Crunchy Southwest Chicken Wraps Recipe

 This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mission®. All opinions are entirely my own.

These easy to make, crunchy southwest chicken wraps are perfect for busy weeknight dinners and the whole family is sure to love them! They are full of flavor, cheesy and oh so good. I make them with Mission® Gluten Free Tortillas, so they are gluten free too!

My family has been eating more and more gluten free items lately. It started with my son eating a gluten free diet and slowly the whole family has been starting to eat gluten-free too. I’m so amazed at just how many gluten free choices there are now, like these amazing gluten free tortillas from Mission.

We use tortillas for lots of different recipes in our house. Several times a week I like to make breakfast burritos with scrambled eggs and either sausage or bacon. I also add fresh tomato, onion, cilantro, and spinach or kale. They are so delicious and a great way to start the day. We all love them!

We also use Mission Gluten Free Tortillas for wraps for school lunches with fresh vegetables and leftover meats. And after school I like to make quick bean and cheese quesadillas. The kids love them so much and so do I.

For dinner we use Mission Gluten Free Tortillas in crispy wraps like these, carne asada burritos and soft tacos too. They taste amazing and are perfectly soft and are so full of flavor. No one even notices that they are gluten free!

Mission Gluten Free Tortillas are certified gluten free and a no trans-fat, zero cholesterol food, so you can feel good about serving them to your family. And I love that we don’t have to sacrifice flavor that we want to eat gluten free.

These wraps are so easy to make and take just a few ingredients.

I start with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I season them with a homemade taco seasoning mix, but you can also use the pre-packaged seasoning mix.

After the chicken is coated in the seasoning mixture, I cook it in a skillet over medium heat.

Then, I remove the chicken from the pan, chop it up and sauté it with some diced onion and bell peppers.

And then add the beans and corn.

Lastly, I get one of those yummy Mission Gluten Free tortillas. Did I mention how soft they are?

Then I sprinkle on some shredded Mexican cheese and add the chicken mixture.

Then I roll it up and just make it golden brown and crispy in the skillet!

How easy was that! We make these crispy wraps every week. My kids really love them.

I serve them with a little guacamole and sour cream, and if I’m feeling it, some salsa too.

Mission Gluten Free Tortillas are available nationwide and can be found in the tortilla section or the gluten free section of your local grocery store.
