Ingredients

3/4 cup low-fat sesame-ginger dressing
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
1 pound shredded barbecued pork without sauce
3/4 cup dry roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
8 (10-inch) burrito-size flour tortillas
1 head napa cabbage, shredded (about 8 cups)
1 (11-oz.) can mandarin oranges, drained
3 green onions, sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

Preparation

1. Whisk together sesame-ginger dressing and next 2 ingredients until smooth.

2. Drizzle half of dressing mixture over pork, tossing to combine. Stir in peanuts.

3. Place tortillas between damp paper towels. Microwave at HIGH 45 seconds; keep warm.

4. Place cabbage and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl; drizzle with remaining half of dressing mixture, tossing to coat.

5. Spoon about 1/2 cup pork mixture and 1/2 cup cabbage mixture just below center of each tortilla. Fold bottom third of tortillas up and over filling, just until covered. Fold left and right sides of tortillas over, and roll up.
