California Veggie Wrap
Ingredients:
1 tablespoon spreadable cream cheese
1 large flour tortilla, regular or flavored
2 tablespoons shredded carrot
2 tablespoons thinly sliced red or yellow pepper
2 tablespoons chopped red onion
1/4 cup shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 avocado, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup baby spinach leaves (or torn arugula)
1/4 cup alfalfa sprouts
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Spread cream cheese over the tortilla to within 1/2 inch (1 cm) of the edges.

Arrange all the filling ingredients in a row along the center one-third of the tortilla. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Roll the tortilla up as tightly as possible to enclose the filling without tearing the tortilla. Cut in half crosswise and eat immediately, or wrap both halves in plastic wrap to pack into a lunch bag.
