BLT Tortillas

Prep/Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 8 servings

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons ranch salad dressing mix
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
8 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
16 bacon strips, cooked and drained
2 to 3 cups shredded lettuce
2 cups chopped tomato
green and sweet red pepper strips, optional

In a large bowl, combine mayo, sour cream, salad dressing mix and red pepper flakes; spread on tortillas. Layer with bacon, lettuce and tomato. Top with peppers if desired. Roll up tortillas.

Tips and Tricks
Cook the bacon in the microwave to save time, and blot grease with paper towels.
Make It Healthier
Reduce the amount of bacon and use the leanest cut you can find. Increase lettuce and tomatoes and use the peppers, they are a great source of vitamin C. In place of iceberg, use a leafy green lettuce or baby spinach. Use light sour cream and mayo.
How Kids Can Help
Shred the lettuce, layer the ingredients, roll tortillas up.
