Jerk Seasoned Chicken Wraps

This went over BIG with my family tonight! If you've got a grill, by all means cook the chicken on the grill. I buy my "Jamaican Jerk" seasoning blend in bulk at a local health food store. There are quite a few recipes online if you want to mix your own.

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon white vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard

  • 2 cups broccoli coleslaw mix (or your preferred coleslaw veggie mixture)

  • 1 medium tomato, chopped

  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Caribbean/Jamaican jerk seasoning

  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts

  • 4 flour tortillas


Directions

Combine the mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, and mustard in a small bowl. Toss with coleslaw mix, tomato, and jalapeño. Set aside.

Rub chicken with jerk seasoning.

If grilling, apply some oil to your grill rack with a brush or paper towel and grill, covered, over medium heat for 8-10 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 170°.

If broiling, apply oil to a baking sheet and broil, 4 inches from heat for 8-10 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 170°.

With either cooking method, let meat stand 5 minutes before slicing thinly.

Warm tortillas and place one-quarter of sliced chicken in the center of each tortilla. Top with one-quarter of coleslaw and roll up.

Peach Lassi

  • dash cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Turkey-Avocado-Cream Cheese Wraps

I was supposed to make Mongolian Beef tonight, but it's hot (still 95° at 7pm, with a heat index of 104.1°!) and I do not feel like being anywhere near the stove, especially not as hot as it gets cooking in a cast iron wok!!

So I ran to the store for the few ingredients I needed to make up the difference for these easy-peasy wraps. I like to serve them with tortilla chips and salsa on the side.

Please note that technically this should make four servings - 2 ounces of meat is a serving, after all. However, if you let your family build their own, they'll probably put in way more meat than that! ;)

Prep: 10 minutes (but plan ahead to soften your cream cheese on the countertop)
Cook: ZERO!!
Servings: 4

Ingredients
  1. 2 medium ripe avocados, seeds removed, flesh scraped out of the skins and mashed in a small bowl

  2. 1/4 to 1/2 of a red onion, chopped (make these pretty small pieces)

  3. 1 jalapeño pepper, stemmed, seeded and minced

  4. 2 garlic cloves, minced

  5. 2 tablespoons (or more, to taste) chopped cilantro

  6. 1 tablespoon lime juice

  7. dash of black pepper

  8. salt to taste

  9. 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened

  10. 1 ripe Roma tomato, chopped (small pieces again!)

  11. 4 large ("burrito size") tortillas

  12. 4 leaves from a head of green leaf lettuce

  13. 1/2 pound sandwich-sliced smoked turkey


Directions

Combine ingredients 1-7. (This is my basic guacamole recipe, with the tomatoes added in. You can use more jalapeño or a serrano if you like it hotter. Red bell peppers are also a nice addition.)

Add softened cream cheese and mix/mash together well. Stir in tomato.

Note: You could also just toss all of these ingredients together in a food processor.

Spread guacamole mixture on one side of each tortilla. Cover with a lettuce leaf and add turkey slices. Roll up tightly, slice in half, and serve immediately.
