I love this time of year! March Madness is underway with the seeding of the teams in the NCAA brackets, and it’s time to watch some basketball! (Sorry, I got carried away, no one will talk basketball with me around here, and I’m still so excited about Vanderbilt winning the SEC Championship!)
Anyway, when you have people over to watch the game, or just to enjoy the spring weather, you gotta eat. Well, I guess you don’t “have” to, but it’s much more fun when you feed people, since you don’t want to be “that house” that never has anything to eat.
I like the idea of feeding a group of people, but sometimes I lack ideas past burgers or chili. In an effort to expand my horizons a bit, I made these pork wraps a few weeks ago, and the whole family really liked them. They were easy to make, and they’re something you could make a bunch of, or put everything out for guests to make for themselves.
• 12 ounces boneless center cut pork loin chops, 3/4-inch thick, lean
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• Salt and black pepper
• 4 8-inch Tortillas
• 1/4 avocado, pitted, peeled, thinly sliced
• 1/3 cup red onion, thinly sliced
• 1 4-oz can diced green chiles
• 4 cups mixed salad greens, (about 2 oz)
• In medium skillet over medium-high heat, warm oil.
• Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper.
• Cook about 3-4 minutes per side until browned and internal temperature reaches 145 deg F.
• Place chops on a plate and let rest 5 minutes
• Cut chops into 1/4-in. slices.
• Microwave tortillas on high until slightly warm and softened, Place tortillas on workspace and top with pork, avocado, onion, chiles and salad greens stopping 2 inches short of one edge.
• Working one tortilla at a time, fold one side of tortilla up and over fillings.
• Tuck fillings in tightly, then fold in the 2-in. edge.
• Continue rolling tortilla toward the other side, securing with toothpick if necessary.
• Repeat with remaining tortillas and serve
My kids always like things in wraps, and these are just a little different from typical tacos. We’ll have them again, soon!
What kinds of wrap sandwiches/meals do you like to make for a crowd?
