Terri's Notes

~ Don’t let the easy prep fool you – these are WONDERFUL!
~ With a little tweak or topped with some salsa or pico de gallo, peanut sauce, sweet chili sauce, or… these can either take on the flavor of a different cuisine each time you enjoy them or just allow guests to customize their wrap!
~ Freeze a big bag to take on your next camping trip for a fast supper after the tent’s up!
