These are SO good. I wrap them up like burritos. We call them chicken/rice burritos....wraps sound too healthy for the DH. I have made large batches twice now and they are all gone. I use whole grain tortillas and brown rice to make it a bit on the healthier side. I add hot sauce to mine when I eat them because I need more of a kick....but they are perfect for DH as is.
I tried this the other day but have yet to try it out of the freezer. It was a very simple recipe and I like the rice filling for spanish rice much more than one I found on this site. It make a spicy rice (the other one was missing a little bit of kick) and will do double duty when making these wraps and then a tasty side dish. Can't wait to try the ones I made and have up in the freezer.
Fantastic! Easy quick meal for a busy family. My kids (6,4,1) LOVE them.
Delish!! Can't wait for the man of the house to try one for lunch. I added a can of drained black beans and drained corn to make them a little healthier. Thanks for the wonderful idea!!
Great! Made these ahead and popped them in my freezer for quick and easy lunches. They were a hit!
If I could give this 4.5 stars I would! I threw everything into the pot at the same time, like one of the other reviews did. And since we use regular rice (vs. instant), I added 1.5 cups of uncooked rice into the pot to simmer along with the chicken. I used PACE salsa and topped with cheddar cheese and shredded lettuce (no lettuce when wrapping to freeze though). The only thing I would do different next time would be to cube the chicken vs. shredding it, I think you would be able to taste it a bit more/better. Served this inside homemade tortillas, can't wait to freeze them and see how they heat up! **update:wrapped these individually in foil for the freezer and they were perfect! Just microwave them for about 2.5 minutes, yummy!
These are fabulous. I had two different sizes of tortillas/sandwich wraps leftover so I made some of each and it made about 20 wraps, I froze all of them. Reheating takes about 2 minutes on high, I wrap them in a damp paper towel to keep the tortilla soft. I added a dollop of spicy fat free refried beans to each as well. Instead of cooking and shredding the chicken before adding it to the salsa/seasoning mixture, I cooked the chicken in the salsa water and then shredded just before adding the rice to save a step- worked out great and the chicken was very flavorful. Thanks for sharing another great timesaver!
Girl u save my life rushing for lectures, playing the PS3 and wanting a bite of good food! this rocks my left big toe so much!!!! PPl if a student , ahem 'like me' can do it and have meals like this for a month you lot should breeze through it!!!! Thank you!
Wow! These wraps are so easy, and so good. DH says they're the best he's ever had, and that's a huge compliment coming from a picky eater. I used 8 inch tortillas because they were on sale, and about 3 cups of prepared white rice because I didn't have instant. I will definitely be making this again!
