Spicy Chickpeas Sandwich Wrap

Wraps are easy to carry and definitely a filling meal one can have happily even if they are in hurry. Simple to make and healthy as well depending upon the filling you goes for. Most of the wraps are prepared with either meat or vegetables, i tried my hands in making a protein loaded nutritious wrap with a spicy chickpeas filling. Actually i was planning for a grilled vegetable wrap but some cooked chickpeas left in my fridge pulled me to make this super healthy and satisfying wrap. As i told in my previous post, this is my second post of tortilla based dishes. After chimichanga, this spicy chickpeas sandwich wrap was a big hit especially with my kids. H liked it but he asked some shredded chicken salad to have along with, he missed the meat part in this wrap, however we cant satisfy everyone at home.

Again, i used the homemade flour tortillas for making this incredible sandwich. Spicy chickpeas brings the spiciness while lettuce and cucumber took care of the crunchiness in this sandwich. You can easily pack this sandwich even in your lunch box. I used cream cheese as spread, obviously this wrap is prefect for any ages. You can make this wrap for a light meal and definitely a fabulous feast to whoever likes to have an easy,filling and satisfying meal. Am running my fourth week of blogging marathon with Tortilla based dishes as this week's theme.
