Tortilla Wraps

I have always loved tacos; but when Dianne served the soft version of it using tortilla wraps, I loved it even more. I told Dianne I'd try to serve it in our house one time, and I made this just two weeks after I ate Dianne's version of the dish.

This dish was inspired from what Dianne served, but this recipe was my own adaptation.

Mise en place

Tortilla Wraps

Tortilla Wraps
{Makes 6 Wraps}

  • 6 pieces tortilla wraps
  • 250 grams ground beef
  • 1 small head iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 1 small tub yogurt
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • lemon juice or regular white vinegar, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoons sugar (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 medium sized onion, minced
  • 2 medium sized tomatoes, chopped
  • grated cheddar cheese
  • hot sauce
How to Cook:
  • Saute a bit of minced onion in very little oil (about 1 tablespoon) and add the beef. Continue sauteeing it until it's cooked. Discard any rendered fat, and season with salt and pepper.
  • Mix yogurt with mayonnaise and add lemon juice or vinegar according to your taste. Add the garlic powder and whisk. Season with minimal sugar, salt pepper.
  • Prepare the mise en place - put each of the ingredients in individual bowls and let your guests or your family prepare their own wrap.
  • To assemble, get one tortilla wrap, put in each ingredient one by one in the middle, and wrap the filling. Eat.
Notes to Consider:
  • You can use any kind of tortilla wraps for this dish, I used the whole wheat ones.
  • Heat up the wraps before you serve, but don't toast them.
  • There is no wrong or right amount of filling to be used - just go with your own taste, just be sure you don't add to much or you won't be able to wrap it anymore. :)

This one was much easier to eat because it wasn't really messy, but of course, I'd still want to eat tacos because of its texture. Well, soft or not - taco shells or tortilla wraps, I think I have found a good way of eating it. The yogurt/mayo mix was really a good discovery. Thanks for the tip, Dianne!

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
