There is so much flavor packed in these colorful wraps: zesty jalapeno cream cheese, charred fresh sweet corn, creamy avocado and ripe summer tomato. And it's all ready in about half an hour..


  • 2 ears sweet corn, husks and silk removed
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3/4 cup jalapeno-flavor cream cheese spread
  • 6 9 - 10 - inches flour tortillas (burrito size)
  • 12 ounces thinly sliced cooked roast beef
  • 1 ripe medium avocado, sliced
  • 1 large tomato, sliced and cut into strips
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat grill or large skillet over medium-high heat. Brush corn with olive oil. Cook corn directly on grill rack or in hot skillet for 8 to 12 minutes, turning as it browns and lowering heat as needed until corn is tender with charring in spots. Cool slightly; cut kernels from cobs.
  2. Spread 2 tablespoons cream cheese on one side of each tortilla to within 1/2 inch of edge; arrange beef slices to cover.
  3. Place the grilled corn kernels, avocado, tomato and red onion in a 3-inch strip along one edge of each tortilla. Fold in sides and roll up. Cut in half to serve.
