NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — With a nod to Cinco de Mayo, we’re sharing 5 Trader Joe’s tortillas and wraps that you can feel good about.

Tortillas and wraps make it super convenient to have a healthy meal or snack anytime; they’re portable, won’t get soggy like a sandwich, and they’re also easy to pack for travel.  They’re also incredibly versatile:

  • Burritos, tacos, wraps, quesadillas – of course.
  • Pinwheels: Roll with any combo of veggies, spreads, cheeses, lean meats and more + slice into pinwheels
  • Sweet treat: layer with Swerve-sweetened cream cheese and sliced fresh fruit or spread with a bit of nut butter and a little drizzle of honey or sliced bananas.
