Farrah's Smoky Chipotle Wraps are full of bold smoky and sweet notes, with just the right chipotle kick. They're perfect for summer BBQ burgers or slow cooked pulled pork and beef.
Every Wrap has softness you can feel, and smooth edges you can see. Fill, fold, wrap, stack or bake - there are plenty of delicious recipes to explore!
Farrah's is one of those brands that managed to sway me over to their side, the majority of the reason why being that they can take a lot and don't tear on you like other brands are apt to. Chipotle isn't a flavour I tend to lean towards, ever, but I won't say no to a freebie. Opening this up I could easily smell the smokey side to the flavouring and it wasn't a hit more me but I knew that I needed to give it a good taste test before I passed my final judgement on these wraps.
Hosting a birthday afternoon tea and having not done enough shopping I grabbed these wraps, spread butter and marmite on them, sprinkled with cheese, rolled them up and then threw it into the oven for a few minutes. Taste testing a few, the chipotle wasn't too strong, every now and then a short, tiny hit of heat but it never lasted and it wasn't noticed by the kids. What we did work out though, was that the overall flavour of the wrap did NOT suit marmite and cheese and it ended up getting fed to the chickens and wild birds who happily chowed down on it.
I ended up using it for a late night snack with some rice and veges but was overall unimpressed, the flavour just didn't do anything for me at all and I won't be buying this one again.
I've said it before I know but i'll say it again Farrah's really do have the best wraps out and since discovering them I can't bring myself to use a different brand of wraps. When they promise they wont crack or split when filled and rolled they are 100% telling the truth the wraps are robust yet still beautifully soft to eat. The only brand of wraps i've used where I have found that I do not need to heat the wrap to soften it up a bit before use. When you remove them from the packet they are beautifully soft and have all that beautifully freshly baked texture and scent.
I am a big fan of the smoky chipotle spices so when I saw this flavour variety I was excited to give it a try. I noticed on opening the packet you could pick up those smokey notes straight away, as with other Farrah's wraps varities you can taste the flavours they are subtle enough to not be too much but definitely add fragrant background flavours to the wrap itself. In this smoky chipotle wrap I could pick up the smoked flavour but there was a great level of sweet and spicy too. This is subtle enough that it doesnt distract from your chosen fillings but certainly adds a different touch of flavour.
We used these wraps for a traditional burrito as I think the chipotle is a perfect match for mexican style food. Even filling the wraps with saucy chicken, salad vegetables, beans and a saucy salsa the wrap holds itself and doesnt split spilling your fillings everywhere. I am yet to master the burrito wrapping skill I have to admit but being a good size these give you enough wrap to work with that you can get a good fold over even for a novice. With six wraps in the packet they are the perfect family sized packet as we all were able to have a wrap with one spare.
I buy wraps every week, mainly for my husband who makes his own ham, cheese and lettuce wrap for lunch on his work days. We have tried quite a few of the Farrah's wrap flavours with our favourites being Premium White, Caramelised Onion and Garlic Butter, so of course I was keen to try this new flavour of Smoky Chipotle.
The wraps come in a pack of six and are great diameter size compared to other wraps on the market, the packet was resealable and I noticed they are now listed as Halal certified, Vegan and Vegetarian, Dairy and Yeast Free and of course made in NZ! Fantastic achievements, well done.
I decided to just tear a piece off the wrap and taste it on it's own, the wrap was lovely and soft and the flavour was mild smoky with a tiny bit of chipolte kick. I decided that I would buy some pulled pork and coleslaw and our family had smoky chipolte pulled park wraps for our meal that evening, all the family really enjoyed these with my youngest commenting on the nice colour of the wrap as well.
I had one wrap left and decided to cut that one up into chips and brush with olive oil then toast under the grill in my oven until crispy, once the chips had cooled down we had them with a sour cream and chives drip that I had in my fridge. I really enjoyed the wrap made into chips and I decided that this would become a go to for a different yummy snack when guests come over, and with the beauty of the long due date it gives me an option in the pantry other than just crackers.
I would recommend these Farrah's Smoky Chipotle wraps to all who appreciate a good quality NZ made product by a company who is willing to think outside the box.
Wraps are a staple pantry item in our household. Their uses are endless and they are a universal favourite for lunch, dinner or a snack at any time of the day. Having used Farrah's wraps before on many occasions, I know that they are a company with a focus on quality and performance, so we were really stoked to eeceive these Smoky Chipotle wraps to review.
As usual with Farrah's wraps, the packaging is excellent. Colour coding means that you don't get mixed up between flavours (if, like me, you can't just buy one pack at a time), and there is a yummy recipe included on the back, as well as suggestions of how to use them. The packet is also resealable with a really good zip lock system, keeping them fresh if you don't use them all at once.
When we first opened the wraps I was quite surprised at how smoky they smelled. I am quite used to the flavours being subtle in wraps, but this one was reasonably strong. The wraps tasted almost like a mild BBQ sauce- and would definitely enhance any filling they were containing. As usual with Farrah's, the wraps are beautifully soft, and don't split or crack, even when rolled tightly.
I tried the wraps firstly with Mexican food- and the chipotle smoke worked brilliantly with the enchiladas spice. I also tried these to encase some barbecued chicken and veges with a ranch-style sauce- where the creamy ranch and bbq flavours worked in harmony. These also made a perfect snack smeared with marmite and cheese- both my hubby and my daughters were big fans.
Overall these were fantastic. Perfect for so many things and being universally popular with my family. If you like flavour with the classic Farrah's quality, then these wraps are for you. All I can say is yum!
I'm a huge fan of Farrah's wraps and use them for my lunch every day. I usually stick to a basic ham and cheese filling and enjoy having the flavour of Farrah's wrap 'spruce' things up. The packs are resealable which is great and I find that the wraps stay fresh for a long time. There was a subtle but lovely smokey chipotle scent when I opened these wraps and although I'm not a huge fan of chipotle flavoured sauces, I couldn't wait to try these wraps. The wraps tasted as yummy as they smelt and they really did change my daily wrap from ordinary to extraordinary.
Another advantage that Farrah's wraps have is that they don't crack which is a pet peeve of mine. There is nothing worse than having a wrap that starts to crumble and fall to bits whilst you're eating it. On the weekend I decided to make a quick lunch and spread a little pasta sauce on the wrap and then crumbled some feta onto it and stuck it into my air fryer for five minutes. I rolled it up and voila! A delicious, quick and easy lunch. These wraps are delicious and another fabulous addition to Farrah's wrap range. The biggest problem I'm going to have now is deciding which one to have for my lunch!
Ever since I can remember I have had a soft spot for eating wraps, they are so versatile and perfect for lunch or dinner. My parents used to make a taco mixture and that was our go-to filling on nights when we wanted a quick, but filling wrap for dinner. When I saw a new range of Farrah's wraps available to request from KIWIreviews I became excited, out of the 3 new flavours the Smoky Chipotle ones jumped out at me.
Upon opening the review box I was ecstatic to see a packet on top, the packaging is extremely eye-catching, the brown background really makes the colour of the wraps stand out. The serving suggestion picture shows delicious vegetables, meat, and a dressing on top of a wrap, this 'no rules' recipe is included on the reverse of the packet. These wraps are dairy and yeast-free, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The reverse side of the packet is very busy, but in a well laid out format, including the nutrition information, the story about Farrah's, the 'no rules' recipe, heating and storage information, and an idea of all the ways to use the product.
When I opened the packet there was a definite smoky barbecue aroma that wafted out which was sweet, my mouth was instantly salivating, and I was eager to taste. I had made a mix of chicken, tomatoes, grated carrot, grated cheese, and lettuce, I heated the wrap for 10 seconds and proceeded to construct. Just like Farrah's promised the wrap did not crack or tear while being rolled up, I took a large mouthful and the flavour was incredible, there was just the right combination of smoky flavours and it wasn't overpowering, the texture was smooth, and the wrap was a perfect thickness. These have definitely become my favourite flavoured wraps!
Both myself and my partner thoroughly enjoyed the Chipotle wraps and will be purchasing again. I would love if Farrah's would consider making a packet with more in, say 10 or 12, as 6 was just enough to feed our family - 2 adults and 3 young children. I think next time when I purchase this product, I will try to use them as pizza bases, I think the smoky flavour would add another element to a yummy meaty pizza. Keep going with the amazing creations Farrah's!
When my son first seen the Farrah's Smoky Chipotle Wraps he was said mine mine mine while grabbing them and giving the bag a cuddle. He loves wraps and he loves chipotle so the two together was a win win for him. He asked if we could have wraps that night so we did. I love how the bags are easy to open and also close up again with the seal so they can stay fresh if you do not have a whole bag in one sitting. On this time we used the bag up but if the boys are having them with school lunches and work lunches then the seal is great.
We had chicken wraps with all the trimmings like lettuce, tomato, cheese, grated carrot mayo and of course chipotle sauce. My son loved every bite and so did i. The wraps are not super strong in flavour but the hint of flavour is there. Nothing to spicy or over powering just faint enough to know its there. Makes a wrap more appealing as well and mixes it up a bit with the different flavors you can now get.
These are a win in our house and I have brought them again since reviewing them. I was also thinking of taking a couple bags with us when we go to Rarotonga as you can take food over and these are quick and easy on the go lunch snack or dinner. Plus wouldn't weigh much in the luggage as so light weight. Will be getting added the weekly shop in our house. I also love the see through bag so you can see the product. That is always a win for me.
Wraps are a godsend for people on the go. Breaky, lunch, dinner covers all your basis. You can add or leave off whatever ingredients you want and what is even better, kids can make their own with no issues. Throw all the ingredients on the table and have a free for all. Even better during the hot season take out for a picnic or a quick snack when hiking around the lake.
Even though its school holidays, the idea of having a lazy day where we all blob comes and goes as life continues and things always inadvertently pop up so when it comes time for dinner prep I find its still a mad rush. I had brought some sirloin steaks yesterday and had no idea what to do with them and then I remembered I had this item to review - perfect. Frying up some mushrooms and red onion I placed to one side then salted the sirlon steaks and cooked them and left to settle before cutting them up. Sliced some cheese, opened can of beetroot and in less than fifteen minutes later had the beginnings of a fantastic meal.
Opening the packet is a breeze and whats even better is they can be sealed back up if needed to be. The first thing I noted was the amazing chipotle aroma that wifted out. I placed four in the microwave and heated for a minute. Put out on the table with the garlic chutney and some lettuce and dinner was done. Everyone helped themselves and I sat down feeling rather proud of my award winner dinner. The hardest part was not snacking on the cheese while slicing it up.
I first ripped off some to try as I wanted to see what kind of flavour these had as I have been let down previously on lack of taste and I have to say these actually delivered. Not over powering but enough of a kick to actual taste something - which is a nice change then just having a blank canvas. I still added some pretty strong individual taste items and with the combination had chosen made an extremely enjoyable dinner, so much so that just having the one wrap tonight was enough. No one went back for any more which is shocking in itself so have two left over which will help with lunch tomorrow.
Everyone enjoyed the actual flavour of the wrap and it was decided we will be having these wraps with the steak again in the not too distant future. A winning flavour for us indeed.
On opening the pack, we were immediately taken by the little red flecks in each wrap and had to taste them to see if they were hot. Yes - a nice little kick there, but as with all Farrah's wraps, smoky chipotle is not too hot so even the younger family members can enjoy it. And overall the impression is similar to that of a mild sweet chilli flavour - enough to add a little spice to a meal, but not enough to mask the other flavours.
We folded two into fan shapes and added some build-your-own ingredients, always a useful way to make a quick meal! We had various salads, smoked tuna (which we thought would go well with the smoky flavour of the wraps), and sliced tamarillos. Perfect for lunch on the run and it meant we could add items to taste. They made a great alternative to bread, and as they don't fall apart there are no crumbs to worry about. I used a knife and fork because the fillings were quite runny, but my daughter was happy to just roll hers up and eat it with her fingers.
When the children came in from school, we sliced some wraps into strips and let them dip them into hummus. Because the strips were small, they could be rolled into a scoop shape and used as a conventional potato chip - but of course they were much healthier. Mr Nine was not told that they were chipotle flavour until he had eaten some, and then we shared the secret. His reaction was interesting. Normally, he would avoid spicy food, but he admitted that this time round it was ok! But he did add that he would not choose them if another variety happened to be available! He then proceeded to clear his plate, so I don't think I will be taking that remark too seriously. His sister was quite happy with hers, and said the red flecks were pretty!
I took the bag containing the last remaining wrap home with me, planning to have it next day with a poached egg - I often serve wraps instead of toast for meals like this, but the spicy chipotle was one of the best. I loved the contrast of the wrap flavour with that of the egg; this is a combination I will be trying again! Having finished the wrap, I put it aside to recycle - but that was not to be. Instead, I found a unique use for it.
I had arranged to visit Miss Seven's school next day to read a book to the children in her class. But when I was about to leave the house, I realised that there was a storm in progress. I hate umbrellas as a little rain never hurt anyone - humans have drip dry skin! - but I did not want the book to get damaged. It was then that I remembered the empty wrap packet, still with its ziplock closure intact. The book was a perfect fit! It travelled with me sealed inside its bag and arrived perfectly dry into the classroom. The children were amused when I showed them my new "book bag". Yet another use for a Farrah's product!
