This wrap recipe really packs a punch. The ingredients are simple, but the chili powder gives the wrap a lot of heat. Slice up two small chicken breast fillets, these will act as your protein for the dish. While you are sauteing your chicken, add some salt, pepper and as much chili powder as your heart desires. Toast your wheat or flour tortillas for a little extra crunch, then spread some mashed avocado on them for the base of your filling. Add the slices of chicken, Randall Dark Red Kidney Beans and shredded lettuce onto the avocado spread and roll up your wrap and slice it in half. Enjoy it now or use plastic wrap to preserve it for lunch later in the day.
Burritos are a great alternative to your basic soft taco. They are filling, packed with flavor and are freezer friendly. These spicy chicken burritos are great if you are planning most of your meals ahead of time. Don’t we all want to be more prepared when it comes to meal preparation? It will certainly save you more time in the morning before work. You can adjust this recipe to be as spicy or as mild as you like. Garlic powder, cumin and salsa verde liven up the chicken and garbanzo beans. You can use habanero cheddar cheese if you’re feeling adventurous, or stick to American cheese if you’d like. Make a big batch of burritos and store the rest in the freezer for later in the week. Use more salsa verde for dipping sauce, or try them with sour cream.
So this recipe is a little different than your average wrap. The Mexican fresh roll uses rice paper sheets instead of your standard tortilla. The rice paper provides a much lighter and crisper texture than a thicker flour tortilla. Anyway, enough about the rice paper. The filling inside of the roll is what really makes this dish delicious. The filling consists of Randall Pinto Beans, grilled sweet corn, a big green bell pepper and creamy avocado. But wait, there’s more. Add a small squeeze of lime juice, a dash of paprika and some parsley for even more flavor. Who says wraps can’t be fun? These Mexican fresh rolls are a much healthier lunchtime meal than that reheated piece of pizza you brought from home.
