Easy Southwestern Veggie Wraps

I developed this recipe when corn was in the farmer's market and big, red, juicy tomatoes were in my garden. To make this wrap light and healthy, I use fat-free sour cream, whole grain tortillas and brown rice. Although it's vegetarian by nature, change it up with a large chicken breast, diced small. —Cindy Beberman, Orland Park, Illinois

    This was good for a quick mid-week meal. The shallots were a little strong for me. I was missing cheese in this so I added just a bit before I wrapped them up.

    This was really good, and pretty quick to make. I left out the jalapeno since my son was eating it, but I bet it would be even better with it included. I added a little over a pound of chicken by cutting it up into bite-sized pieces, sprinkling it with salt and pepper, and then just cooking it in a pan. To compensate for that added ingredients, I doubled the sauce and spices and it was just the right amount of coating.

    These were delicious and my husband said this has to be a regular from now on. I think this would be good with plain yogurt in place of the sour cream.

    Really good lunch. I used greek yogurt instead of sour cream & added mexican blend cheese to wrap.

    Great tasting even without the rice. I didn't have cilantro which I think would have made it even better. For the kids sake I did not use jalapeno. Roma tomatoes are less juicy so I used those and left out the rice for a quick toss together for a meal. We all loved it! Definetly would make again with all the ingredients!
