Cajun Beef & Cheese Wraps

Cleaning out the cupboards is turning out to be not so bad after all. I found 4 sandwich steaks buried in the freezer so that went into planning my lunch, with leftovers for the kids to gobble up after school. I had 1/2 of an onion and green pepper left in the frig. from making spaghetti sauce. Those, together with the sandwich steaks, a couple of pieces of cheese, some canned mushrooms and some tortillas would be today's salvage.

Here's what I did:
Add 1/4 C. water to a medium-sized frying pan. Turn heat to medium-low.

Cut the 1/2 pieces of pepper and onions into strips, and then toss into the pan. Cook until tender crisp and all of the water has evaporated from the pan. Add 1 tsp. olive oil to the pan along with 1 small can of sliced mushrooms (drained well). Add 2 tsp. minced garlic and 2 tsp of cajun seasonings (the kind with no salt added). Saute until everything is heated through. Remove from pan and set aside.

Put pan back onto the stove. Slice or break frozen sandwich steaks into long strips and add to pan. Cook until all meat has been browned. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels.

To make 2 large wraps or 4 "kid" size wraps:
Lay a tortilla flat on a plate. On one side of the tortilla start with a layer of meat, followed by the onions and peppers, and then topped with 2 pieces of cheese. (I used Muenster). Roll up the tortilla, tucking the ends in as you roll it up.

Wash and dry the frying pan and put it back onto the stove on medium heat. Add the tortilla to the pan and turn to brown evenly all over.

Cut wrap in half and serve with a side of sauce*

1/4 c. mayo
2 TBSP salsa
