mango, pork and avocado wraps

  • 1 cup cooked pork, cubed (I used some boneless pork chops that were on special)
  • 2 large mangos, peeled and cubed
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • your favorite sandwich wraps
  • mayonnaise
  • adobo (I've been rocking the light variety)
  • fresh cilantro, chopped fine
  • half of a lime

In a small bowl combine about 1/4 cup of mayonnaise with cilantro, a few shakes of adobo, and juice of half the lime. Stir together until fully combined. Assemble wrap by spreading mayo mixture on 1 side and placing equal amounts of avocado, mango and pork in center. Wrap it up and enjoy!

The dish: My wife is known for many things; her ravishing beauty, her sharp wit, her ivy league education, her irreproachable selection of husbands. One of her lesser known attributes is her ability to roll a wrap like nobody's business. This no doubt stems from her brief stint in the budding moments of the 1990s as a Taco Bell employee. She's a quick learner with great retention and here, many sunsets later, she can construct a wrap that is the envy of all. I am truly covetous of this, as I, someone who has some serious deli cred, can wrap about as well as I can play the accordion (read: not so hot). Working together is the foundation of any solid relationship and I'm proud to say that we get along as well as mango and pork (and avocado and cilantro lime mayo). The personalized plate was a Christmas gift from my mother-in-law and I find it fitting that it is showcased in this recipe which parades one of her daughter's greatest talents.


  1. That picture looks like it should be on a menu cover. It should come with a disclaimer, "Wrapped by a professional. Your results will vary".

  2. for real- my wraps have more stuff falling out of them than kids out of Nadya Suleman's uterus
