Culinary Getaway in Mexico: Filled Wraps from the Pan

Holà, Mexico! Mexican cuisine is trending. Colourful, spicy and vivacious, it delights fans, among other things, with its great variety of dishes such as tacos, tortillas and guacamole. And the best thing is: you can easily prepare burritos and wraps at home with the °SensoRed® crêpe pan.

The colour change in the °SensoRed® crêpe pan's nonstick coating helps chefs identify the ideal time for pouring in the batter. This means that even the first crêpe will be perfect, and you can also easily prepare other Tex-Mex favourites such as burritos and wraps. Our recipe for wraps with a juicy filling will bring the heat of Mexico to your plate. It is perfect combined with a fruity-sweet salsa with tomatoes and peppers, which also pairs very well with nachos.
