Chicken Tomatillo Wrap

June 13th, 2008

Mixing bowl

Rachel loves Real Simple Magazine and we have always found their recipes to, truly, be simple.  She picked a couple at random the other day and the wrap was one of them. The wrap is really fresh and seems quite healthy.  It has avacado, broccoli, pine nuts, tomatillo salsa, and tomatoes — all really healthy fresh ingredients.  We made the recipe from the magazine but halved it and ended up eating it for a few days of lunch and dinner in a row.  I sneaked a little sour cream in mine, but don’t tell Rachel!  Whip these up on a hot day to save from turning on the oven or stove.  Here’s what we did:

Chicken Tomatillo Wraps

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 of a rotisserie chicken, shredded (find it in your grocery store)
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 cup tomatillo salsa (or green salsa)
  • 3 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 1/2 head of broccoli, diced and steamed
  • tortillas (my favorite is whole-wheat or homemade — I’ll have to blog a tortilla recipe sometime!)
  • 2 avocados, 1 diced and the other for slicing and presenting on the plate
  • 1 lime, sliced in wedges

Directions:

  1. Combine the chicken, onion, salsa, tomatoes, brocolli, and pine nuts in a bowl
  2. Add some mixture to each tortilla and top with the diced avacado then roll up
  3. Serve wraps with a lime wedge and sliced avacado

Adding onions

I hope you enjoy them!

    Keith, Justin and I just tried this recipe last night and it was amazing! It was so delicious! Next, we’re going to try the parmesan zucchini. Thanks so much for creating this website.
