2 Pkgs. Low Carb Wheat Wraps – 5g net carbs each wrap
Olive oil or vegetable oil  (about 2 cups for frying chips)
1 Pkg. (about a pound) Ground turkey or beef
1 Green Bell Pepper (diced)
1 Red Bell Pepper (diced)
3 good-sized fresh jalapenos (sliced)
1 1/2 Tbsp. Cumin
1 tbsp Oregano
1 tsp Cajun spice
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
Salt to taste
1 – 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese cut into strips
1 jar salsa
1 – 8 oz container sour cream
Sliced black olives (optional)
Cut the wraps in half then half again then half again to get tortilla chip like triangles.  Fry in oil until brown and crispy.  I also sometimes put them in the oven for 15-20 mins. on warm after I fry them in the oil to make sure they get crisp.  Don’t leave them in either for too long they will burn easy.
Next, fry the meat in a skillet until brown (if you use beef drain some of the fat but leave enough for moisture).  Add the red bell pepper, green bell pepper and jalapenos.  Cook until all are tender, about 20 mins.  Add the spices and stir well, let it cook another few minutes.  Cut the cream cheese with a butter knife into strips and distribute across the top of the meat mixture evenly.  If you have an oven safe pan you can do it all in the same pan, if not transfer the meat mixture to a baking dish first, then put the cream cheese on top.  Put this in a pre-heated 325 degree oven until the cream cheese softens and then mix it all together.  Remove it from the heat to cool a bit then top with salsa, sour cream and black olives if you like.
Serve with homemade chips.
This can also be rolled up in the low carb wrap and eaten as a burrito, yum!
