When I saw the recipe title for ‘Spicy Egg Wraps’ I figured it was for some kind of scrambled egg-chili mix rolled up in a wrap. Sounded good, so I bookmarked it and decided to make it for dinner last night.
I got out the ingredients and read through the recipe. Nope, no scrambled eggs here.
I was surprised to see that the egg was beaten and poured over the flatbread, that had been warmed in a skillet and cooked in that way. It formed an egg glaze, of sorts, on the flatbread. Really interesting. Topped with the slightly spicy, cool chopped salad, it was a real dinner winner. (The wraps would be perfect for any meal.)
1/2 cup shredded lettuce
2 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cucumber, chopped
2 Tbs cilantro, chopped
few pinches of chili powder
2 chapatis (Indian flatbread), tortillas or wraps
2 Tbs low fat yogurt
1. In a bowl combine lettuce, tomato, cilantro, and cucumber with a pinch of chili powder.
2. In a bowl beat eggs with some salt, pepper and a pinch of chili powder.
3. Put one chapati in non stick frying pan over moderate heat until toasted on the underside.
4. Turn chapati over and pour half of egg mixture over the surface, spreading to the edges. When egg has set around edges, quickly flip over, cook for a few seconds longer. (It is okay if the egg spills into the pan a little.)
5. Transfer to a serving plate with egg side up.
6. Repeat with remaining chapati and egg.
7. Spoon the salad mixture down the center of the chapatis; drizzle each with 1 Tbs yougurt. Roll up and serve.
Note: I tripled the recipe and kept the unfilled chapatis in a warming oven until all 6 were cooked with the egg.

I am loving this new song by California-based band, Cayucas. It screams sun, beach and fun. Heys and Ooohs…you can never go wrong with songs full of those sounds.
This is an older tune. Same catchy vibe.
Cayucas’ debut album ‘Bigfoot’ is due for release on April 30th.
Check out Cayucas on the band’s Website, where you can learn upcoming US and European tour dates and link to buy their music.
These weirdo egg wraps are so interesting I want to try them! It’s like a quesadilla except eggs instead of cheese. It sounds delicious as written, but my kids won’t go for the filling. I might try a very simplified version for breakfast tomorrow and save the real deal for the grown ups.
I have never seen a picture of Cayucas. They are cute. Are those sweaters supposed to be ironic?
The beauty of these wraps is that there are endless variations for the filling with the thin hint of egg.
Aren’t the band members of Cayucas adorable? Completely new to me before this week. And the sweaters….I don’t know the scoop. :)
