This recipe is one of my all time favorite’s.  I still have not met the student that does not like this dish.  They get to prepare their own wrap using the alternative ingredient “lettuce” instead of a corn of flour tortilla.  It's also great fun. Give this one  a try at home and you will see what I mean!
