Texican Tuna Wrap

This is another mayo free, low carb way to eat your tuna.  I had this for breakfast and it held my monster appetite for most of the day.  The avocado and tuna keep you satiated while nourishing your muscles and stimulating your brown fat to consume your white fat (Mark’s Daily Apple does an EXCELLENT job explaining brown fat  http://www.marksdailyapple.com/a-primal-primer-brown-adipose-tissue/#axzz2qe2WYOwt  )

You don’t have to give up wraps either.  Many are laden with excessive calories and empty carbs.  I used Joseph’s Low Carb Tortillas.  With only 5g net carbs, fiber, and 60 calories, you can have your burritos guilt free, but not gluten free.  If you can’t find them in your grocery, usually near the deli, you can order them online through Amazon (what can’t you buy from Amazon these days?) or directly from Joseph’s:  https://www.josephsbakery.com/shop/authentic-lavash.html

Ingredients:

  • One Joseph’s Tortilla

    This is your arsenal.  The orange bottle, not included in the recipe is my homemade Habenero sauce...a recipe I will take to the grave.

  • 5 oz canned tuna in water drained—which yields 4 oz
  • ½ medium ripe avocado
  • Small handful of spinach
  • 1 tbs diced serrano, or pepper of your choice
  • 1 tbs diced Vidalia onion
  • *Sprinkle of salt-free southwest blend
  • 1 tbs torn cilantro
  • Tapatío hot sauce for drizzling and dipping
  *I used Market Pantry Southwest Chipotle Seasoning Blend available at Target.

In the Following Order:

  1. Mash and spread your ripe avocado on the tortilla.
  2. Add spinach, tuna, southwest blend, serrano, Vidalia onion, and cilantro.
  3. Roll it up, and drizzle Tapatío around the plate to dip your wrap.

The neat thing is you don’t need additional oil to uptake the nutrients from the spinach, serrano, onion, and cilantro.  The avocado does it for you!  You could also add–my favorite—Chia seeds which will keep you fuller even longer.  If you keep things prepped and handy, you can make this in five minutes.  Beat THAT McDonald’s!  Fast food doesn’t get any faster…
