    Tortilla Wraps

    My husband and I have recently discovered tortilla wraps - we fill the tortilla with a mixture of chicken, bacon, onion and cheese - wrap up then put in the oven for 5 mins for the cheese to melt and the top of the tortilla goes crispy. Its delicious.

    Any other ides for fillings?

    I make these very frequently... Only, mine are not very planned or elegant. I use this as a way to keep from eating the exact same meal for a 4th day in a row.

    I use any left-overs I can find, usually rice, beans, and some kind of meat. I always add plenty of cheese. Baking is much healthier than frying, and frankly I think it tastes better too.

    Sometimes, I cover it with Sour Cream and/or Salsa.

    Anything you eat you can put into a wrap. Just like a sandwich- except that you don't have bits falling out.

    MrsW is Mexican, so has some great ideas.

    The kids love them. We just put out the tortillas, with the meat/vegetables/condiments. We just make sure they have a minimum of fresh vegetables.

    Typically, we will have on sort of meat (shredded chicken, cooked mince- even bolognaise- even ham, or chopped up leftover meat.). Usually, sour cream. "standard" cheese, or fetta cheese (there's a low fat fetta now which I like to use).

    Then we'll have chopped lettuce, onions, capsicum- whatever seems good.

    If you have one with standard cheese, it can be "dry fried" nicely. A non stick saucepan, heated up OK- but fold the tortillas in half instead of wrapping. Make sure you have some sort of sauce/salsa which you really like (eg, (fresh) tomato, guacamole, chilli, Tabasco). That allows the cheese to melt nicely and to make the sides stick together.

    I don't know if you would want to use this for dinner, but I make egg tortilla wraps a lot. They are very filling and VERY good. Sometimes I even put some veggies in there with there like an omelette wrap.

    Re: Tortilla Wraps

    Well, after reading all those nice filling ideas, could someone please enlighten me, a European, what is the 'tortilla' made of. Does one make them or do you just go and by them ready for use? Thanks.

    Re: Tortilla Wraps

    Tortillas can be made of flour or corn - http://www.tortilla-info.com/talk.htm

    They are bought ready made, or can be made at home. But, for a snack, as people are suggesting here, you could use any flat bread- say lebanese bread split in half.
