stuffed. [jalapeno chicken wraps]

September 14th, 2012 by | comments

I haven’t had much time to cook this week; however, I did get a chance to whip up these simple jalapeno chicken wraps last Sunday. A group of friends and I decided to picnic before the Passion Pit and Hot Chip concert at the Hollywood Bowl, so everyone was in charge of bringing food or wine. We had an absolute blast and stuffed ourselves with mass amounts of food, from these wraps to my orzo salad to fresh fruit to The Alcove‘s lemon bars and peanut butter cookies. Happy weekend, everyone!

Hey, they liked them!


8 oz. roasted chicken breast

8 tbsp. jalapeño peppers, raw and chopped

4 tsp. jalapeno peppers, raw, liquid from jar

16 tsp. light mayonnaise

4 tsp. fresh lime juice

4 tbsp. fresh cilantro, finely chopped

12 small flour tortillas

1 1/2 cups Mexican style shredded cheese

Lettuce, chopped

3 tomatoes, finely diced


Combine the chicken, pickled jalapeño pepper and liquid, mayonnaise, lime juice and cilantro in a medium bowl.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place 2 of the tortillas in the skillet and toast until light golden, about 1 minute on each side. Remove the tortillas and set aside. Repeat with the remaining 2 tortillas.

Top each of the tortillas evenly with chicken mixture, spreading almost to the edge. Sprinkle each with cheese, lettuce and tomato. Return tortillas to skillet to melt cheese, if desired. Cut each tortilla in half, diagonally.
