    Cathy17's Note:

    I made up this recipe in my diet days when I tried to eat healthy. It is quick, tasty and low fat. You can either serve on top of rice or wrap in a soft tortilla for a great low fat and filling meal.

      Delish! Just finished having this meal with my husband and it will definitely stay in the "rotation"! I changed up a little as my husband isnt a big rice fan and i didnt have any tortillas on hand. So, added some quinoa to the chicken and veggie mixture and spooned it into roasted acorn squash halves. So many different variations of this meal came to mind for the future. Fantastic and healthy- thank you!

      EXCELLENT! I felt like I was eating at a restaurant. I don't think I could give this more stars... My husband was stand off ish when I told him what I was making (he hates zucchini and salsa)... Then it was love at first bite, he ate 3 wraps!! I made it exactly as said (except I added some bean sprouts) and I have to say the bean sprouts were what "made it"... I basically never want to eat another wrap again unless it is filled with this. My preschool aged kids even ate this with some taco chips, and I'm already being asked to make it again this weekend!
