It's a Wrap!

Here are two really good sandwich fillings for whole-wheat tortilla wraps. The first filling comes from my son who is a terrific cook! It makes me so happy to say that and I’m sure it even makes his wife-to-be even happier! He serves this in lettuce leaves but I put the filling in whole-wheat tortilla wraps because his father would say-lettuce?? Where’s the bread? I thought I was having a sandwich?

Filling # 1 Super Tasty Artichoke Avocado Filling

1 can artichokes, drained and chopped
1 can hearts of palm, drained and chopped
½ English cucumber, sliced thinly
½ small onion finely chopped
1 poblano pepper finely chopped
½ bunch cilantro coarsely chopped
1 to 2 avocados chopped
3 T of white vinegar
Salt and pepper

Mix together all the ingredients—I put the avocado in at the end so it doesn’t get all mooshed up.
This is enough for 4 l0-inch tortilla wraps with some leftover.

Filling #2 Buffalo Chicken Wraps

Ever have a hankering for Buffalo wings but don’t want the fried food? Then, these wraps are for you: Buffalo Chicken Wraps!

1 large cooked chicken breast, chopped and mixed with 2 T Frank’s Hot Sauce (or other red pepper sauce)
4 T reduced fat blue cheese dressing
2 10-inch whole-wheat tortillas
1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
½ cup diced celery
½ cup diced cucumber
½ cup shredded carrot

Spread 2 T of dressing on each tortilla. Arrange rest of ingredients on tortillas, fold in sides and roll.

Pictures are before the wrapping!
