“The name says it all! These are so nice to pop into the cooler & tote along to the ball game, going fishing, or just for a day in the park! Also good for those potluck dinners at church--a nice change from the usual casserole fare!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wrap tortillas in moistened paper toweling, pop in the microwave to warm slightly.
  2. Toast pecans in heavy skillet; when lightly browned, add sugar; stir until melted and sticking to nuts; set aside to cool.
  3. Peel & grate carrots; set aside.
  4. Set lettuce leaves with the carrots and nuts.
  5. DRESSING: In a small mixing bowl, combine all dressing ingredients, stirring to blend; set aside to meld flavors.
  6. FILLING: In a medium mixing bowl, toss all ingredients; pour dressing over filling and mix well.
  7. ASSEMBLE: Lay tortillas out on the table or counter; on the side closest to you, top with two (or more) lettuce leaves, followed by 1/6th of the grated carrots and 1/6th of the sugared nuts; finish with 1/6th of the filling; repeat with remaining tortillas.
  8. Roll tightly; fold sides in as you go and wrap securely in waxed or parchment paper place seam-side down.
  9. At serving time: Cut each wrap in half with the wax paper still around it.
  10. VARIATION: Before adding dressing to the filling ingredients, spread some over HALF of each tortilla before laying down the lettuce.
  11. SUBSTITUTION: How about crab meat for the chicken?
