Chicken bacon mushroom blue cheese spinach wrap Whew! That's a mouthful!

My husband is crazy for blue cheese! The other night we were watching Alton Brown whip up blue cheese stuffed steak and I thought there would never be an end to all of the ooooohs and aaaaaaahs!

I have to admit, I am a very bad wife. I think I've only purchased blue cheese crumbles once in 16 years and never have I purchased a block of blue cheese!

I honestly don't know what came over me at the grocery store yesterday. I usually try to make healthy, low-fat meals, but as I was pushing my little red cart past the Trader Joe's cheese section a voice from heaven called to me and said, "Buy your husband a block of blue cheese!". Okay, that voice thing didn't really happen. I did, however, spot the blue cheese and my brain threw together a crazy good wrap idea.

I quickly made a u-turn and headed back over to the produce area to pick up a bag of baby spinach and some sliced crimini mushrooms.

Next, I grabbed a jar of TJ's blue cheese dressing (killer stuff, you must try!), some bacon, chicken tenders, and tortillas.

Beaming from ear to ear like a total spaz, I approached the check stand, and the Hawaiian-shirt-wearing manager asked me what I had planned for the day, of course, I just had to share!

There is just way too much deliciousness going on here! I can't believe the tortilla can stand to keep itself wrapped up! ;0)

Oh, holly tortilla! For once you were a good wife :))), my husband says I'm trying to kill him if I buy a piece of cheese
Looks like a killer, really, the tortilla, I mean, and I mean it positively

Pam said...

I'm not a huge fan of blue cheese, I like it in teeny tiny amounts. But on something like this, it sounds pretty darn good.

Angie's Recipes said...

You could have rolled me right up in there and I would have eaten my way out and not left a crumb on your counter :) YUM!!!

Jeannie said...

The imPerfect Housewife said...

I want so much to like blue cheese but I keep trying and keep not liking it. I WILL substitute something though in this recipe for it because those wraps look AMAZING!!!!!!! You are just too good ~ ♥

TKW said...

I'm a blue cheese lover like your hubby! This looks sinful!

noble pig said...

Wow, I would be all over this, I mean I love blue cheese too...especially with bacon.

Ms Bibi said...

That looks so delicious. I didn't even have my breakfast yet and I am already thinking...lunch.

Claudia said...

We are a blue cheese, gorgonzola, stilton family. I don't take huge mouthfuls - but it does add some creamy zest to everything. Love what you did with it. (Then there's the bacon.... don't get ne started on the bacon...) I must watch cooking shows. I ahven't in ten years!

Randi Troxell said...

i don't do mushrooms.. AT ALL.. but i know for a FACT that hubby would DEVOUR this!

spike. said...

That looks amazing! what a treat-my lunch today is sad in comparison

Megan said...

Wow! Your husband must have been pysched! I don't know what it is, but in the last year or so, I've really started to veer toward blue cheese. It used to be that I could take it or leave it, but now when I'm around it, I want it. This wrap looks like one of your best so far to me!!

Julia said...

That's it! I am coming to "mom-nap" you for a month so you can cook for MEEEEEE! Only MEEEE!!! That looks amazing and tasty and wonderful. Dang it I want one NOW!

Why do I bother coming by you site? I just don't know any more... It's torture.

;)

This is our kind of wrap! We love all cheeses, especially blue. Delish!

Chiara "Kika" Assi said...

I loooooove blue cheese. Last time I was in Italy I bought a slab of gorgonzola (it was ridiculously cheap!) and proceeded to eat the WHOLE THING that night in front of the tv. I made myself nauseous, but it was totally worth it. So I definitely understand your husband's love for it... and this wrap looks really really yummy, if it weren't for the fact that I would eat the whole hunk of cheese with a spoon!

Blue cheese is one of my favorites too. Great looking wrap.

For some reason, this sort of reminds me of the Chicken bake from Costco except that it's in a wrap form and so much better.

BarbaraJean said...

C says this looks very good. I agree and would love to try them. C wants to know if you have ever tried gravy poached eggs? He said my gravy is so good he thought of a recipe for those. Hmmmm. Well, who knows. Anything is possible!

Joanne said...

I am a blue cheese fiend as well and you have me seriously drooling here.

The TJ's cheese section is intense. It makes me want to eat cheese every day for the rest of my life.

teresa said...

oh my gosh, it just keeps getting better and better! my stomach is quite jealous of your hubby right now, what a wrap!

Rambling Tart said...

Oh my goodness! This looks amazing! :-) I'm a huge blue cheese fan and all the other bits with it?! YUM!

Chef Aimee said...

OOOH! OMG awesome! I have leftover blue cheese dressing from my potatoes this week...now I know where is going. YUM!

Suzi said...

No, no, no, no, if Julia Mom-naps you then I am going to force my way in so I can try the goods. I am so loving this. I may have to try it on my sister and BIL (who, by the way, is a chef).

Krista said...

This looks amazing! I'm glad that you gave into your husband's bleu cheese craving. I'm coming around to the idea of bleu cheese myself, and this makes me want to buy some like, now!

jenjen said...

Those look soo good! I really need to make that. I am printing if off right now. What would I do without you? We would probably be eating mac & cheese every night :)

XOOX
