After a long day at the office (or at the kitchen table for those of you who work at home), there’s nothing better than a filling meal you can throw together in under five minutes. Since we’re starving and eager to dig into our food as soon as possible, we rarely if ever pay attention to what we fill our bellies with.
Most of the time we go for a frozen pizza, some microwave noodles, or a quick BLT sandwich. This time, why don’t you try something different with the fresh ingredients you may already have in the fridge? All it takes is a bit of patience, we promise.
One of the most favorite ways to use up those fresh and/or leftover ingredients for almost everyone is to mix them up and create burritos and tortilla wraps. We can either cook some vegetables and wrap them up with some leftover turkey, or create an interesting way of eating our plain baked-potato-and-chicken lunch.
Take advantage of the freedom wraps give you and get creative. And if you’re currently looking for a fresh new idea for a wrap meal, as always, we got you covered.
Below there are the best ten wrap recipes we could find that are filling, healthy, quick to prepare, and you can have them any time of the day you want. What could be better than this?
