Restaurant Sandwich Recipe

I first had this Vegetable Wrap at a restaurant in Tucson, Arizona, when I was on vacation (a rare occurrence).

I enjoyed it so much I asked for the restaurant recipe. They respectfully declined and I understood.

So when I returned home I experimented until I thought I had it just right.

One of the "keys" to this recipe is to use a chili-tomato tortilla or a basil-tomato tortilla. It makes a difference.

I put it on the restaurant's daily special sheet and sold them out easily. I had another real restaurant recipe!

Favorite Restaurant Sandwich Recipe

Preparation time: 12 minutes. Serves 1-2.



  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon salsa
  • 1/4 cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese
  • 2 slices tomato
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup spinach  or lettuce leaves, shredded or folded
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
  • One 10 inch chili-tomato flour tortilla



  • Mix together the sour cream and salsa and spread on the tortilla and then layer the remaining ingredients on the tortilla
  • Fold in both sides and roll up tightly
  • Cut into two halves and serve

That's all there is to it!

Besides using the flavored flour tortilla, having a really good salsa and quality Pepper Jack cheese are the two most important things that make a difference between this restaurant recipe being "good" and it being a favorite restaurant sandwich recipe.

Enjoy your restaurant recipe for this vegetable sandwich wrap and the company of those you share it with!


“America, it has been observed, is not really a melting pot. It is actually a huge potluck dinner, in which platters of roasted chicken beckon beside casseroles of pasta, mounds of tortillas, stew pots of gumbo, and skillets filled with pilafs of every imaginable color."
