Burrito bowls (best described as the contents of a burrito, minus the tortilla) are great and all, but sometimes, you crave the missing puzzle piece that holds it all together (literally). Tortilla wraps are typically made from flour. And if you follow a Paleo diet, this ingredient is a huge no-no. Perhaps you’ve resorted to eating these nudie burrito alternatives for dinner or lunch, but did you know you can still wrap it all up? This recipe calls for chorizo, ground beef, veggies and Paleo-friendly wraps made from coconut-derived ingredients and flavored with turmeric. Try this better-for-you burrito recipe, wraps and all, with some Paleo Coconut Guacamole on the side if you wish!
