In my quest for low carb yummies, I am constantly trying to come up with flavorful & pretty things to eat. The visual impact on your palate cannot be ignored! Food should look as good as it tastes (when possible 😉
I believe in quick, easy, simple, healthy and tasty wraps that are a snap to fix!
This is my latest concoction, inspired by by friend, Teresa Winkles, and her low-carb spinach enchiladas.
I gathered my ingredients: whole wheat carb chopper tortillas, mozzarella cheese sticks, pepperoni slices, cream cheese, spinach, and Parmesan & Romano shredded cheese, and red pepper flakes….
Spread a heaping teaspoon of cream cheese thinly over your tortilla. Unless you’re still a kid who likes to eat dirt, I recommend that you rinse the spinach and pat it dry before applying it to the cream cheese base 😉
Sprinkle the cheeses and red pepper flakes over the spinach then lay down your pepperoni in a perfectly symmetrical pattern (for my OCD self & friends;)
Place your cheese stick on one side and begin rolling it up, burrito style, tucking in your toppings as you go.
Roll them up then secure the edge with a toothpick.
I used my Nuwave oven to heat these wraps because it’s quick, melts the cheese perfectly without over-melting it, and crisps the tortilla too. You can use a toaster oven, conventional oven or the microwave oven, although, you won’t have the crisp crunch with the microwave oven.
3 minutes on each side was pert-near perfect for these wraps.
Wait & watch impatiently, while your stomach growls, as your delicious wraps heat. The spinach will wilt to perfection, the pepperoni will be delicious, the cheese will be blissfully bite-able, and the tortilla will obtain the perfect crunchiness!
