HG's Flat-tastic Ranchy Bacon Wrap

Hip to Be Square!
T. Bell's wacky Bacon Ranch Tortada SOUNDS delicious, but is it really worth the hefty stats? NAH. Our Flat-tastic Ranchy Bacon Wrap is a much better way to go!

Ingredients:
1 tbsp. fat-free ranch dressing
1 tbsp. mashed avocado
2 oz. cooked skinless lean chicken breast, chopped
1/4 cup shredded lettuce
2 tbsp. chopped tomato
1 tbsp. precooked real crumbled bacon (like the kind by Oscar Mayer)
1 La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious Low Carb/High Fiber Large Tortilla

Directions:
To make the filling, combine dressing with avocado in a bowl and mix well. Add all other ingredients except the tortilla. Toss to coat.

Lay tortilla flat on a clean, dry surface. Spoon filling onto the center. Carefully fold the tortilla sides toward the center, followed by the top and bottom, overlapping to enclose the filling and form a square. Press gently to seal.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Carefully place the wrap in the skillet, seam side down, and cook for 3 - 4 minutes. Gently flip and cook for an additional 2 - 3 minutes, until lightly browned.

Slice in half diagonally or just bite right in. Tor-TADA!

Taco Bell's Bacon Ranch Tortada

Flat-Out Wrong
We'd like to take a moment to thank the fast-food industry for furnishing us with an endless supply of crazy-fattening foods to make over. Without you, our jobs would be a LOT harder. That being said, sure, we'd like to eat a grilled tortilla filled with meat, veggies, bacon, and delicious dressing... but not with 570 calories and 24 grams of fat tagging along! This item from the Bell has more calories than a Nacho Cheese Gordita with Beef AND an order of Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes combined! Taco Bell, watch 'n learn. Simple swaps -- a high-fiber tortilla in place of the regular one, lighter dressing, etc. -- can take this thing from a fatty mess to a totally reasonable option. And while we're talking, Taco B., we've got some issues with this "Fourthmeal" concept you're pushing...
