My new favorite wrap recipes!

As promised to my 21 day challenge group, I am going to share with everyone my two new most favorite wrap recipes I stumbled upon! 

I don't take my lunches lightly, especially when I have to teach INSANITY class in the afternoon! I need something that's filling and delicious at the same time. And I can honestly say, these two recipes definitely passed the test!! And I must say, prepping these two are a PIECE OF CAKE!

Chicken Enchilada Wrap
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, chopped into bite-size pieces
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 garlic clove, minced (or garlic powder)
Pinch cayenne pepper
3 oz low fat cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup low fat, shredded sharp cheddar cheese 
1/4 cup Greek Yogurt
1 10 oz can of Rotel
6 8-inch flour tortillas
Avocado (optional)

1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken. Cook, stirring frequently, until the chicken is no longer pink. Stir in the chili powder, cumin, garlic, and cayenne and continue cooking for 1 more minute, or until the chicken is cooked thoroughly. Cool slightly.
2. Combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and Greek yogurt in a medium mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until the mixture is creamy. Fold in the cooked chicken & tomatoes. If desired, cover and chill for up to 3 days.
3. Spread the chicken mixture evenly over tortillas. Top with lettuce and, if desired, avocado and/or tomato slices. Roll up and serve.

Skinny California Roll Wrap

8 whole wheat tortilla wraps
8 oz imitation crab meat
1/2 cup tomato, diced
1/2 cup cucumber, diced
1 avocado, diced
2 cups brown rice, cooked
3 tsp sesame seeds
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

1. In a small bowl, mix cooked brown rice with sesame seeds.
2. Lay one tortilla on a flat surface and place a small amount of rice, 1 ounce of imitation crab meat, and top with a small amount of tomatoes, cucumber, and avocado.
3. Fold sides of tortilla and place index and thumb on sides and roll tortilla tightly.
4. Repeat with other tortillas and serve each tortilla with reduced-sodium soy sauce. 

Enjoy! <3
