I usually keep low carb tortillas in the fridge along with honey mustard. Of course, lettuce, tomato and cheese are a must have at all times. The one ingredient you may have to get is roast beef, but you can really use any type of lunch meat for these. Check out my low carb turkey roll ups for another version of this recipe.
- Low Carb Flour Tortillas- these are easy to find in most grocery stores. I used the taco size.
- Sliced deli roast beef- I have also used corned beef with great results. If you prefer, use sliced leftover beef roast.
- Sliced cheese- the photo shows colby cheese- use your favorite.
- Lettuce and tomato- slice the tomato thinly to make rolling up the sandwich easier.
- Honey Mustard - Choose a lower carb version if desired.
Place a tortilla on your work space, then spread with honey mustard.
Next, add a layer of cheese then lettuce and tomato. Sprinkle on any extra seasoning you would like such as pepper, everything bagel, seasoned salt, etc.
Next roll up the tortilla and secure with toothpicks.
Slice the wrap in half and enjoy! Try dipping your wrap in low carb dressing, mustard or sauce for even more flavor.

💭 Top tip
Be sure to read your labels to make sure all the ingredients are low carb and diabetes friendly. Choose the taco size tortilla as extra large tortillas will make carb counts go up.
Toothpicks are very handy to have when you make this recipe! If you are out of them, secure your wraps in wax paper or foil so the wraps will stay together.
