Mexican chicken wraps – tortilla wraps stuffed with cooked chicken seasoned with taco seasoning, chopped spinach, chopped tomatoes, green onions, red onions, bell pepper, and Cheddar cheese. Serve these chicken wraps with Ranch dressing or for a healthier dressing, mix Greek yogurt with the taco seasoning and chopped cilantro.
These Mexican chicken wraps are also great to pack for lunch. I do that sometimes and take them to work: wrap them tightly in plastic wrap the night before and refrigerate! You don’t even have to have all the ingredients: if you’re missing 1 or 2 ingredients, these chicken wraps will still turn out fine. You don’t have to have bell peppers (optional), tomatoes, or even green onions – even though, if you do have all ingredients on hand – use them all!
This recipe is great for using up that bland leftover chicken you might have in the refrigerator (heat it up in the microwave or on stove top and toss with a little bit of taco seasoning). Or, quickly cook raw chicken from scratch in olive oil and taco seasoning.
A very simple, handy recipe for when you’re hungry and want something delicious (and healthy!) fast. This recipe definitely becomes healthy if you use dressing option # 2 (Greek yogurt with taco seasoning). Dressing option # 1 is Ranch dressing, which is also very delicious with these Mexican chicken wraps.
I love all the flavors in this recipe: chicken cooked in taco seasoning, spinach (or lettuce), green onions, red bell pepper, and shredded cheddar cheese.
