This little creation is seriously the best of both worlds! A little TexMex and little Philly and a whole lot of yummy!! Had this idea in my head last week but I knew today would be perfect to create it, perfect it, and put it up on the blog just in time for the Super Bowl! So the Texas Philly Cheese Wrap was born! Why a wrap you say? Because here in Texas we wrap everything up in a tortilla!
I heated up my steak really quick in a hot skillet because it’s actually cold here in Texas again. But if you keep it warm you should be able to just put the steak and peppers right on top of the cheese and the cheese should melt up nicely!
Wrap it up! Now you can either eat it like a fajita or you can cut it in half, stick a tooth pick in it to hold it together, and you have a nice appetizer. If you want to go buffet style, just have everything hot and ready for your family/guest to make up their own. Or cut up several and place on a nice serving dish for a great finger food. Be sure to have plenty of spicy mayo because your guests will NOT be able to get enough of it!! This serve approx. 4 so make LOTS extra, it’s so worth it!!
