Recipe: Santa Fe Veggie Wraps



This recipe is almost whole foods friendly. That darn cream cheese stands in the way*.

What I say: "darn"
What I mean: "that glorious ingredient that is the key to this whole thing."

Don't skip it. It's not worth it.

This recipe is gloriously versatile. Pretty much as long as you remember the tortillas and the cream cheese you can pile on whatever veggies you like and have yourself a wonderfully fresh tasting meal. For dinner we did red bell pepper, jicama, avocado and red onion. For lunch the next day we were out of avocado and red bell pepper so I added shredded carrots, spinach and romaine lettuce.

Kristi, who originally posted the recipe, does lettuce, jicama, tomato, avocado, red onion, corn and beans. But we really dislike beans and mostly dislike corn at our house so we opted out of those.

Also, thanks to this recipe, I have discovered that I like jicama. Who knew?

*it has come to my attention that some cream cheeses ARE whole foods friendly. I am buying the wrong cream cheese!

  2. You don't like corn or beans? what is wrong with you! This looks delish AND it's mostly raw! Way to go!

  3. Wait - there is whole food cream cheese!?! Please share. Where do you get it? This is one of the only things that is holding back from going completely whole foods!

  4. Oh my heck... we made these for our camping trip. YUM. We topped them with a little organic salsa and queso fresco in addition to all the veggies and they were to die for.
