Made this for lunch and it was very tasty. Used a dried hot chilli as didn't have any others. Was wondering if it would be filling enough with only 1 wrap. It definately was. - 02 Oct 2012


Extremely quick and easy to make, and also very tasty! I made this vegan by replacing the cream cheese with coconut cream (I know, it doesn't sound too appetising) which gave it a nice consistency, but with real dairy cream cheese I'm sure it would be amazing! - 16 Jul 2012
