That's a Wrap

Lately I have begun experimenting with wraps. I'm talking about those deliciously simple creations made by filling a soft tortilla with various ingredients, then wrapping them burrito style.  While the basis for the wrap is most decidedly south of the border, what you will quickly discover is that a wrap knows no geographic boundaries. Even better is the fact that you can create wraps using all kinds of ingredients.

When it comes to kicking your recipes up a notch or two, many chefs bring out the hot stuff.  By hot stuff I am referring to hot sauce, hot peppers, cayenne pepper, Cajun seasoning or some other form of enhanced seasoning or sauce.  Heck, some signature dishes have made a name for themselves strictly because of adding heat.  Buffalo wings is a prime example of this.
