California Taco Flatbread
- 2 Flatout® Flatbreads
- 8 ounces ground beef
- 2 teaspoons taco seasoning
- 1 romaine lettuce
- 1 cup grated Mexican cheese
- 2 cups tortilla chips
- Fresh salsa
- Chopped cilantro (optional)
Place both flatbread wraps on a wooden cutting board. Discard the outer leaves of the romaine lettuce and chop the end root part off. Rinse the leaves under some cold water and shake to get rid of the excess. Chop the leaves into thin strips and divide between the two wraps. Heat a small pan over a medium heat and add the ground beef.
Break up the beef with a wooden spoon and add the taco seasoning. Stir well until the beef is no longer pink. Spoon some of the beef onto the wrap beside the lettuce. Divide the cheese between each wrap. Crush the tortilla chips with your hand and sprinkle over the wrap fillings. Spoon a few dollops of guacamole on top.
Take the edges of the wrap and turn them inwards, at the same time starting to roll the wrap away from you creating a tube shape. Keep the wrap nice and tight with the seam side down. Cut the wrap in half and serve with fresh salsa and more tortilla chips.
I love sandwiches and wraps almost equally, but if someone forced me to choose between them (worst scenario ever) wraps would win all the way.
For me it’s the ease. If you pick up a sandwich, there’s always a chance that some of the filling will fall out. If a wrap is made properly, the filling is staying in there until the last bite and you can eat it with one hand! Flatout Wraps are perfect for the job.
Wraps usually always tend to be salad based so I added my other favorite snack to it, the taco. I took all of my favorite flavors and toppings from a taco and just layered them into one of Flatout’s Sea Salt and Crushed Black Pepper wrap. Each wrap has 12 grams of protein and only 10 grams net carbs and it still fits into the salad category in my opinion with numbers like that. There’s loads more wrap flavors to choose from but this flavor has been one of my favorites so far. My kids loved this Italian Herb Wrap filled with chicken and apples.
Fill your wrap with chopped romaine lettuce and add spiced ground beef, cheese, guacamole, salsa and crushed tortilla chips. I love still getting that tortilla crunch when I bite into the wrap. You can easily switch things up to your own tastes. Use any kind of lettuce and add cilantro or sour cream. Don’t forget the golden rule of wrap-making though…don’t overstuff it and keep it nice and tight when you roll the wrap together.
Slice the wrap in half and dip it in some spicy salsa or fresh guacamole. Lunch should always be this easy, right?
