Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps

Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps

From: My Kitchen Cafe

1 cup cooked rice, warm or at room temperature
1 cup cooked and shredded chicken
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 green onion, finely sliced (both the white and the green parts)
1/2 red or green pepper, diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
juice of 1 lime
1/2 Tbs. chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
2 cups shredded cheese
sour cream
6 burrito sized flour tortillas

Mix rice together with chili powder, cumin and garlic salt. Add remaining ingredients except for the cheese and sour cream. Sprinkle cheese over the tortillas, leaving 1/2 inch border around the edges. Then arrange the chicken and rice mixture down the center of each tortilla. You can also add 1-2 Tbs. of sour cream down the middle of the tortillas before adding the chicken and rice mixture for added creaminess, if you want. (I wanted!) Roll stuffed tortillas, leaving edges open. (I didn't leave the edges open, that sounded like it would be disastrous as I tried to grill them.) Spray the tortillas all over with cooking spray.

Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat for 1 minute. Arrange 2 wraps, seam-side down, in pan and cook until golden brown and crisp, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining wraps. Serve topped with sour cream, salsa or whatever sounds delish.

I made these tonight for dinner, and they are delicious. Although, I didn't have any cilantro and used parsley instead. I'm sure it was a different flavor but they were still good. However, I would definitely recommend using cilantro, it's the best!
