Tex-Mex Burger Wraps

2 packets (1.25 ounces each) taco seasoning mix, divided
1 cup mayonnaise
4 hamburger patties (4 to 6 ounces each)
1 cup water
8 whole wheat soft tortillas (8-inch size)
1 large tomato, sliced
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
Taco sauce, any variety

Combine 1 packet seasoning mix with mayonnaise; mix well. Set aside.

Place hamburger patties in small casserole dish. Combine water and remaining seasoning mix; pour over hamburgers. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes.

Preheat grill until piping hot, about 15 minutes. Remove burgers from marinade; discard marinade. Place burgers on grill and cook to desired doneness. Remove from grill and cut in half.

Spread taco mayonnaise on tortillas. Place 1 hamburger half on top half of each tortilla. Add tomato, lettuce and cheese. Fold bottom half of tortilla over filling; fold sides toward center, leaving top open. Serve warm with taco sauce. Yields 10 servings.

NOTE: Turkey, chicken or veggie burgers can be substituted for hamburgers, if desired.
