          Hi @Brian! The reason for the high calorie values is because of a bug, you can however add the recipe from My Things to get the right values in your diary. We will hopefully find a solution for this as soon as possible, sorry for the inconvenience! Otherwise I hope you enjoyed the Spicy Chicken Wraps =)

          Happy New Year!

              Kind regards,
