Our very own Station 2 won the 2003 Austin Fire Department’s Healthy Wagon Contest with this very healthful and tasty lunch/dinner wrap. The judges included three experts—the Fire Department’s in-house health specialist, a local representative from the American Heart Association, and a member of the Mayor’s Council for Physical Fitness.
The department also sponsored an awards presentation at which we received a little red wagon, a healthy low-fat cookbook, a salad spinner, and fifty dollars to use for a future healthy wagon.
This wrap also makes an excellent dinner.

Picadillo is a traditional beef taco filling that makes a terrific complement to potatoes, beans, and/or rice. Think of it as a cute little burrito.
We've simplified the recipe to create a healthy E2 version.
