Recipe: Mexican-Style Grilled Chicken Wraps

One of my favourite easy dinner recipes. They’re creamy and flavoursome while still being reasonably healthy. And they’re perfect for lunch the next day too!


- 1 cup cooked rice

- 1 cup shredded roast chicken

- 1 can black eye beans, rinsed and drained

- 2 green onions, finely sliced

- 1/2 red bell pepper, diced

- Handful of fresh coriander, chopped (optional)

- Juice of 1 lime

- 1/2 tablespoon chili powder

- 1 teaspoon ground cumin

- 1/2 minced garlic (stuff out of the jar is fine)

- 2 cups grated cheddar or mozerella

- Jalapenos (optional)

- Sour cream

- Salsa

- 6 flour tortillas/burritos

- Oil, for grilling

Mix rice together with chili powder, cumin and garlic. Add remaining ingredients except for cheese, jalapenos, salsa 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. Dot the top with sour cream, salsa and jalapenos. Fold edges over so they overlap in the middle, leaving the ends open.

Fry wraps one at a time in a large pan, with oil, over medium heat (not too hot or they will burn). They’ll need about 2-3 minutes each side. Serve on their own or with a crispy fresh salad.
