Wraps are my jam,
but that's not tragic;
Gimme a flour tortilla
and I'll make some magic
Okay, it's a safe bet that I'll never make a living in the hip-hop industry. But although rap stardom isn't in my future, I've got a pretty shot at WRAP stardom. And you can, too!
Fun fact: the invention of wraps (sandwich filling in a rolled tortilla) is credited to a professional baseball player, Bobby Valentine, in 1982*.
It's hard to believe it took so long for such a simple, yet genius, idea to be discovered. Wraps are quick, convenient and infinitely versatile; you can pretty much wrap up any delicious filling to create a little hand-held masterpiece.
With a bountiful crop of produce this season, I recently took a trip out to the backyard garden and assembled a few fresh ingredients, flour tortillas and some of my favorite Tastefully Simple products into three scrumptious varieties of wrap:
Pistachio Chicken Salad Wraps. This chicken salad recipe, bursting with sweet grapes and crunchy pistachios, is my go-to for my summer tea parties, when I serve it on croissants. But I love it even better in a soft tortilla wrap. Just heap a half cup of filling in the middle of a tortilla, roll 'n wrap and lunch is ready. Time-saving Tip: Cook up a batch of Magic Chicken for the freezer so you'll have perfectly seasoned chicken on hand for these wraps.
Bayou Bourbon BLT-A Wraps. The succulent brown sugar bourbon sauce is the secret ingredient that takes the standard BLT to new heights. Thick bacon, brushed with Bayou Bourbon Sauce, is baked to crispy perfection and wrapped up with avocado mayo, lettuce and tomatoes.
Pesto Egg Wraps. Why save wraps just for lunch? Made with Dried Tomato & Garlic Pesto Mix, these zesty, cheesy breakfast wraps are as fresh as a spring morning. I substituted diced tomatoes right from the garden for the sun-dried version in the recipe. Now THIS is an egg-stra delicious way to start the day!
These are just three options to get your start on your road to wrap stardom. Check out dozens of other recipes at tastefullysimple.com and you'll be ready for the wrap 'n roll hall of fame!
