As you might have guessed from my partnership with Mission Foods, I’m a big fan of the tortilla. It has so many uses, from burritos, tacos and fajitas to quesadillas and a recent favorite of mine, the breakfast burrito.
Then we have the fried tortillas: taquitos, chimichangas and even migas. Or, on the other hand and end of the health food spectrum, you can use tortillas as a healthy alternative to sandwich bread. (I’ll admit: I’m a big fan of Applebee’s chicken fajita roll-up!)
But you can also use tortillas even more creatively than a myriad of Mexican dishes and the occasional wrap.
One of my favorite appetizers to make is tortilla pinwheels – cream cheese, green chilies and cheddar. YUM. I also like the pinwheels other people make with ham or turkey, although I can do without the type with olives.
Recently, I discovered another way to use tortillas: PB&J Banana Burritos.
When I saw this snack on the Mission website, I thought it would be a perfect treat to try out on Annalyn. (Especially since, as I’m still getting used to our new, stay-at-home schedule, I have completely forgotten to fix her an afternoon snack – more than once.)
It’s a simple recipe: First, get a tortilla, a banana and peanut butter and jelly. Then spread a line of peanut butter and a line of jelly on the tortilla. Wrap it around the banana and voila! You’ve got an easy, tasty, fairly healthy snack!
Notes from our tortilla experiment: The snack was a little hard for Annalyn to eat. I’d suggest using a smaller banana for smaller kids. Also, I’d suggest actually putting a couple “lines” of peanut butter on the tortilla. It will help hold everything together better – and taste better!
