"The best things brought to the U.S. from Mexico are the tortilla and burrito. Now Americans steal it, and create this phenomenon called a wrap."
~Comedian George Lopez
LOL I guess that's true.
I love wraps. It's my sandwich alternative since I don't do bread. I have at least one a week. They are a perfect quick and easy no-cook or minimally cooked meal. Most are great cold but some are even yummier warmed a bit in a skillet or on a Foreman Grill. I eat 1/2 at a sitting usually with a little salad, sliced tomatoes, or olives.
I use Mission Brand Carb Balance Whole Wheat 6" Fajita Size Tortillas. They also come in Flour and 8" Burrito Size.
Here's the Nutritional Stats on the ones I use:

Tip: Not using your tortillas that quickly? You can freeze and then defrost them for later use. Just place them in an airtight container with a piece of parchment paper between each.
