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.

By Craig Ritchie

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
