Expert Tips

  • Look for avocados that are firm but yield to gentle pressure. If they are not quite ripe, place avocados in a paper bag and let ripen at room temperature.
  • While any lettuce will work in these Southwest Turkey Avocado Club Tortilla Pockets, we like romaine the best because it adds a nice crunch to the filling and won’t wilt as quickly as other lettuce varieties.
  • The pepper Jack cheese gives the tortilla pocket just a pleasant touch of heat, but if preferred, you can substitute cheddar or Monterey Jack.
