Low Carb Wraps | www.sweetteasweetie.com

I typically like to stick to eating whole foods or items that I make myself rather than processed foods but sometimes I need a quick healthy lunch and just can’t handle eating another salad. I discovered Mission Low Carb tortillas at the grocery store and had to give them a try. (No, they are not paying me to say this!) They have only 6g of carbs per tortilla & are full of fiber.

When I am looking for a quick and easy lunch, I am all about food prep. I like to make a little bit extra at dinner time so that I can re-purpose the leftovers the next day. For these wraps I used my “made ahead” Spanish chicken left over from dinner and black beans  that I use for my Taco Salad, but you can really use anything. My criteria for a good wrap is Spinach or Low Carb Wrap + sauce (or avocado or guac) + protein (this can be leftover casserole chicken or quinoa, whatever you have) + veggie (I use romaine lettuce or mixed greens). You can rework this wrap depending on what you have in the kitchen!

Make Ahead Chicken:

  1. Place chicken breasts in an oven safe pan.
  2. Pour creamed corn and tomatoes over top of the chicken.
  3. Salt and pepper generously.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes at 450 degrees.

To Assemble Wraps:

  1. Chop chicken into bite size pieces.
  2. Heat up a flat fry pan to medium heat.
  3. Warm a tortilla on fry pan until golden. Remove from heat.
  4. Spread the corn & tomato sauce from the chicken on the tortilla.
  5. Top tortilla with chicken.
  6. Top with black beans. (I use canned, heat, drain, rinse and serve. Frozen works as well or dried, but dried isn’t quick and easy!)
  7. Top with chopped lettuce.
  8. Add a squeeze of citrus. I normally like lime with chicken, but these oranges were so gorgeous!
  9. Depending on how crispy you made your tortilla, you can then eat it flat like a tostada or roll it like a regular wrap.
  10. Enjoy!
