This wrap features chopped fajita beef combined with red pepper flakes, American cheese, fresh bell pepper and garlic.

Ingredients

3 tbsp. beef base
1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. garlic powder
2 qt. hot water
1 tbsp. red pepper flakes
1⁄2 cup corn starch
1⁄2 cup cold water
5 lb. chopped beef fajita
9 oz. shredded American cheese
11⁄2 cups chopped fresh bell pepper
24 10-in. whole-wheat tortillas

Steps

1. In bowl, mix beef base and garlic powder. Slowly add in hot water and stir until base has fully dissolved. Add red pepper flakes.

2. Transfer liquid to stockpot and bring to a boil. Mix 1/2 cup cold water with cornstarch, and pour into boiling mixture. Reduce heat to a simmer and stir until mixture thickens, about 2 minutes. Cool gravy. (It is best to make a day in advance.)

3. Mix together beef, gravy, cheese and bell peppers. Spread mixture on tortilla to form rectangle shape and proceed to roll tortilla.

4. Place rolled tortillas on sprayed bun pan and spray tops of tortillas with pan spray. Place another bun pan on top of wraps, and bake in convection oven at 325°F for 25 minutes. Wraps should have golden brown strip on both sides. Note: Do not cut wrapini or sauce will run out.

Restaurant design is all about catching a customer’s eye —and it’s sometimes particularly beneficial to be far-sighted.

Just eight days before Dec. 1, when operators would have to comply with the U.S. Department of Labor’s new overtime rules, a federal judge in Texas slapped an injunction on the regulation. The move indefinitely halted the rules that would have doubled the overtime threshold to $47,476, affecting nearly 4.2 million workers, according to the DOL. For some operators, the move was too little, too late. Now, they have to answer to employees who had been briefed on promised wage increases.

With a budget and timeline in place, and the support of the university behind them, the foodservice team at the University of Chicago Medical Center was ready to get rolling with the renovation of one of its patient services kitchens. The facility, which services the hospital’s Center for Care and Discovery and Comer Children’s Hospital, was tripling in size to serve two additional patient floors, to the tune of $9 million. But that didn’t mean immediately jumping in with steel and screws.
