Wrap n’ Bake Samosas: I had a lot of fun coming up with this recipe. I actually never made samosas EVER, but have always been a big fan when it comes to eating them ? . Did all my research & taste testing & decided to use a store bought tortilla to speed up the whole samosa making process- but in no way sacrificing the taste. These babies are so delicious & so easy to make. My family & friends ate them up pretty quickly.?Inspired to use a tortilla as a shell by my amazing foodie friend Bianca @biancazapatka
