Chili-Lime Southwest Wraps

Chili-Lime Southwest Wraps {turned healthy}!

The lovely Paula Dean has a WONDERFUL Recipe for Southwest Wraps.

Here is {Paulas} Recipe: 1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt •1TBS Lime Juice •1 TSP Chili Powder •3 Cups Shredded Cooked Chicken {see recipe} • 1 Can Diced Tomatoes & Green Chiles {Drained} • 1 Can Whole-Kernel Corn, {Rinsed & Drained} • 1/2 Cup Chopped Cilantro • Whole Wheat Tortillas

For the Shredded Chicken you will need 1 pack of Fresh Chicken Tenderloin Strips and a pack of Taco Seasoning. To make the shredded chicken is super simple! Just boil the chicken tenders until they are thoroughly cooked. let cool...After they are cool enough to touch, shred the chicken with a fork and knife. Place the shredded chicken in a pan on medium heat. Pour a 1/4 cup water over the chicken and the taco seasoning packet. you can use half the packet....but I like using the entire thing. I also buy the hot one;) I love spicy food!! mix well and thats it!

DIRECTIONS: In a large bowl, combine the greek yogurt, lime juice, and chili powder. Stir in the Chicken, tomatoes, beans, corn, and cilantro. Now fill the tortillas with the chicken mixture {about a spoonful} rollup the tortilla, and cut in half. You can secure the tortilla rolls with a tooth pick!

OH btw, there are a few things I altered from the PD recipe. She uses Mayo instead of Yogurt. She also uses flour tortillas rather than whole wheat!

These will be a GREAT recipe for any football party or tailgating you are having:) FUN TIMES! I know Frances & her man are having somewhat of a football get together this weekend....this would be a fantastic and impressive little dish Francelina!

Well I'm off to get dressed for work.
Happy Wednesday everyone. AND please share any football tailgating recipes yous have:)

Bye now
