some like it HOT - buffalo chicken wraps

These wraps are FAN-TAST-IC! promise. They are a little on the spicy side, but that is canceled out for the most part by the awesome dressing that goes on it. I had never had whole wheat tortillas before but they are actually tastier than the regular white ones (corn are still my favorite, but i wouldn't do them with this meal). Only down side I had with the wheat ones is that they seem to be more fragile than regular ones. Andrew ended up having to eat his wrap with a fork, sorry bud! But he enjoyed them nonetheless.

Servings: 4
Prep time: 35 min

2 Tablespoons hot pepper sauce, Tabasco or Frank's RedHot
3 Tablespoons white vinegar, divided
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound chicken tenders (or chicken breasts, you are gonna chop it up anyhow)
2 Tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt
freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
4 8" whole-wheat tortillas
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 cup sliced celery
1 large tomato, diced
