Everyone knows what a BLT is, if you don’t, then you quite possibly have been living on Jupiter until today, and in that case, a BLT is a Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich.
Sorry, I just had to explain that before my inbox becomes inundated with the question…what is a BLT?!
Back to the topic at hand. Today’s post is all about the GLT.
Guacamole Lettuce and Tomato Wrap!
Which is ridiculously easy to make and so healthy for you that it automatically justifies eating that chocolate bar right afterwards.
So just what is a GLT and how do I make one for myself you ask? Let’s not waste any time then…
1 ripe Avocado, halved
Pinch of Chipotle Chile Powder
Splash of Lime Juice
6 Cherry Tomatoes, thinly sliced
2 large Red Leaf Lettuce leaves
2 6″ Whole Wheat Tortillas (or one large 10″)
Dash of Garlic Powder
1 Tbsp Asiago cheese, coarsely grated (divided)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preparation and Assembly
Scoop out flesh from one half of the avocado and place in a bowl. Mash avocado with a fork and add salt, pepper, garlic powder, chipotle chile powder and lime juice. Stir to combine. This is your guacamole spread.
To the other half of the avocado, slice thinly and divide in half.
Warm the tortillas slightly in a microwave by zapping them for about 10 seconds on medium power.
Divide the guacamole in half and spread over the two tortillas.
Place one large lettuce leaf leaf over the guacamole. Add sliced cherry tomatoes and the slices of avocado. Top with asiago cheese. Roll up and eat!
Word of warning…this can be a little messy to eat, so make sure you have a napkin on hand…now if you’ll excuse me, I have a chocolate bar begging to be eaten…
I am going to try this sounds good
let me know what you think Rhoda…seriously, it is so simple to put together! 🙂
