2.Chop the Serrano chili 🌶 fine and mix in with the chopped ingredients.
3.Chop the cilantro leaves and add to the mix.

To assemble the wraps –

1.Warm each tortilla wrap in a skillet. Do not warm for too long or it will lose its flexibility.
2.Place on a plate one at a time and spread with sriracha sauce and tomato 🍅 sauce.

3.Apply a layer of mashed boiled and tempered chick peas over the wrap.
