These diabetic veggie wraps are easy to make. Make 5 or make a single 1 for your lunch. You can add your favorite salsa or make some fresh salsa of your own. I wrapped mine in the Carb Smart Tortilla. You can find those at your local grocer. This did change the nutritional contents of this recipe thus giving me less carbs!
1/2 cup diced zucchini
1/2 cup diced red or yellow bell pepper
1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded, chopped
3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend

2 nonfat flour tortillas - (8" dia)
