Low-carb Ground Beef Wrap


LRM_EXPORT_413633123310126_20190718_104751717.jpeg

I was going through the food that I have in my fridge and wanted to throw a quick lunch with what I have available.

I call it low-carb since am using just one medium flour tortilla which has a bout 18 grams of carbs whereas wheat flour two slice bread has about 25 grams of carbs. Normally, I'd have some sandwich if I want a quick meal and have some carbs in my diet for that day.

I made my own ground beef filling, and just add a bunch of spices that I have in my pantry. There's no exact measurement, I just guess estimate so, you can adjust the flavor to your liking. Remember to always taste your food when cooking! ;)
