Sunday is the big game and whether you are in it for the love of the game or just to critique the commercials, you’re definitely going to be indulging in some food and beverage, right? My Good and Good For You Challenge with the Pork Board and Publix recipe of the week is for delicious, and easy, Game Day Pork and Chile Wraps.
This recipe, like last week’s for pork medallions and a lemon garlic sauce, was so simple it almost sounded too good to be true. It was another winner, though, and had my husband going back for seconds. I served the wraps with black beans and sweet potato fries mainly because that is what we had on hand. It ended up being a great weeknight dinner that took very little time to prepare. Now my girls did not eat the assembled wraps, but they loved the individually sliced strips of pork.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
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, 98% fat free
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)…note that I did not add any salad greens and we still thought the wraps were really tasty
In medium skillet over medium-high heat, warm oil. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper and cook about 3-4 mins. per side until browned and internal temp. reaches 145 °F, Place chops on a plate and let rest 5 mins.
Cut chops into 1/4-in. slices.
Microwave tortillas on high until slightly warm and softened, about 30 sec. 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.

Next week I’ll be featuring another recipe I’ve tested out in our kitchen with the pork cut of the week on sale at Publix, pork roast. The following week I’ll wrap up this series (get it…wrap) by posting a great giveaway that includes $40 worth of pork coupons.
Do you have any good wrap recipes to share?

I am being compensated for this campaign and also received coupons and a gift card to Publix to help facilitate these recipe reviews, but all opinions expressed on my blog are always my own.
