Recipe: Turkey Ranch Roll Ups

Turkey Roll Ups Main

Aug 9, 2016

These creamy Turkey Ranch Tortilla Roll Ups are super easy, you can make them quickly, are packed with bold and tasty flavours.

If turkey isn’t your thing then select a nice honey or black forest ham instead, or even sliced chicken. These wraps are delicious, easy and satisfying and perfect for a galley kitchen set up.


1/4 lb Turkey breast deli meat
1/4 cup Bell pepper, sweet orange, or red yellow
2 tbsp Red onion
1 tbsp ranch powder mix
48 Tortillas, soft
1/4 cup Cheddar cheese, sharp
1 8 oz package cream cheese

To make these, first mix the softened cream cheese with the ranch powder, cheddar cheese, bell pepper and onion until well combined.  To soften the cream cheese, I try to remember to take it out of the refrigerator a couple of hours before I need it, but life happens, so if you forget, just pop it in a bowl and microwave it a bit until it is nice and soft all the way through.

Once it is all mixed well, spread about 2 Tbsp of this mixture evenly on each tortilla (this works well when you are using a 12″ tortilla,) then lay 3-4 slices of turkey breast flat on top of the cheese mixture to cover in a single layer.  I use my fingers to gently press the turkey to make sure everything is packed together well so it won’t fall apart when it is cut into pinwheels.

Turkey Roll Ups InstructionsNow, roll the tortilla up gently, yet tightly to make sure it holds together and keeps its shape.  Once you roll the tortilla up, I like to roll it around a couple of times to help it get the perfectly round shape, then use a serrated knife to gently slice the roll up into 5-6 slices.  It is important to use a serrated knife because it will cut much more cleanly through the roll up, where as a regular knife will smash it.

You can eat these immediately, or refrigerate to firm up and serve later.  If you refrigerate them, the flavors will come together a little bit more, but you have to be careful not to smush them together or they will become flat on the edges, which doesn’t effect the taste, but does make them not quite as pretty.

This recipe will make about 24 slices, which is 4 tortillas, cut up into 6 pieces each and the ends discarded.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
