I don't know about everyone else, but I love the crunch of chow mein noodles! So, when I saw this recipe, I knew that it was one that I wanted to try. It was easy to throw into the crockpot and not have to worry about and delicious enough for me to want to try it again. Also, you can custom make each wrap for the eater - this makes it even more appealing to me! Kids don't like this or that? Leave it out! Mom wants extra chow mein noodles in hers? Do it! Gotta love it!!
