Ingredients

Chicken and black bean filling

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large chicken fillet cut into cubes
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (or ½ tsp dried thyme)
  • 1 small red onion diced
  • ½ red pepper diced
  • 6 cherry tomatoes halved
  • 3 tablespoons black beans either canned or pre-cooked
  • 1 small handful fresh spinach leaves chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Mexican chicken wrap

  • 4 soft white tortillas warmed in the oven
  • 2 tablespoons soft white cheese (or cream cheese)
  • 1 ripe avocado mashed
  • 1 lime quartered to squeeze juice
  • 50 grams cheddar cheese, grated (optional)

Instructions

Chicken and black bean filling

  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan on a medium heat.
  • Add in the chicken chunks and the thyme leaves. Cook on a low heat until browned on all sides.
  • Add in the diced red onion and red pepper. Cook for a few more minutes.
  • Add in the black beans and halved tomatoes, and cook until the cherry tomatoes are soft.
  • Finally add in the chopped spinach leaves and stir.
  • When everything is soft and cooked through, turn off the heat and set your filling aside.

Mexican wrap

  • Warm your soft tortilla wraps and lay them out on a flat surface next to your white cheese and crushed avocado.
  • Spread ½ tablespoon white or cream cheese over each one, followed by ¼ avocado which has been mashed, and with a squeeze of lime juice.
  • Spoon the cooked chicken and black bean filling on top. If you choose to then add a sprinkle of grated cheddar cheese also.
  • Fold the tortilla. We have used the ‘envelope’ method but you can roll or fold them however you prefer.
  • Start by folding bottom of the tortilla up over itself. Then fold in the sides. Finally fold over the top to make a secure envelope.
