Wraps or sandwiches – which do you prefer?
Who loves wraps? Raise your hand.
Guess what? For the first dozens of years of my life, you would’ve found me sitting on my hands, hiding them, hoping that a wrap wasn’t on the restaurant menu. Surprised? Yeah, me too.
Over the years, I’ve ordered wraps in restaurants, and every single time, it meant only one word. Disappointment!
Well, disappointment no more – because I’ve discovered wraps made in such a way, that I’ll bet nearly everyone loves!
And now, I’m going to share this healthy recipe with you. And oh!…no worries, I’ll share all my wrap recipes with you, but let’s just take this one step at a time, shall we? 🙂
Ok, now you know how I sometimes say in a recipe 2 to 4 cups of spinach or <fill in any other ingredient>? I’m sure some of you are thinking “Come on, Kristi!!! How can I plan, man…if you don’t give me the exact measurements?” Well, let me answer that!
It depends on a lot of factors! Here’s just a few:
- What size of flour tortillas are you using? I have primarily one brand of tortilla I use because I love how incredibly soft, flexible and flavorful they are.
- How many people are you feeding? I only have a family of two, and although we eat pretty heartily, it can’t compare to a family of 4, 5 or more!
- What ratio of ingredients do you want in your wrap? We tend to love a lot of meat and lots of veggies, so it can make them tough to stuff – and it uses those precious (and costly) ingredients fast!
But, there is good news! The great thing about making wraps at home is:
- Your ingredients will be much fresher than any restaurants;
- You can stuff them the way you want them, without the tough budgetary constraints restaurants have to adhere to;
- They are really easy and fast to make! You can put them together faster than any service at a restaurant for a mere fraction of the cost! Who doesn’t love saving money?
What I love most about wraps though, is that unlike a sandwich that is heavy with carb-laden bread, flour tortillas are lighter and let you get the best of the goodies and ingredients inside!
Ok, so I need to know…Why do you love wraps? Or if you don’t, why not?

- ¼ cup fat-free mayonnaise
- 2 chipotle peppers, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon chipotle sauce from chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
- 4 to 6 soft flour tortillas
- 1 to 2 (6-ounce) packages of ready to eat (97% fat free) grilled chicken breast strips
- freshly washed spinach leaves (roughly 2 to 3 cups)
- ½ to ¾ red onion, sliced
- ½ to ¾ cup roasted red pepper, sliced
- ½ cup water chestnuts, chopped
- cracked black pepper, to taste
- Mix fat-free mayonnaise, chipotle chili peppers and chipotle sauce in a small bowl and set aside.
- Lay flour tortillas out flat. Spread chipotle mayo evenly on tortillas.
- Layer with chicken strips, spinach, red onions, roasted red pepper and water chestnuts. Season with cracked black pepper. Fold in each ends of the tortilla and roll until completely enclosed and folded. Slice in half and serve!
Also, we like a SPICY chipotle mayonnaise. If you're sensitive to heat, start with ½ or 1 chipotle pepper and no chipotle sauce. As I always say - taste as you go - this is what makes you a great cook for what YOU like. In this recipe, I used 2 large chipotle peppers and 1 teaspoon chipotle sauce from chipotle peppers in adobo sauce can.
