Peanut Butter and Strawberry Quick Jam Burritos

The hot, slightly charred tortilla warms and melts the peanut butter, creating the ultimate in satisfying, oozing deliciousness. In place of a sugar-laden jelly, this wrap features a homemade quick jam of fresh strawberries and a touch of agave. You could sub sliced apples or bananas for the jam.



Ingredient Line: 
8 oz. fresh strawberries, hulled
Ingredient Line: 
3 Tbs. agave nectar
Ingredient Line: 
4 8-inch whole-wheat tortillas, warmed
Ingredient Line: 
8 Tbs. crunchy or creamy all-natural peanut butter


1. Combine strawberries and agave in heavy medium saucepan over medium heat, and cook 5 to 10 minutes, or until strawberries soften and juices thicken, stirring gently and often. Cool slightly.

2. Working with 1 tortilla at a time, warm tortillas directly over flames of gas burner until they are heated through and slightly charred but still pliable, moving them around on burner to ensure they cook evenly, about 20 seconds per side. Spoon 2 Tbs. peanut butter down center of each tortilla. Spoon strawberry jam over peanut butter. Roll up tortillas, leaving one end open.

Comments on this Recipe

Does anyone know if this works with any other kind of fruit as well as it does the strawberries? I can't eat them and this sounds delicious, I'd love to try it.

I made this as is and it's so great, like how come I never thought to do this before!? I became addicted! The jam is a little runny so I use about half the amount of agave. And if I'm in a big hurry I just use jam I have on hand! Great recipe.
