IMGP3672VEGGIE WRAPS

15 oz. can Refried Beans
8 oz. Cream Cheese
10 Soft Flour Tortillas
2-3 cups of assorted salad veggies (or leftover tossed salad)
4 oz. grated cheese (cheddar, monterey jack, jalapeno)
Salsa
Sour Cream

Thinly spread soft flour tortillas (@ room temperature) with cream cheese and/or canned refried beans from edge to edge.

Sprinkle surface of each tortilla with assorted chopped veggies (lettuce, tomato, green or red pepper, carrots, celery, spinach, broccoli, black olives), and cheese.

Top with salsa and/or sour cream.  Roll tightly into logs.  Let sit for 5 minutes.  Then slice and serve.

Mediterranean Rollups:  Instead of cream cheese and refried beans, use homemade or store bought hummus.  Top with tomatoes, feta cheese, and chopped mint before rolling into wraps.

Oh WOW! I love this simple idea. My kids don’t seem to like veg much unless its well hidden, or a fun way of eating. I will definitely try this, no matter how bare the cupboards are I always have cheese, tortilla wraps and salad..makes a change from a jacket potato, and the spice will make my 4year old boy come back for seconds! Thank You!! I am a fish only (no meat) eater, so high protein fun food is essential. Yey – I can’t wait!

Excellent!

Like you, we almost always have stuff for wraps on hand. Sometimes, we just cut them into “cigars.” Other times, into bite sized pieces that look like pinwheels.

It’s a wonderful way to disguise veggies. : )

The last recipe at the bottom, Mexican Curry, is similar to a chili. Only it’s primary seasoning is curry powder, rather than chili and cumin.
