2 low fat, low carb, high fiber Tortillas (I used La Tortilla Factory)
2 slices of fat free American cheese

** Feel free to add in optional chopped onions, pickles sauerkraut or relish for no extra Points!

Directions:
Grill up your hot dogs, broil them, boil them, nuke them, or cook them anyhow you’d like. I prefer grilling them, but any method is fine. Then, cut cheese slices and tortillas in half, so now you should have 4 tortilla pieces, and 4 cheese pieces. Place each cheese slice on top of each tortilla piece. Then, put in the hot dog and roll it up! Bake in oven for about 5 min at 325 degrees, until wrap starts to become golden brown. Makes 4 YUMMY servings.
