TIP: Try not to over-fill your wrap. You can stretch it near the end to tighten it up a bit. Let sit 5-10 minutes before cutting in half, this will firm them up. You will get better with practice and everyone with think you are amazing. Try adding proteins like shrimp, cooked egg, tofu OR chicken when having as a meal.
