Reviews for Three-Pepper Beef Wraps
"They are pretty good but a bit bland.Next time I will add fresh garlic.I cut the calories in half by omitting oil,steaming veggies in microwave and reducing hamburger to one cup as well as dividing into 10 servings with one tablespoon of cheddar cheese instead."
"I made these as described, but I added 2 chopped Serrano peppers (seeds removed) to the meat mixture. This made it a bit spicier without being overwhelming. Also, I used a tad more salsa for moisture (more like 1 cup compared to 3/4 cup)--and I used Medium salsa (any brand will do, but I looked for one with similar ingredients such as red and green peppers). Another hit: use the flavored "wrap-style" tortillas--they are huge, I know--but they are designed for this kind of recipe. I used the Jalapeno Cheese-flavored wraps by Mission Tortillas, and they were so good!"
