Quick Southwestern Wraps

Here’s a quick and easy dinner for the uninspired.

My mother-in-law whipped this up when we were visiting her last summer. We loved these so much that we brought the idea home with us.  What’s easier than heating up some refried beans, spreading them on a tortilla wrap, and then adding your favorite toppings?

This could also be converted to a gluten-free meal by using torillas like ones made by Food for Life.

You can also spice up the taste by using flavored torillas that can be found on your grocery aisle.  We like the sun-dried tomato tortilla wraps.

Make an assembly line of ingredients and let your children choose and assemble their own wrap. I find that if my children can help “make” the meal, then they are more likely to eat it.

Also, if you warm your tortilla up in the skillet first, it’s less likely to tear apart when you start to wrap it around the filling.

The ingredients are flexible, like a taco salad.  Choose what you and your family will eat. However here’s a simple guideline to get you started.
