Crunchy Fiesta Chicken Wraps

Mexico, oh how I miss Mexico. It does not seem like we were there in Feb/Mar, but we were. Forever ago. I love that place, the sights, the sand, the seas, the people and of course, the food. We have done all inclusive in Mexico and we have gone to local restaurants out on the town. Please take my advice and DON’T do all inclusive. Enjoy the real food, the fresh food, the food that is cooked when it’s needed not cooked, shipped, stored, reheated, put out in the buffet and then with whats left it gets reheated….. And well,you get where I’m going with this, right.

Last time I was at the grocery store I picked up some wraps, thinking it had been far too long since we had something of this variety. That was a few days ago and those wraps sat untouched, on the counter, whispering to me.

As I had mentioned in a past post, similar to this one, wraps just make everything that extra bit more awesomesauce. As well there was rice in the fridge from the Butter Chicken recipe I made the other night. Seemed like a win win. Plus, a slow cooker is a dream. It does the the work and makes for super yummy-licious juicy shredded chicken!!!

Hubby likes foods that are juicy and yet still crunchy, I look forward to his reaction with this one. I intend to fulfill both. LOL

Guacamole Chicken Tostada Bites

Saturday night was The Ultimate Fighter Finale and we love to watch our UFC and MMA so I made up a heavy duty lasagna complete with a broccoli meat sauce and a layer of fresh spinach. I’ll be posting the recipe soon. So if you’re interested stay tuned. For later on into the evening I had a yummy little snack planned for GalPal, Hubby and I. We were drinking us some rum so a snack was needed near the end of the evening. The crock pot had been busy for the last few hours with the chicken included in this little appy. I put this together based on a few things I saw on Pinterest

GUACAMOLE CHICKEN TOASTADA BITES

CHICKEN:
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 cups of your favorite salsa, I prefer a chunky type
3 Tbsp. of your favorite taco seasoning
Put all ingredients in a crock pot, give a little mix, and cook on high for 4-5 hrs, or low for 7-8 hrs until, chicken is falling apart and easily shredded.

GUACAMOLE:
2 avocados
2 Tbsp. of your favorite Salsa
Juice of 2 limes
3 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
Peel and remove the pit from the avocados . Put all ingredients in a food processor and pulse till creamy.

Soft flour tortillas
Biscuit cutter
1 cup fat free sour cream
Fresh cilantro leaves
2 small Ziploc bags
Scissors

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 350F
Use the biscuit cutter to cut out small round from the tortilla’s and place on a baking sheet
Bake till just crispy, DO NOT BURN
Scoop guacamole into a Ziploc bag
Scoop sour cream into a Ziploc bag
Trim one corner of the Ziploc bags to make a small ‘decorating tip’
When the tortilla rounds are toasted place on a serving tray
Squeeze guacamole in a circle around the tortilla’s and fill it in
Top with a small heap of the shredded chicken
Squeeze a tiny dollop of sour cream on top of the chicken
Garnish with a cilantro leave
Enjoy

You can also have these as tacos!! But this is a cute idea for a party of for when friends come by for the UFC fights 😉

Juicy and delicious!  I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

Thanks for visiting!

Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted any recipies and I made this yummy little meal the other night and boy did it hit the right spot.  I’m not certain what it is about wraps that I love so much but anything in a wrap seems to be good.  Maybe it’s convenience?  I’m not sure.

I saved the recipe in MS Word and therefore I do not know where I got it from.  It is not a recipe that I came up with…

Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps

*Makes 6 wraps*

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup cooked rice, warm or at room temperature
1 cup cooked, shredded chicken
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 (I used a combination of monterey jack and sharp cheddar)
Sour cream (optional)

6 burrito-sized flour tortillas

DIRECTIONS:
Mix rice together with chili powder, cumin and garlic salt. Add remaining ingredients except for cheese and sour cream. Sprinkle cheese over tortillas, leaving 1/2-inch border around edges, then arrange chicken and rice mixture down the center of each tortilla. (Optional: on some of the wraps, I dotted the cheese with about 1-2 tablespoons of reduced fat sour cream before arranging chicken and rice mixture down the center – it made the wraps delightfully creamy.) Roll stuffed tortillas, leaving edges open. Spray the tortillas all over with cooking spray.

Heat a large non-stick skillet (or griddle) over medium heat for 1 minute. Arrange 2 wraps, seam-side down, in pan and cook until golden brown and crisp, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining wraps. Serve.
