How to Make Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wraps Recipe
To make my chicken wraps, I start by spreading a little bit of my pineapple jalapeno cream cheese spread onto a spinach wrap, soft tortilla, or even on a large piece of bibb lettuce or a collard green leaf. Then, I layer on chicken, bacon, cucumbers, red onions, avocado, and fresh spinach. You’ll want to take care not to overfill your wrap (like I sometimes do) so that it closes easily.
Once you have your wrap assembled, you can wrap each tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. If you plan to serve immediately, I like to slice my chicken wraps in half to make them easier to serve and enjoy.
I also like to serve them with a little bit of pepper jelly on the side to amp up the sweet and spicy flavors even more! I love to use the pepper jelly recipe from my cookbook. It is so easy and makes enough to share or stock in the pantry for later use! Love, love, love! You can also spread the pepper jelly on the inside of the tortilla or even use a little hot honey drizzled on the inside of the wrap
Here’s my Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wraps recipe. Make ’em soon!
Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wraps Recipe
- 4 (8-inch) tortillas, spinach or flour tortillas, bibb lettuce or collard greens
- 1/2 cup pineapple jalapeno cream cheese spread
- 2 chicken breasts, cooked, cooled and sliced into 1/2-inch slices or rotisserie chicken
- 2 1/2 cups spinach
- 4 slices bacon, cooked and diced
- 1 medium cucumber, peeled and chopped
- 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 medium avocado, pitted and diced
- 1/2 cup pepper jelly, optional
- Spread each tortilla (or lettuce leaf) with 1 tablespoon of the pineapple jalapeno cream cheese spread, top with a layer of spinach leaves, and arrange about 1/2 cup of chicken on the spinach leaves. Top with about 1 slice of bacon for each tortilla, cucumber, red onion, and avocado.
- Fold the bottom of each tortilla up about 2 inches, and start rolling the burrito from the right side. When the burrito is half-rolled, fold the top and bottom of the tortilla down, enclosing the filling, and continue rolling to make a tight, compact cylinder.
- If serving immediately, slice in half and serve with optional pepper jelly. If making ahead, wrap each chicken wrap tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
