NOTE from Pat - Local restaurants serve a similar wrap that is essentially a tomato and cucumber sandwich. The humus makes it addictive as does the flavored tortilla, also made locally: flour tortillas red with tomato, orange with carrot, or green with spinach or artichoke.
Variation: Wrap spread with citrusy humus from chickpeas, layered with lettuce, tomato, and cucumber wrapped in a warm tortilla and served with a fresh salsa of tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, garlic, onions, cilantro, salt and pepper: salsa ranchera.
