Spread 2 tablespoons of peanut butter on the bottom half of each tortilla, leaving room on the edges. Spoon equal portions of the peach mixture over peanut butter, then top with lettuce. Fold the side and bottom edges of each tortilla toward the middle over the filling, then roll so the tortilla covers the filling.
* Warm tortillas are more pliable for wrapping:
