I developed dishes that I call Encore Meals where I use the cook once, eat twice strategy. This is one of those meals. Basically, use leftover chicken for this recipe. It’s a great way to lessen your work, but still provide a healthy meal for your family. In fact, I always make extra chicken. There are so many ways to incorporate it into a completely new meal. Never make chicken without making extra!

My Southwestern Salad uses leftover chicken and has very similar flavors as this wrap. Also, Chicken Fajita Pasta SaladChicken Pot Pie Quesadilla, and Mojito Grilled Chicken Tacos all use leftover chicken.

For the chicken, you may use leftover boiled, broiled, baked, or grilled chicken. A rotisserie chicken from the deli works fabulously as well. I have also used leftover smoked turkey or sliced deli chicken and turkey. It is a very adaptable recipe.

Additionally, you may want to add avocado, sliced green onion, or cheddar cheese to your Southwest Chicken Wraps.

For the sauce, I simply mix taco seasoning mix with mayonnaise. It makes a really tasty punch to the wraps. You could also use ranch dressing.

Furthermore, two tablespoons of drained, canned Rotel tomatoes may be substituted for fresh tomatoes.
