Autumn Wrap

My kitchen changes with the seasons and this wrap seems to match autumn so well.
Healthy and delicious and out of the ordinary. Enjoy!

1 medium acorn squash (unpeeled), cubed
6 ounces applewood-smoked bacon (in one piece), cubed
6 leaves sage, chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
4 whole chives, chopped
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 pound maple-glazed roasted turkey breast, sliced 1/2 inch thick, cubed
1 Bosc pear, diced
2 cups kale salad mix or torn kale leaves
4 10-inch whole-wheat tortillas
4 ounces gorgonzola or other blue cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or hazelnuts (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Toss the squash, bacon, sage and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast, turning once, until the squash is tender and the bacon is crisp, 20 minutes.

Whisk the chopped chives, vinegar, olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Add the squash-bacon mixture, the turkey, pear and kale; toss. Season with salt and pepper.

Warm the tortillas in a dry skillet over medium heat, 30 seconds per side. Spoon one-quarter of the turkey-squash mixture down the center of each wrap. Top evenly with the gorgonzola and nuts. Roll each into a cone shape and tie closed with a whole chive.
