Sloppy Joe crunch wraps

Classic sloppy Joes contain a good bit of sugar, but this turkey version goes more savory with just a touch of honey for balance. The turkey mixture gets wrapped up with cheese and pickles in tortilla wraps and toasted in a skillet for a warm, gooey handheld lunch or dinner modeled after a fast-food favorite. The wraps should be soft and pliable; if they’re not, warm them in the microwave for a few seconds. When you fold the tortilla over the filling, it won’t completely cover everything; a pre-toasted piece of tortilla nestles in to cover the opening and keep the whole crunch wrap enclosed.

  1. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high. On cutting board, place 1 tortilla and spray both sides with nonstick spray. Cut tortilla into quarters. Arrange quarters in pan and cook until toasted and crisp, about 1 minute per side. Let cool to room temperature.

Add tomato sauce and honey and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Let cool slightly.

Spoon ¾ cup turkey filling in center of tortilla, leaving 1½-inch border. Top with 5 pickle slices and 1 oz cheese. Place 1 toasted tortilla quarter on top.
