Southwest Veggie Wraps

Having wraps on hand is essential when you’re vegetarian, in my opinion. There are so many different veggie mixtures that you can toss in there and warm up. For this specific wrap, warming it up isn’t necessary; it tastes good cold as well! Another great thing about these is you can change them up however you’d like so it fits your taste.

You just a few ingredients away from a deliciously quick weeknight dinner.

Ingredients

  • 4 wraps
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can corn
  • 4 c Spinach (or shredded lettuce)
  • Ranch Dressing*

Toppings

  • Salsa
  • Tortila strips
  • Shredded cheddar
  • Anything else you’d like!

*Note: If you want a little spice, use Chipotle Ranch instead of regular ranch dressing!

Directions

  1. In a medium sized bowl, mix together beans, corn and spinach.
  2. Add in enough Ranch to coat the entire mixture, but not too much so it is soggy.

For Cold Wrap:

  1. Place 1/4 of the spinach mixture into the center of a wrap.
  2. Top with cheese and tortilla strips. Add more toppings if you’d like.
    • The tortilla strips give these wraps a nice little crunch so I highly recommend not skipping out on those! I use Santa-Fe style tortilla strips. You should be able to find these in the produce section of the grocery store with other salad toppings (such as croutons and nuts).
  3. Wrap up and enjoy!

For Warm Wrap:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Prepare the wraps as described above for the cold method, placing the spinach mixture and toppings in the center of the wrap and then rolling it shut.
  3. Place wraps in a glass pan large enough that all the wraps fit side by side, but you aren’t struggling to fit them in.
    • If you are warming up all 4 wraps, a standard 9×9 pan should work. If you are only warming up two, place them side by side in a loaf pan.
  4. Warm in the over for about 15 minutes until all of the wraps are warm to touch.
    • If you touch the wrap and they are warm, but then when you pull them out the bottom is still cold, just flip the wraps over and place them back in until both sides are warm.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

 

These wraps are so quick and easy, and the recipe is more of a guideline than a strict list which is nice for those picky eaters. The fact that I can whip these up in 30 minutes or less on nights when I don’t get home from school until 9pm is an absolute blessing!

I hope you enjoy this recipe, let me know in the comments below if you decide to test it out for yourself!
