  • To assemble, spread about 1/4 cup of the edamame mixture on each tortilla. Top with salad greens, tomatoes and chopped bacon, placing these ingredients on one third of each tortilla. Roll up to enclose filling. Secure with a toothpick or wrap bottoms in foil to hold together. Cut in half to serve.

Tips

Tip: Chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
