Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps

Easy and highly adaptable to your taste buds, give these Chicken Wraps a go. Feel free to up the cilantro, add in a different meat of your choice, eliminate the pepper, add green chilies, up the heat – seriously, the options are endless.

INGREDIENTS.

  • 1 cup cooked rice, warm or at room temperature
  • 1 cup cooked, shredded chicken (or other leftover meat, like shredded pork or beef)
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 green onion, finely sliced (white and green parts)
  • 1/2 red or green pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (try a combination of Monterey jack and sharp cheddar)
  • Sour cream (optional)
  • 6 burrito-sized flour tortillas

DIRECTIONS.

  1. Mix rice together with chili powder, cumin and garlic salt.
  2. Add remaining ingredients except for cheese and sour cream.
  3. Sprinkle cheese over tortillas, leaving 1/2-inch border around edges, then arrange chicken and rice mixture down the center of each tortilla. (Optional: You can dollop little bits of sour cream over the cheese before arranging chicken and rice mixture down the center – it makes the wraps delightfully creamy.)
  4. Roll stuffed tortillas, leaving edges open and slightly flatten the wraps with the palm of your hand.
  5. Spray seam-side of the wrap lightly with cooking spray.
  6. Heat a large non-stick skillet (or griddle) over medium heat for 1 minute.
  7. Arrange wraps, seam-side down, in pan or griddle and cook until golden brown and crisp, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  8. Cook them seam-side down first helps seal the long edge so they don’t fall apart.
  9. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining wraps. Serve warm.
