This is a fast, tasty, and healthy recipe. I cooked it as the recipe says for parents of preschoolers. They all liked it and said most of their kids did too. 4 food groups in one great wrap.  

We made these over Thanksgiving weekend with leftover turkey - tasty and so easy!

This is one of my family's favorites recipes! It's so tasty and versatile - we love it with chicken and garbanzo beans. We often use spinach instead of lettuce. Recently, we did not have tortillas and so made it as a salad - it was great!

Substituted orange pieces for mandarins and spinach for lettuce. Made 2 full size wraps. Tasty!

I made this recipe for my 3rd graders, and subbed garbanzo beans for the chicken. I thought it would be too strong of a flavor for kids, but they liked it. One problem with the beans is that they rolled out too much, so I'd suggest using larger tortillas and possibly mashing the beans a bit, but the recipe was great. I've made it at home a few times, and my family enjoys it.

I thought the garlic/soy/mayo spread would be too *strong* for a classroom of kids, but they all liked it! (Well, most of them did!).  We used the green, spinach tortillas for a St Patrick's Day treat.  Very festive and healthy too.
