2 whole wheat tortillas, warmed

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 onion, julienned

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1/2 russet potato, washed and cubed

2 ounces shiitake mushrooms, sliced

2 ounces button mushrooms, sliced

1/4 tomato, chopped

1/4 pound asparagus, thinly sliced

1 cup chopped kale

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves

1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil leaves

1 lime, squeezed

Sea salt and pepper

6 egg whites, lightly beaten

1 cup Barn Burner Chile de Arbol Salsa, recipe follows

Barn Burner Chile de Arbol Salsa:

20 chile de arbol, toasted

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 onion, chopped

4 tomatoes, chopped

1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano leaves

2 cups water

2 cloves garlic, chopped

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven 375 degrees F.
  2. Warm tortillas over your stove burner (a little scorching adds to the flavor and personality) set aside. Place in a tea towel or napkin to keep them warm.
  3. In a saute pan over medium high heat, saute the onion and garlic in the oil for 1 minute.
  4. Add the potato, mushrooms, and tomatoes, and cook 5 minutes. Add the asparagus and the kale and cook, tossing, for 2 minutes. Add the herbs and lime juice and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Add the egg whites and cook until the eggs are cooked through, approximately 3 minutes. Place 2 tablespoons of the egg mixture in lower part of each tortilla and roll them up.
  6. For lunch or as an appetizer, toast them in a dry saute pan over medium low heat until toasty, roll them on the other side and toast. Pop it on a plate and serve with salsa.
  7. For dinner, lightly spray oven-proof dish with vegetable spray and carefully place the wraps seam side down. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake on the center rack in the oven for 20 minutes or until the wraps are very hot.
  8. Serve with salsa.

Barn Burner Chile de Arbol Salsa:

  1. Rinse and seed chiles. Place in a saute pan over medium heat and toast in the oil until all are deep brown. Set aside. Place the onion, tomatoes and oregano in a saucepan with the water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer 1 minute or until the tomatoes are soft.
  2. Strain the cooked ingredients from the cooking liquid. Toss liquid and place the toasted chiles with a quarter of the cooked ingredients plus the garlic into a blender and puree until smooth, 10 to 12 seconds. Add cilantro and the remaining cooked ingredients and pulse until chunky. Season with salt, to taste, and set aside until ready to use. Serve hot or cold.
