The wrap is a type of small filled pancake made from a Mexican patty called wheat or corn tortilla.

It can be customized endlessly and served as an appetizer or main course depending on its filling.

Here are the ingredients needed to make tuna wraps for 4 people:

4 corn or wheat tortillas
one can of tuna, plain
2 tablespoons mayonnaise or cream cheese
2 carrots
1 cucumber
dill or chives

To note: it is of course possible to adapt the filling of these tuna wraps according to the ingredients you have available. For example, you can top them with avocado slices, lettuce leaves, diced tomatoes and hard-boiled eggs.


To make these tuna wraps, we start by preparing tuna rillettes express.

2- Add one or two tablespoons of mayonnaise or Philadelphia-type cream cheese until you obtain a thick and homogeneous preparation.

3- Season this mixture with dill or chopped chives.

To note: according to your preferences, you can also add a little lemon juice, grated lemon zest or Espelette pepper
