I had some leftover shredded chicken from my Baked Crisp Chicken Burritos the other night and I thought of a good way to use it for lunch yesterday… then I remembered making some enchilada wraps before. It is a little bit similar to the crisp burrito recipe but different in that it’s not baked but grilled, and it has avocados and slightly different seasonings in the filling.
These wraps are so good if you like the combination of cream cheese and chicken together.. I’m a big fan! I made two servings of these wraps but you can double or triple to make more.
I only added avocados but you can add lettuce, tomatoes or any other fresh ingredients that you like in wraps.
You will need about one cup shredded chicken for this recipe. Add chili powder, paprika, chili powder (or taco seasoning), garlic powder, and cumin to the chicken and stir and heat.
Combine cream cheese, sour cream. green salsa and cheese together and add the seasoned chicken and stir together. Slice avocados.
Add green onions and cilantro to the chicken and cream cheese mixture. Place the chicken mixture (you may only need half of the mixture – save the rest in the fridge until ready or make two burritos) in the center of a tortilla. Place sliced avocados and seal the tortilla and grill.
