Southwest Chicken Wraps

It seems like it has been a while since I posted a recipe. Our lives have been so hectic I have been sticking to the staple/easy recipes when it comes to dinner. I have a stack of recipes I'm itching to try, and this was at the top of my list-Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps!

Mix rice together with chili powder, cumin and garlic salt.Next, I chopped up the cilantro, red pepper, and green onion then added these to the rice mixture.

Once the chicken was cooked I cut it up and added it to the rice mixture.

Spread sour cream on the tortillas, then sprinkle with cheese. Next, add the chicken mixture down the middle of the tortilla and then roll up the tortillas. Spray with cooking spray and place in a hot non-stick pan or griddle. Heat 2-3 minutes on each side.

Once they come out of the pan, just cut them in half and serve. I accidentally bought the "Long" burrito tortillas so mine were kind of big!

The recipe calls for beans and I didn't want beans in mine so I was going to wait until the end to add them...but then I forgot! Fletch didn't seem to mind though. He said that this was the best meal he had had in 8 months. I wasn't sure what made him choose the 8 month time frame, I guess that means it's the best meal he has had in 2011? Either way, it was a hit! It will be going in the recipe box for sure!

1 cup cooked rice, warm or at room temperature

  1. I got the ingredients to make these this week! I can't wait to try them, especially after Uncle Fletch's rave review. Thanks for pinning them, because I pinned it, then Emily B. pinned it, and she made hers a few days ago and loved them too! I bought the beans, but I am thinking put them in at the end for the bean lovers in my fam, which is obviously not me. Longest comment ever, whoops.
