Wrap It Up!

Wraps are awesome. They’re the most mysterious of lunch options. Here are two very different wrap recipes you can use to spice up your midday meal.

Spicy Taquitas

What is a Taquita, you ask? Well, it’s a self-invented amalgamation of a taco and a fajita. Also, it’s delicious!

What You’ll Need:

 Taco Meat

  • ½ lb. ground beef
  • 1/3 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup Chili Sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsp. chili powder

Fajita Toppings

  • ½ yellow onion, cut in thin strips
  • ½ green pepper, cut in thin strips
  • olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. crushed red pepper
  • pinch of salt
  • guacamole (follow this easy guac recipe here)
  • yellow corn
  • extra chili sauce
  • tortillas
  • butter
  • skillet (x2)
  • cooking utensils

How To Do It:

1. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees.

2. On medium heat, add all ingredients for taco meat. When meat is cooked fully through, remove from direct heat.

3. In a separate skillet, on low heat, add olive oil, green pepper, onion, crushed red pepper and salt. Allow to cook for approximately 20 minutes or until vegetables are soft.

4. Brush tortillas with butter and place them directly on the oven rack for approximately 10 minutes, or until crispy.

3. Gather remaining toppings, plus additional ones (cheese, sour cream, etc.) according to your liking, and fix your taquitas anyway you like. If you want to add some spice, add chili sauce directly on top. If you prefer milder flavors, stick to sour cream as your main topping.

 

 Funky Tuna Wrap

This wrap contradicts two age-old combinations: the tuna fish sandwich and humus. Tuna fish needs mayonnaise, right? Nope, not with this recipe. The humus, infused with sweet flavors of corn and craisins, also gets a flavor changeup. The end result surprises the taste buds in the best way possible. Once you try tuna the funky way, you’ll never go back to normal again.

What You’ll Need:

  • tortilla wraps
  • 1 can white albacore tuna
  • 1 cup Cray Humus (get the recipe here)

 How To Do It:

 1. Follow the recipe for Cray Humus.

2. Take a wrap and place a dollop of humus and a dollop of tuna. If you’d like, you can add lettuce, sprouts, cucumbers or other sandwich toppings you have on hand. Wrap your wrap and enjoy!
