To complete the chipotle harvest hummus wrap:
In a small mixing bowl, combine the avocado with 3/4 of the lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
On a work surface, spread a large spoonful of hummus over half of a tortilla. Spread a spoonful of the avocado mixture over the other half. Place a handful of carrot sticks in the center, top with a sprinkle of radish slices and 1/4 cup of arugula leaves.
Fold in the top and bottom sides of the tortilla. Fold in one of the sides length-wise and roll the tortilla, making sure the top and bottom stay tucked. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
Serve the extra chipotle hummus on the side with baked pita chips or extra veggie sticks and enjoy.
