Wraps are a fresh change of pace from sandwiches and about as easy to make. The tortilla is a flatbread made from corn or wheat. The word “tortilla” comes from the Spanish word “torta” and translates “round cake.” When Spanish explorers discovered the Aztecs making unleavened flatbread, they called it tortilla ~ little torta.
Tortillas have been made for centuries in Mexico and with the growing demand for Mexican food; they are especially enjoyed in North America, Europe and Eastern Asia. Tortillas are generally prepared with meat for making burritos, tacos and enchiladas. And this is the way I decided to make ours after reading the recipe in a magazine ad for Johnsonville Chipotle Monterey Jack Cheese Chicken Sausage.
The sausage is smoked chicken laced with savory Jack cheese, having a full-bodied spicy chipotle pepper kick. These wraps make for an easy quick meal that’s tasty with the sausage and fresh vegetables. They’re just right wrapped tight and drizzled with lemon juice!
Chipotle Chicken Sausage Wraps
1 medium onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped

In a large skillet, sauté the onion, pepper and corn in oil until tender.
