Just some notes to friends

Italian Caprese Wrap with Fresh Basil, Tomato and Prociutto

This Wrap is so easy to prepare and it fulfilled my craving for a Fresh Caprese Salad and and Sandwich at the same time!

We have harvested some of our Roma Tomato’s from the plant that is producing like crazy.  Some people do not believe that you can grow Tomato’s in containers, but honestly here in Arizona where is is hotter than normal it is nice to move them around  for the best mix of sun and shade.  The one plant has produced at least 25 Roma’s since we we brought it home 1 month ago from..Costco!  Yes, Costco had big plants and this one came home with us.

Sliced and chopped ready to go

The Basil plants (3 of them) are also going crazy.  I have them in the shade and use the fresh leaves every other day it seems.  As I was assembling the Wrap, I decided to roll the leaves together and slice into thin strips, worked out perfect!

Layered and drizzled with Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil for a wonderful Finish

 The flour tortilla was warmed on a non-stick skillet for about 2 to 3 minutes per side over medium heat, then layered the filling in this order:  Fresh thinly sliced Mozzarella, Prosciutto, (I used 3 slices), Chopped Roma Tomato’s (3), then about 6 Basil leaves rolled and thinly sliced.  Drizzle some Balsamic Vinegar and I misted some olive oil over the top.  Fold like Burrito and cut in half.

Just Sliced!

Chicken, Bacon, Parmesan Ranch Wrap

This Chicken, bacon, lettuce and Parmesan ranch Wrap was delicious!

Chicken, Bacon Wrap

This wrap was like eating a Salad topped with chicken and Ranch dressing along crunchy bacon bits!

I have been craving this for the whole week and it has been a crazy one, that I just had to make this the first thing this morning.  I purchased a Rotisserie Chicken but I would have easily cooked up a chicken breast and sliced it up in to strips or chunks.  The best dressing for this is “Marie’s Parmesan Ranch Dressing” found in the Produce section of the Market.  It is full of wonderful flavors and I use it often not only on Salads but in Wraps like this one or as a veggie dip.

Again I used the flavored Mission Brand Tortilla Warps as I did when I made my Turkey Club Wrap in and earlier post.
