After School Snacks - Wraps!

Gotta love soft tortilla shells for wrapping up a quick snack for the kids after school.

You can pretty much wrap anything in these versitile shells. They come in 8" and approximatly 10" sizes.

Once you have placed your filling on the center, fold up one side about 1/8 of the way, this is the 'bottom', then roll from the side and voila! You have a wrap.

Some ideas of what to wrap:

~ Hot white chicken breast (cooked), drizzle ranch dressing and grated cheese, 2-3 slices crispy bacon and wrap. Optional additions: Shredded lettuce, onions, thin sliced tomatoes.
~ Any favorite chicken or tuna salad normally in a sandwich, spread on the tortilla, fold and roll.
~ Peanut butter and Jelly for the kids!
~ Peanut butter and Jelly Beans makes a fun one too!
~ Pizza wrap - 3 T pizza sauce, small handful of grated cheese, 6 pepperoni slices. Fold end and roll. Microwave for 20 seconds or until hot. Do not overheat as the edges will dry out.
~ Sprinkle grated cheese on the tortilla, spread on hot freshly scrambled eggs, add chopped ham or crumbled cooked bacon and fold and roll.
~ Smores Wrap - Spread a thin layer of chocolate syrup or sauce on the center, about 2" from the edges, sprinkle mini marshmallows and 1/8 cup crushed graham crackers, fold and roll.

See what I mean? There are endless possibilities with a flour tortilla shell! Let your imagination go wild!

If you have any other idea's for wraps please leave me comments with your ideas!
