    Lusog Notes
    This snack dish provides calcium which is important for the formation and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. It also has iron that is needed for normal metabolism.

    Make a pocket out of the lettuce by folding it over the filling before rolling the tortilla. This will keep the filling inside.
