Finally got all the ingredients together to make the infamous “crack wrap” that K over at K’s Good Eats always features on her blog. Don’t know why I waited for so long because “crack wraps” are flat out AMAZING. I was so excited that I had to tweet about it ASAP. Check out the twitpic here. The innards consists of Sonny & Joe’s Hummus Gailee, TJ’s Spicy Black bean Dip, slice of TJ’s Swiss cheese, all wrapped in a piece of Flatout multigrain with some Don Sabrosa Roasted Garlic Salsa on top. I had some F&E Grape tomatoes (only 98 cents for 10 oz) on the side as well. With all the ingredients all inside, I folded the wrap and placed it in my Geroge Forman grill for about 5-6 minutes. The cheese, hummus, and dip all melted into yummy goodness and the wrap was toasted and had a little bit of a crunch. I felt like I was eating a quesadilla. The salsa on top added more flavor, not that it wasn’t flavorful enough already. I was surprised that the cheese melted so well (usually this cheese gives me a hard time), must be the even heat distribution from the grill. Lunch was the best I’ve had in a long time. Must repeat tomorrow.
Okay, so back to the wraps. I first saw Flatout wraps at Super-walmart for about $2.50, but I still had a stash of La Tortilla wraps to finish up so I had to let it past. Later on I noticed that my Costco carries Flatouts for a good price ($6.29 for 3 pk of 6 count each). By then I was ready to restock on wraps so I picked some up. Flatout carries a lot different varieties, but multigrain was the only one Costsco carries so multigrain it is. Other varieties include: Original, Italian Herb, Sun dried tomato, Garden Spinach, Southwest Chipotle, etc. They also carry a light, healthy grains, minis, and kidz line as well. The shape of Flatout is best described as a oblong shape. Think a rectangle with the corners cut off. One wrap is 100 calories, 1 WW, 2.5 grams of fat, no cholesterol, 380 grams of sodium, 17 grams of carbohydrates, 8 grams of dietary fiber, 1 gram of sugar and 9 grams of protein.
The texture of the wrap is thicker than La Tortilla and holds up really well. Since these are thicker, I think they are great for toasting up (ie “crack wraps”, panini wraps, pizza). Very hearty and satisfying. There was so much flavor going on in my wrap that I did not really taste the flavor in the wrap itself. Strongly suggest that everyone try a “crack wrap” ASAP. You’ll be surprised at how filling the wrap is.
