From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...It was hot today. While you couldn't cook an egg on the pavement, the heat quickly wilted anyone trying to work in the sun. I wasn't in the sun, but I used it as my excuse for making such simple meals today. I managed to get bagels with assorted toppings on the table for breakfast and we had grilled pizzas for dinner. Lunch was a bit more involved, but with the help of a frozen potato soup, thawed, but served cold, and sandwich wraps we manged to keep body and soul together. The wraps are a much simplified version of the Southwestern Wraps I featured on the blog in February, and while they are easy to prepare, they don't lack for flavor. I made a pico de gallo that had some heat and I used pepper jack rather than cheddar cheese because that was what I had on hand. Needless to say, our wraps had attitude. While I like this recipe for its ease, the Silver Fox likes it for the flavor of the wraps it produces. If you are looking for something simple to prepare on hot summer days, do give this recipe a try.
