Really tasty recipe, me & the boyfriend preferred it to the packet ones we normally buy but I didn't use sour ream for the top as not keen so just poured over remainder of the tomato sauce from the frying pan. I had one with some salad the other half ate 2 with some chips& felt completely stuffed :)

Hi Faith, Thanks for spotting that and sorry for the confusion! The extra bits must have been left out by accident. I have amended the recipe now and the calorie count includes everything. Rosie

Faith

I presume the wrap and the cheese isn't included in the calorie count. This is a bit misleading.
