Peanut, Peach, ‘n Pineapple Wrap
Why I Love This Recipe
Inspired by an all-time favorite, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, this wrap is easy and fun for kids to make. With the sweet flavor of fruit and the crisp texture of green pepper and lettuce, it’s a great way to fit one cup of fruit and veggies into a “wrap ’n go” meal.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 can (8 1/4 ounces) sliced peaches in juices, drained*
1 can (8 ounces) pineapple tidbits in juice, drained*
1/2 cup red or green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 (10-inch) honey-wheat or flour tortillas
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
3 cups lettuce (deeper-green variety), shredded
In a medium bowl, combine peaches, pineapple, bell pepper and cinnamon. Warm the tortillas**.
Spread 2 tablespoons of peanut butter on one side of each tortilla, leaving room on the edges. Spoon equal portions of the peach mixture over peanut butter, then top with lettuce. Fold the side and bottom edges of each tortilla toward the middle over the filling, then roll so the tortilla covers the filling.
*Tip: Mix the drained juices with your breakfast juice.
**To make them more pliable before wrapping, warm tortillas: - Microwave oven: 10 to 15 seconds on high heat - Oven: 3 to 5 minutes at 350ºF in aluminum foil - Stovetop: 15 seconds per side over medium-high heat in a large non-stick skillet
