Day 143 : Southwest Turkey Roll-Up

I am still knee deep in editing so no trips to the store today, but luckily I had a few things on hand just in case I got busy like this.  I had been meaning to try the cream cheese and this seemed like the perfect time.  I actually really liked this and could see myself making it often for lunch.  It reminds me a bit of those tortilla wrap appetizers with the cream cheese, peppers, olives, etc.  But also a little bit like a meat roll up since of course it has meat.  Best of both worlds!

You could use whatever turkey you wanted for this, I just happened to buy mesquite last time.  Also any color pepper would work, but I had a container of the minis on hand.  Since I am watching my calories these days I opted out, but I bet a bit of shredded monteray jack would be good in there too.
