lol. Will you adopt me and cook for me please? 🙂

    • I think you should adopt me! ;D
      You know, Jas…we also have red pesto cheese, mustard cheese, cumin cheese, smelly cheese and smellier cheese! LOL. Heheheh! It’s the country of cheeses and I’ve been impressed at some of the more exotic variety. The green pesto cheese is one of my favourites! Do you think if I send you some cheeses, they would let it pass through customs?

      • They might…but by the time it would get here it’d be one of the smellier cheeses, LOL.

        • Hahahha! As my husband always say… (when it comes to cheeses) the smellier the better! I beg to differ..especially if they smell like feet! Urrghh…Shame though, I’d really love to send some to you, Jas! 😀

          • I love how you clarified “when it comes to cheeses”, hahahahaha! I remember those feet-smelling cheeses from when I lived in Germany. Yuck!
            That’s very sweet of you, Ann, but there’s no need. I just have to be brave and try some of the assortments available here first. Thank you, though! I’ll try them when I visit you one day. How’s that? 🙂

          • See! I know you know what I meant with smelly cheeses! LOL. I’ll make sure we have the assortments ready just for you, Jas! 😀

    Annnnnn! “How would you like your Tortillas all stuffed up with turkey meat that’s glazed in creamy curry sauce, layered with boiled eggs and then topped with green pesto cheese? ” – I would like that very, very much! Using turkey meat, curry sauce, eggs AND pesto cheese is absolutely inspired, and I love that you used leftovers! What an awesome combination! Every month I wait with wonder and excitement to see what you’ll be doing, and this month was no different. I appreciate that you accepted this challenge and didn’t laugh at me! I never even considered using turkey meat or curry sauce but you see, this is why we do it – to challenge and inspire, and you have done exactly that! I am so proud to do these challenges with you. Thank you for being permanently amazing! Lots and lots of love xoxo

    • Oh Gen! Why in the world would you think that I’d laugh at you. No freaking way!!! I’m completely and whole-heartedly on board with whatever challenge there is – easy or otherwise! And it’s always fun to swing both ways; likewise always looking forward to what you have created as well. Totally proud, proud, proud to do this with you too, Gen. Glad to be an inspiration and don;t you forget you have continue to inspire as well! Thank YOU! 😀 xoxoxo.
