I love wraps! The flavored flour tortillas you buy in the store are disappointing...they just have that "packaged" taste - not to mention all the preservatives! The ones pictured are garlic parmesean - I thought they would make awesome chicken ceasear salad wraps. I've also given other suggestions for different flavors - sun dried tomato and herb, and a jalapeno ranch. Play with your food and let me know if you come up with any other flavored tortillas!

Original flour tortilla recipe found online. It's one of my favorites (:
