Southwestern Chicken & Quinoa Wrap!!!

My family loves the southwestern Chicken burrito!  I was on a mission to try and make a healthier version, so here you have it!  The Chicken and Quinoa Wrap!!

Things You Need:

  • Roasted Chicken ( I used a rotisserie chicken I purchased from our super market deli)
  • Quinoa
  • Can of black beans
  • Can of corn
  • Cheese
  • Lettuce (I used romaine)

  • Cumin
  • Garlic salt
  • paprika
  • black pepper
  • red chili pepper


  • cook quinoa according to package directions.
  • add cumin, Garlic salt, paprika, black pepper, and a pinch of red chili pepper to your quinoa while cooking.
  • shred roasted chicken
  • add drained black beans, corn, and chicken to a saucepan and simmer until warm.
  • break off a piece if lettuce, add your chicken mixture, quinoa, and shredded cheese on top, then roll into a wrap!
....and that's a rap!  (pun intended)

  6. I love eating wraps and tacos using the lettuce as a shell or wrap. Not only do you cut down on the calories, but you get a sturdy, crunchy item too. And, you just reminded me that I need to buy some cumin.
