When you have good leftovers that you need to repurpose, there is nothing better than to turn them into a tasty wrap sandwich. Whether you are following an urge for a certain taste or using the wrap sandwich for using leftovers, they make a fantastic base for a sandwich meal.
What can you use to wrap? I love a fresh flour tortilla. They are pliable and absorbent. These tortillas soak up the lovely flavors of the foods that you wrap. Naan and pita bread can serve the same purpose. A Chinese moo shu pancake works well, too. If you want to limit your carb intake, choose a wrap from LaTortilla Factory. They produce several varieties of low carb and high fiber tortillas that make excellent wraps. For small amounts of food, you can use plant leaves. Lettuce and bok choy both make crunchy wraps that have a low carb count. Here are 16 ideas for a variety of sandwiches that are all wrapped up.

Condiments help to make the wrap distinctive. Pico de Gallo adds tomatoes, onions, and cilantro all at once. Ranch is a good choice for many tasty wraps. Tomato based sauces, like marinara and salsa, add moisture and characteristic ethnic flavors. All of these condiments pull the ingredients together and bind them into your signature wrap.
