These kid-pleasing wraps are perfect for a quick dinner or hot lunch. Chili sauce is similar to ketchup, and isn't spicy. Don't use Mexican chile sauce or Thai chili sauce, which are both very spicy.
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6 wraps
  • ½ cup finely chopped zucchini
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced (white bulb and green tops)
  • 1 pound extra lean ground beef (can sub lean ground turkey)
  • ½ cup chili sauce (the mild type, similar to ketchup)
  • 3 tablespoons firmly-packed dark brown sugar
  • 6 (8-inch) whole wheat tortillas (or gluten-free, if needed)
  1. Place the meat, zucchini, and green onions in a large skillet. Sauté over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, or until the beef is completely cooked through (with no pink or red showing). Break the meat into small pieces as it cooks. Drain and discard the fat.
  2. In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the chili sauce and brown sugar until the brown sugar is dissolved.
  3. Pour the chili sauce mixture into the ground beef mixture and cook over medium-high heat for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove the skillet from the heat.
  4. Place the tortillas on microwave-safe plate, and microwave on high for 20 seconds or until soft and warm.
  5. To assemble the wraps, spoon ½ cup of the meat mixture onto each tortilla. Fold the bottom half of tortillas up, and then fold each side in towards the center. Serve immediately.
Vegetable Options: You can substitute red or green bell peppers or summer squash for the zucchini, and/or diced yellow onion for the green onions.

Delicious Wrap Additions: We like these with sliced olives, chopped lettuce or baby spinach, sprouts, and/or other leftover diced vegetables or rice.
