Crispy Southwestern Chicken Wraps

These have got to be my new favorite way to prepare wraps. I love crunchy textures so when I spotted these on Pinterest, I knew I had to make them. These were definitely a winner in my book! I think they'll be great to have during the warmer months when I don't want to heat up the kitchen too much and as a bonus, they're quick and easy to make.

You really can just add in your own favorite ingredients, that's what great about a recipe like this. Truly make it your own.

Crispy Southwestern Chicken Wraps

2 boneless chicken breasts, cooked and chopped into small pieces
1/2 red or green pepper, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 cup salsa
Shredded cheese, cheddar or monterey jack
Sour cream, if desired
Burrito size tortilla shells

In a medium bowl combine chopped chicken with chili powder, cumin and salsa. Add in chopped pepper, tomato and cilantro. Sprinkle cheese over tortilla shells leaving about a 1/2-inch border around edges. Arrange the chicken mixture down center of shell, topped with a little sour cream if desired. Roll stuffed tortillas just like you would a burrito. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Place wraps seam-side down in pan and cook for 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to plate and repeat with remaining wraps. Serve with additional salsa and sour cream. Makes about 6 large wraps.
