You take a bite.
The warm tortilla crunches soundly against your teeth, breaking into brittle shards as the delicious contents reveal themselves to your taste buds.
This is the ideal wrap—crunchy and light, simple enough to make on a weekday but good enough to bring to a potluck.
The best part is this: all you need is a broiler. No deep-fried oil explosions. No smoking hot griddle that could trigger the fire alarm at any second. No crazy kitchen gadget that you bought from a television ad one lonely Sunday morning at 4am.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that. *hides $30 avocado slicer*
Crispy Crunchy Wraps
Notes: This isn’t so much of a recipe as it is a technique. As such, feel free to improvise with the fillings!
- Wrap material: Flour tortillas (crisp up more easily than wheat or corn tortillas)
- Filling: Endless options, mostly depending on your mood. Experiment with grilled chicken, vegan meat alternatives, veggies and hummus, etc. You could even make this into a crispy bean and cheese burrito.
Prep the filling by cutting everything into strips. I used the most wrap-like ingredients I had on hand: seasoned brown rice, chicken, and lettuce.
Assemble the wrap.
Now fold it messily and place on a oven-safe object.
Broil for 4 minutes a side, watching closely as it browns.
The Extra Mile: Make the outside extra crispy and delicious. Before broiling, just brush on just a thin layer of oil.
