Chipotle Ranch Chicken Wraps

Chipotle ranch chicken wraps

For the past couple of weeks I’ve focused most of my cooking in breakfasts and lunches. We still eat dinner, but I’ve been slow in adjusting to night coming at 5 pm. I really don’t feel like cooking when it’s already dark outside. It didn’t seem to be a problem in previous years. Maybe I’m just getting old or maybe I just need to hibernate like a bear, hehe.

Last week I posted the recipe for whole-wheat pumpkin tortillas that I used for a breakfast. I used the same recipe to make these wraps. I just substituted pumpkin with spinach and cooked 2 chicken breasts in a chipotle ranch marinate. It was another easy and delicious lunch perfect for this hectic time of the year.

  1. Chipotle has been on my mind too. I have a pork tenderloin in the fridge that I am going to do a quick marinade in some honey, oj, chipotle, lime, and other spices. I really want to grill it too because dang weather is going to start turning nasty here soon…..

    Awesome job!!!!!!!

  2. I love quick and healthy lunches Ben and this sounds perfect to me!
