The recipe didn't say what to do with the peanut butter/coconut/rice mixture, so I mixed it in with the vegetable/chicken mixture. I made the filling and sauce early in the day and assembled the wraps at dinnertime. I felt that 2/3 c. of peanut butter was a bit much in the filling. Half of that would have been better. This was a delicious recipe but could have used a couple of diced hot peppers in it. This was not a quick recipe, but it was a good one!
