I've fallen for the wrap ..
First came the Black Bean & Veggie Burritos .. which were not only great .. but helped get me during finals week when I needed healthy grab & go lunches.
Then .. The Chef made Tuna Avocado Wraps for our swap in May .. which proved eating well on the doesn't have to be expensive or take a lot of time. He made .. around 10 in no more than an hour one evening .. start to finish .. one hour.
Inspired .. I went forth ..
My goal was something with meat and veggies .. lots of flavor .. ingredients that weren't exotic & would be able to spend time in the freezer .. all without a lot of trips to the grocery or hassles in the kitchen.
The recipe lends itself beautifully to whatever vegetables you love to roast. The chicken can be made separately .. using some for wraps & tucking the rest away in the freezer for the times when you need to pull out a protein source to add to your meal.
