The original recipe I found seemed really delicious from the beginning since I like smokey flavors but I wanted to bring up the level of flavors just a little bit. So I started with a simple substitution of Asian sesame dressing instead of the Italian dressing I had used before. This mixture with ginger and soy sauce was added to the vegetable mix and definitely helped make for a great combination of flavors.

Then I decided after making a few of these wraps to change the recipe a little more. A simple change made a huge difference. By flavoring the tortillas with a mixture of spices and olive oil with butter, I was able to get a little more variety while using much of the same ingredients. The extra chili powder and pepper on the tortillas in these wraps gives the wraps a really good level of spiciness.

The extra seasoning definitely helps with devouring lots of good vegetables along the way. Since some of the vegetables in these wraps are said to help with all sorts of things from preventing some cancers, helping you have healthier skin health and even night vision, any new way to eat more is a great idea. Also, aside from being something fast, convenient and delicious to eat for a light meal or snack, you can even make these wraps the night before and take them to work, school, or wherever you are going.
