Tortilla-Wrapped Mexican Sandwiches

Because they can be made in advance and are more interesting than plain meat-on-bread, these Mexican sandwiches make good party fare. Serve one per person or slice them into several pieces for party-tray appetizers.

Ingredients

6
(8-inch) flour tortillas
1
(6-oz.) container frozen avocado dip, thawed
1
(3-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
8

6
leaves leaf lettuce
4
oz. (1 cup) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1
cup alfalfa sprouts
1/3
cup salsa or taco sauce
  • 1 Heat tortillas as directed on package. Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine avocado dip and cream cheese; blend well.
  • 2 Spread avocado mixture evenly over each warm tortilla to within 1/2 inch of edge. Arrange beef, lettuce, cheese and sprouts over avocado mixture. Top with salsa. (If sandwiches are made ahead, omit salsa inside tortillas; serve as a dip with sandwiches.)
