Gluten Free Chorizo, Sweet Potato and Swiss Chard Wrap

This really wasn’t intended to be one of those ‘healthy’ posts, but sometimes healthy really does taste good. It’s also good to switch it up a little. You know, try new things, branch out, just not reach for the same old yummy but getting kinda boring thing. Ya that.

Oh and there just might have been zero tortillas left in my pantry which forced me to look in my fridge and, you know, not be so boring. Love it when that happens AND when what comes out of it actually kind of rocks. Like these guys, these gluten free wraps with spicy chorizo and yummy sweet potatoes, yuuuummmm!

Gluten Free Chorizo, Sweet Potato and Swiss Chard Wrap

Here’s the truth: I like chorizo and sweet potatoes wrapped in Swiss chard leaves even better than I like them wrapped in a regular ol’ flour tortilla. Who would have ever thought?! I like the extra crunch they have and they seem to somehow not take up so much room so that the flavour of the chorizo and sweet potatoes really comes through.

I will admit that they are a little more difficult to eat than if you had wrapped them in a regular tortilla, but I think it is definitely worth it. The past few weeks I’ve been scheming up other combinations of yummy things to wrap in leaves … stay tuned!
