Takeout Chinese might be as speedy as these wraps, but you'll be missing the great flavors: garlic, ginger, sweet, and sour all melding together with mouthwatering ground pork. Not only do they come together as quickly as any fast food, but they're calorie-conscious and carb-conscious, too. Healthy, fast, and delicious? Goodbye, takeout. Tip: Don't fill up each cup too much, or they'll fall apart and you'll just have a delicious mess.
