This lunchbox-friendly wrap is a tasty way to use leftover chicken and get kids to eat more veggies. Using colorful, thin strips of vegetables adds visual interest when the wrap is cut into slices. Suddenly spinach is too pretty to refuse. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
Tired of turkey sandwiches? Try Beverly Graml's fresh-tasting adaptation—a warm spicy stir-fry tucked into pita bread. "A neighbor game me this quick-and-easy recipe years ago," she pens from Yorktown, Virginia. "It's been my most popular day-after-turkey dish ever since."
This is one of those recipes that cooks love because it's quick, easy and inexpensive. Brown sugar adds a touch of sweetness. In addition to rolls, the beef mixture is tasty over rice, biscuits or baked potatoes.
