Lately, a fast food idea known as a “wrap” seems to be taking certain parts of the country by storm. Simply a meal rolled in a flour tortilla, a wrap goes a burrito one better by expanding the possibilities for fillings. Gourmet combinations or ethnic inspirations, long-standing favorites, exotic ensembles, and countless vegetarian ingredients are showing up, cloaked in steaming tortilla “wraps.”
Though the idea has taken hold in upscale fast food restaurants, it’s also fast and easy to make your own at home. Kids love finger foods, but doesn’t everyone? And dinner is especially enjoyable for all concerned when it’s this easy to prepare and clean up, as well as fun to eat.
It’s easy to wrap-simply fold one end of the tortilla over the filling, turn in each side, and roll it up, burrito-style. Make wraps in the kitchen, and serve ready to eat at the table, rolled in waxed paper and stuffed into a basket. Or hand them out to enjoy at the game, tailgate picnic, or lunch by the TV.
