Faux Crab Salad Wraps

We are not huge sandwich eaters and never have been even when all of our kids were at home.  We like our burgers and BLTs or an occasional power sandwich.  My husband likes the occasional grilled cheese but for the most part we certainly do not eat sandwiches in the same degree as many families.  We use wraps as many would use sandwiches so I was quite happy to find Old ElPaso Smart Fiesta whole grain tortillas.

Tortillas are easily made at home but it is convenient to buy them pre-made.  I like that I can buy whole grain tortillas for the same price as regular tortillas.  Old ElPaso is a brand I trust so I really am glad they introduced whole grain tortillas!  I like visiting the Life Made Delicious website more easy recipes using these tortillas. 

A couple of days ago I posted about faux crab dip.  I had a half of a package of the left-over imitation crab meat to use up.  I made faux crab salad wraps for lunch.  This is one application where I do feel the imitation crab meat works quite nicely.  It has a nice texture quite suitable for wraps.  I won't be using the imitation crab meat again is because of the high sugar content since my husband has impaired glucose tolerance.  I will substitute with a firmer textured fish for these wraps.  Of note though is the way I put the wraps together.  I placed the salad filling on a lettuce lined tortilla then wrapped with the lettuce first and overwrapping with the tortilla.  This technique prevents the tortilla from getting soggy due to the filling.
