And the GIANTS are crowned champions of this year’s Super Bowl!
I watched the game at home with my family this year. To accompany this great win I prepared a special Mexican style dinner. I made amazing grilled chicken wraps and Mexican salads!
Grilled chicken wraps were always just grilled chicken slices in a piece of thin bread. THEN Jeff’s changed it all for me. I was in California one winter and a friend took me to JEFF’s in Pico, LA. I had the most amazing dish… a grilled chicken wrap. The chicken was perfect… not under-cooked or too dry, it had some fresh veggies and was perfectly coated in a delicious mayo/bbq sauce. Anyway, one bite in and I knew I had to try to make this on my own. I will admit that I was not able to replicate the exact flavor…. but that extra something I cannot recreate I contribute to the company I was with and the vacation atmosphere … but my recipe does come pretty close.
(P.S. If you ever make your way out to LA definitely check this place out… Jeff’s Gourmet Sausage)
In this post, I am going to share with you my favorite recipe for the grilled chicken wraps I made tonight! I am not going to give you exact amounts for each ingredient because it really depends on how many wraps you want to make, so that I will leave up to you.
Hope you enjoy it!!
- Large Wraps (I used Whole Wheat)
- Thin sliced chicken breast
- Spicy BBQ Sauce
- Low Fat Mayonnaise
- Spicy Mustard and Ketchup
- Chopped Romaine Lettuce
- Black beans
- Avocado- small dice
- Red Bell Pepper – strips about 2 inches
- Tomatoes- medium dice
- Cucumbers- medium dice
- Sweet Onion- Small dice
- Pickles- small dice
- Brush chicken breast slices with BBQ sauce, place in the refrigerator and let it marinate until you are ready to grill them.
- Wash, cut and place all veggies, corn, black beans and chopped lettuce in a large bowl.
- Cut the avocado into small pieces and put some lemon on it to avoid it turning a brown color. Then add it into the veggie bowl.
- Mix in some low fat mayo and mix well until veggies are evenly coated.
- Grill the chicken until the slices are cooked through and chicken is not pink anymore.
- Cut the chicken into thin slices and set aside.
- With tongs or large spoons place a good amount of the salad mixture in the middle of the large wrap and add chicken slices. Fold each end and then roll. I suggest you wrap it with aluminum foil and then slice into two halves.
- These wraps are best when served fresh. Serve with ketchup and mustard so each person can add those to taste. And for those of you who drink… I suggest having this with your favorite beer.
