Healthy Chicken Burrito Wraps

4 from 1 vote

They're wholesome, filling, and taste just as good as their fast-food counterparts

The demand for quick-service Mexican food has increased in recent years. So, companies like Chipotle, Qdoba, and Taco Bell supply. Gathering inspiration from their offerings, we created these Healthy Chicken Burrito Wraps as an alternative. Whole wheat wraps, brown rice, and low fat cheese cut back on calories, and broccoli bulks up the nutrients. Avocado adds a healthy fat, while chicken breast rounds it out with lean protein. Best of all, you can make most of the ingredients yourself!

Next time you’re in the mood for a Mexican-inspired burrito, whip up a batch of our Healthy Chicken Burrito wraps instead. Not only will you cut back on calories, but you’ll also save yourself a trip. They’re wholesome, filling, and taste just as good as their fast-food counterparts!
