    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

    Yum! I used 93% lean ground turkey (1 lb - dinner for me + hubbie & plenty of leftovers for lunch). I put salsa on the romaine lettuce leaves before adding the meat. Will definitely make again. - 4/30/15

    I made this tonight and loved it! I cooked my premeasured HCG p2 separate by following the recipe and then made the same thing using a lb. of lean ground beef for my family. I added a dash of Worcestershire and ketchup. I mixed some Southwestern Seasoning mix with ranch to drizzle on top of theirs. - 1/25/12

    I have not made the recipe, sounds good. Wanted to say that HCG is human chorionic gonadotropin which is a hormone released by a woman in pregnancy. HCG diet is controversial but claims to promote weight loss. Has been discussed on Dr. Oz. p2 mentioned in a comment or two is the phase 2 of this diet - 4/29/15

    Looking forward to trying, however beef should be cooked thoroughly as well, not just the chicken. Undercooked beef is just as dangerous to eat as undercooked chicken. - 2/8/18
