Chicken filled tortillas




Did I tell you, I love sandwiches & wraps. It's easy to put together so many different things to give you a filling and satisfying meal. You can make use of so many left-overs sleeping in your fridge and saved from "thrown to the garbage" climax. This is a stuffed Tortilla recipe, which was served for lunch one day, which was one of the rarest day when rice wasn't served for lunch. Hubby too was happy, for he wasn't forced to eat rice and yet had a filling lunch. Happiest was me, as I had the carrot cabbage mix in advance, which I used the previous day for toast and it was less time consuming, effortless and most importantly less dishes to wash. This truely was a life saver.
