This is one of my favorite quick foods. It is also extremely healthy and filling.
For the tortilla, use any kind you want. As long as it is pliable, it will work great.

You will need a microwave safe plate.

Ingredients:

1 small avocado or 1/2 of a large one, cubed.
1 serving sliced turkey- you can use lunch meat or two slices of roasted/smoked turkey
2 Tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese
handful of sliced jalapenos or serrano peppers- optional
1 large soft shell tortilla- about 7″ or “burrito size”

For the avocado, cut in half lengthwise. Twist apart.
To remove the pit:
Scoop it out with a large spoon OR with the cutting knife, stab the pit. It works best if you use the bottom portion of the blade. The blade will be stuck in the pit. Holding the fruit in one hand and the knife in the other, twist. To take knife out of the pit, wrap a paper towel around the pit and pull it off the blade.
If you only need half the avocado, wrap the other half immediately in plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Run a spoon in between the skin and flesh of the avocado. Pull the flesh out and cube it. Or slice, if you’d rather.
Set aside.
Lay the tortilla on a microwave safe plate.
Cover the tortilla with the turkey.
Sprinkle with the cheese.
Sprinkle with the pepper slices, if using.
Microwave on high for 30 seconds.
Turn the tortilla. If you don’t lift and rearrange it, the bottom will get soggy or at the least very moist.
Microwave for another 30 seconds.
Remove from the microwave and put the avocado on just one half of the tortilla.
Flip the other side over the avocado.

Enjoy!
Makes 1.
