All year long I love to make combinations of fillings for flour or corn tortilla's to fill with everyone's favorites. I really love the freshness you can create with these delicious wraps. Being I work all day, this is a perfect filling to throw together the night before and cook while I am gone. Coming home to a great meal with these overly stuffed tortilla's with a variety of toppings, really helps out allot and feeds many without costing a small fortune. Easy, quick and delicious, my kind of meal.
