This is my entry for the Sandwiches, Sammiches & Sammies for the wk ending July 1, 2011. The ingredients given were hot sauce and red leaf lettuce, with roasted red peppers as an additional option.
I thought alot about this before making it, wanted to incorporate all the requirements and more...this is what I came up with! My husband, who is my chief tester and judge, gave it five stars...
It's not a fancy sammie, but has a great taste with a little tang! Hope you will give it a try and let me know your opinion! Enjoy!

How to Make HOT & SPICY MEATBALL WRAPS

Step-by-Step

  1. In large bowl, combine meat, onion, cumin, Mrs. Dash, egg and bread crumbs. Mix well to combine. Form mixture into 12 meatballs about 1-1/2" round.
    Bake in casserole dish @ 350°F for about 15-20 minutes, or until completely cooked. Take out and drain on paper toweling to absorb any grease.
  2. While meatballs are cooking, put all the peppers and tomato in small skillet with oil and cook over medium heat, covered, until tender.
  3. In medium bowl, combine sauce ingredients: mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and hot sauce. Blend well until combined.
  4. Heat the tortillas in microwave, on paper plate covered w/damp paper towelling, for about 10-15 seconds on low power to warm and make them pliable.
  5. Using spoon, spread sauce on center portion of tortillas, keep it 2-3' from edges. Layer lettuce, then pepper/tomato mixture, 3 meatballs (keep close together), and top with 1/4 of shredded cheese.
  6. Roll up fairly tight, folding in ends and then put edge side down on baking sheet. Bake @ 350°F for about 7-10 minutes, until wrap starts to crisp up. This also ensures the cheese melts.
  7. Put wraps on plates, cut in half and enjoy.
