I didn’t really consider sharing this recipe here, since it seemed TOO simple, and is not really a recipe, but more of an idea.

That’s where I first fell in love with wraps. It was the one meal that I actually enjoyed with a nice side of crunchy pretzels.

You can play it up with other flavor combinations and different ingredients, such as avocado, bell peppers, roasted red peppers, lettuce, etc. There is nothing cafeteriash about this wrap – it’s headed for the hall of fame. …
