It'd be awesome to add more vegetables inside each wrap too, like onions and tomatoes.

Adding ground turkey or turkey or chicken breast that is boiled and shredded.

This was one of the most enjoyable recipes I have tried. I also spooned a little peanut butter on each lettuce leaf before I added the beef to give some sweetness. Great recipe!

Sounds yummy! And versatile! I think I'll make it with turkey and add some ginger.

This recipe is really filling and good! I think next time I will add some extras (chopped veggies) to add a little more zip to the flavor.

Use greek yogurt on top -- it tastes like sour cream without the fat!

loved this recipe, had tomato/onoin salad with it. going to try it with mixed peppers next time and maybe a little chilli flakes.

Made a double batch with half beef and half ground chicken. It was good; I used a little asian chili sauce in the wraps. I should have let it marinate for longer than a half hours though...
