If you’re in the mood for something that’s as tasty as it is nourishing, this Avocado Tortilla Wrap using the viral folding method is the one. The chipotle cashew cream adds a delightful smokiness, while the fresh salsa brings a pop of freshness that’s simply irresistible. It’s a lunch that you’ll not only enjoy but also feel good about eating. It’s super easy to put together and one we love to make on repeat for a quick lunch or snack!

Why This Recipe Works

  • Meal Prep Friendly: Make it in advance and enjoy a hassle-free lunch.
  • Nutrient-rich: Loaded with vitamins from fresh veggies and herbs.
  • Flavorful: The chipotle cashew cream and fresh salsa elevate this wrap to a gourmet level.

Avocado Tortilla Wrap Ingredients

  • Cashews: Provides creaminess to the sauce. Substitute with almonds if needed.
  • Chipotle in Adobo: Adds a smoky flavor. You can use smoked paprika as an alternative.
  • Nutritional Yeast: For a cheesy flavor without dairy.
  • Coriander: Fresh only for this one. Parsley would work too.
  • Wholemeal Wrap: For a source of whole grains. Opt for gluten-free wraps if you have an intolerance.

Step-by-Step Instructions

First, we prep the main elements of the wrap. Blend the Cream: Combine cashews, soy milk, nutritional yeast, and chipotle for a creamy, smoky sauce. Prepare the Salsa: Mix coriander, lime juice, tomato, and red onion for a fresh salsa.

Next, we prepare the wrap by cutting a small incision for easier folding. Add the main elements, each in a separate quadrant. Fold the wrap into a triangle shape by folding each quadrant over itself. Then grill on a pan for a crispy finish and cut with a breadknife to enjoy!

FAQ

Variations and Tips
