Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps



from melskitchencafe.com



*Note: This is one of the most adaptable recipes on here (reading through the comments will prove that - your variations sound amazing!). Feel free to up the cilantro, add in a different meat of your choice, eliminate the pepper, add green chilies - seriously, the options are endless.



*Makes 6 wraps



INGREDIENTS:



1 cup cooked rice, warm or at room temperature



1 cup cooked, shredded chicken (or other leftover meat, like shredded pork or beef)



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 use 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: I like to dollop little bits of sour cream over the cheese before arranging chicken and rice mixture down the center - it makes the wraps delightfully creamy.) Roll stuffed tortillas, leaving edges open and slightly flatten the wraps with the palm of your hand. Spray seam-side of the wrap lightly with cooking spray.



Heat a large non-stick skillet (or griddle) over medium heat for 1 minute. Arrange wraps, seam-side down, in pan or griddle and cook until golden brown and crisp, about 2-3 minutes per side. Cooking them seam-side down first helps seal the long edge so they don't fall apart. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining wraps. Serve warm.
