Crunchy Chipotle Chicken Wraps

For tonight’s dinner I decided to try this recipe for crispy chipotle chicken wraps from Half Baked Harvest. Spicy chipotle chicken folded inside a tortilla with peppers, cheese and spicy ranch, then pan fried sounded amazing to me.

The original wraps called for rice, which I left out, because I didn’t feel like making it today. I added some chopped bell pepper to mine, and served with some doctored up sour cream and salsa on the side. You could really adapt this recipe to whatever you had around, as it is basically just a folded up quesadilla 🙂

This was super quick to make, and it was really yummy. You could just use store ranch if you wanted to save more time, although I love homemade ranch. These would be great with some guacamole on the side too!

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 jalapeno seeded
  • 2 limes juiced

Make the ranch:

Cook the chicken:

  • Heat olive oil over high. Add the chicken and the onion and saute until the chicken is browned. Add the spices and 3/4 cup of water. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until you have a thickened sauce and chicken is cooked.

Make the crispy chipotle chicken wraps:

  • Make one cut from the center of the tortilla to one edge. Spread the chicken on bottom left quarter of the circle, Spread the peppers and cilantro on the bottom right. Spread some ranch on the top right, and some cheese on the bottom right. Fold each quarter over the next quarter in the same order as above. If this all seems like too much work, just put all the filling on one half of the tortilla and fold in half like a quesadilla.
  • Heat a little oil in a clean skillet and cook each wrap 2-3 minutes per side until crispy. Serve with salsa, sour cream, guacamole, whatever you like.
