There are days when I feel lazy to cook but a wife’s gotta do her duties. I’m not obliged to prepare dinner, but I love doing it for my husband. Like most every guy I know, he’s not a healthy eater so when I’m around, I make sure he eats something nourishing.

Here's how to make Tuna Pocket Wraps

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: none
Makes 12 pocket wraps


-   12 pcs whole wheat tortillas, 6 inches in diameter
-   1 small carrot, thinly sliced
-   1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded, and cut into strips
-   1.5 to 2 pcs ripe mango, seeded, and sliced
-   2 cans (6.5 oz) tuna chunks in water
-   1/3 cup Kewpie or regular mayonnaise
-   ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

1.  Drain well 2 cans of tuna chunks and place in a bowl. Add Kewpie, freshly ground pepper, crushed pepper flakes, and salt. Mix well.

2.  On a plate, place one whole wheat tortilla. Scoop less than 1 tbsp of tuna filling and place on the center of the tortilla. Add a slice of mango and a few strips of carrots and cucumber.

3.  Lightly fold the sides of the tortilla first, fold the top next, and then fold the bottom last until all the fillings are wrapped in a rectangular pocket.

1.  I used Century Tuna Chunks in Water in this recipe, but you can use a different brand as long as you drain the water completely.

2.  I thinly sliced the carrot using a peeler.

3.  You can add a tbsp of calmansi or lemon juice in the tuna mix for added zest.

4.  Lightly fold the whole wheat tortillas so they don’t tear.

5.  It can last up to two days if you put the tuna wraps inside the fridge.
