Chipotle Chicken & Quinoa Wraps

Delicious and Healthy Chipotle Chicken and Quinoa Wraps

So Summer (and swimwear) is coming, and we’ve have decided it’s time to shed some off some of those winter pounds. However, we just flat out refuse to sacrifice delicious flavor for the sake of a beach-ready body.

We just spent all winter feasting on filling gumbos and gooey grilled cheese sandwiches.. we’re not going back, dangit!

If you want to start eating healthier as well, then join us in making these amazing chicken quinoa wraps. Hopefully they’ll be one of your new favorite lunches!

We started out by picking up some low-calorie flavored tortillas from Whole Foods (my favorite being the sun-dried tomato & basil variety), and filling them with all the delicious things we had laying around our fridge – fresh chopped onion, lettuce, cucumber, tomato, and avocado. These veggies gave our wraps the crispy freshness that everyone loves, and adding in shredded chicken and quinoa gave us enough protein to keep us feeling full for hours.

These wraps are super flavorful and filling, leaving you energized and ready for the rest of your day. Spice it up with some taco seasoning and chipotle ranch, and you’ll have a delicious lunch to look forward to every day!

Happy nomming, and see you on the beach!
