    Wonderful recipe. I used chili powder instead of cayenne pepper and it worked great. This will be a regular for me! - 3/23/11

    added a tiny bit of lowfat cream cheese which also helped hold the wrap together without leaking. Yum - 1/3/12

    Am I crazy or does the picture show beef strips? Because the recipe calls for ground beef! Is this picture really of this recipe? And what is HCG? - 6/18/13
