Cheesy Southwestern Rotisserie Chicken Tortilla Wraps
and butterhead lettuce salad with citrus

Active: 25 minTotal: 25 min

Using leftover chicken from last night's meal, these chicken tortilla wraps come together in a flash. Roasting them in the oven warms the filling and gives the tortillas a slightly crisp texture. This is a variation of a recipe we first featured in 2015.

Prep

  1. Make vinaigrette - Whisk together mustard, mayonnaise and vinegar. Add olive oil, while whisking. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Bell peppers / Garlic - Prep as directed. Store separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Green onions - Chop green onions and combine white and green parts. (Can be done up to 2 days ahead)
  4. Chicken - Shred chicken leftover from Wednesday night’s meal.
  5. Beans - Drain and rinse beans.

Make

  1. Heat oven to 375F / 190C degrees.
  2. Heat a skillet or non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then peppers to heated oil. Saute until soft, ~ 3 minutes. Add garlic, cumin, coriander and some salt and pepper. Saute for 1 minute more.
  3. Add green onions, chicken, beans and salsa. Stir to combine.
  4. Divide filling and cheese between tortillas by placing ingredients at the bottom of the tortilla. To enclose, fold bottom of the tortilla over filling. Then fold the sides and roll up as tightly as possible. (Note: If the tortillas are not pliable, microwave them for 20 to 30 seconds to soften.)
  5. Place tortillas, seam-side down on a sheet pan and bake for 8 minutes.
  6. While tortillas are baking, tear lettuce and slice oranges. Toss with half the vinaigrette and continue adding vinaigrette until dressed to your liking. Top salad with sliced almonds.
  7. Serve tortilla wraps with some extra salsa. Enjoy salad on the side.

My 5 year old loved these as did the rest of us. I’ve made them many times.

Easy and pretty tasty. Not over the moon delicious, but a solid weekday meal choice. Made 4 servings for 2 people and ate leftovers for lunch this week. Good to serve with extra salsa and guacamole. Didn't care much for the salad as a side - dressing was a bit bitter and flavors just didn't really compliment the burrito

Easy, flexible, and a good use of left-overs. I didn't have beans but did have corn, so subbed that. Next time, I'd probably add kale or spinach to up the veggies. Agree that this could be spicier. My gluten-free tortillas broke when bent (despite nuking them for 20 seconds), so I turned this into baked quesadillas, which worked fine!

Might be I'm bad with tortillas, but this was a tasty mess.
