Crispy Southwest Wraps

This is the third and final wrap I have to share with you this week. I knew this would be a hit with my family because of the tex-mex flavors!

Don’t let the long list of ingredients scare you a way. This is ready to eat in about 30 minutes, that is if you have leftover rice you are using. It’s the perfect way to use up leftover rice!

The wrap itself is tasty and flavorful, but what really makes it amazing in the creamy cilantro dipping sauce. My family raved about the sauce.  It just adds a cold creamy aspect to the warm, spicy, crunchy wrap. So don’t skip the sauce! If you really are opposed to cilantro though, serve with salsa for dipping instead.
