There are some days where I really don’t want to think about lunch or dinner.

Do you ever have those kinds of days?

I’d say it happens more often than I’d like to admit.


Mexican Chicken Wrap - Tortilla with melted cheese on top


Generally I get busy doing 10 other things that I completely forget about lunch or dinner until it’s time for it.

And that my friends, is why this Mexican Chicken Wrap is a new favorite of ours.

Now if you’ve been a fan of Num’s for a while, you know that I love Mexican dishes.

Generally they are my favorite and I tend to make them quite often.

My poor husband, doesn’t love Mexican food as much as I do and often says something under his breath when I mention we’re eating Mexican again…AGAIN.

However, believe it or not, he likes wraps, and really liked these.

I will admit, that I probably liked it more than he did, but there was no grumbling and he didn’t leave a crumb on his plate…so I’ll consider that a success!


Mexican Chicken Wrap - Onions on top of chicken and other ingredients


These came to be when I literally had chicken sitting in my fridge with no idea what to make with it.

The chicken needed to be used by that day and my mind was a total blank.

So I looked and saw tortillas and got to work.

I’m sure you could add a little taco seasoning to your chicken to give it a bit more of a kick or even a little hot sauce or some jalapenos.

I however liked this just the way it is.

I’m a huge fan of TASTING my food and not necessarily the HEAT of my food.

And so I tend to opt for green chilies vs jalapenos.

However, what this should tell you is that this Mexican Tortilla Wrap is pretty easy to manipulate to your tastes and a great way to use up some random ingredients sitting around.

So alas, I tossed together a few things I happened to have around the house (notice no tomatoes, of which you can add) and in the end came up with this tasty treat.

Making a few simple ingredients, when placed together, a pretty fantastic meal.

It’s a great meal for lunches, dinner, on-the-go or leftovers.

I will warn, that you shouldn’t skip the dip.

If you aren’t a fan of Mayo, use Greek Yogurt.

But either way, the dip is really where the Mexican flavors come into play, and it’s delicious!
