 I can’t help but laugh as I type this post for these santa fe chicken salad wraps. Because, in reality these should really be called ‘most-tortuous-grocery-shopping-trip-ever-$150 Santa Fe Chicken Salad Wraps’.

For real, I had all three kids with me because my oldest was home sick from school and the preschooler was off for the day. I normally go shopping alone but I had to go to store to get the ingredients for these wraps. I kid you not, I spent $150 on that shopping trip!! I only had 7 things on my list. I can’t even tell you what I bought, but I am pretty sure it’s all my kids’ fault 🙂

I promise you that these wraps are not that expensive. Just don’t take your kids when you go shopping for the ingredients…..

 Mix up an easy sante fe chicken salad; chicken (use a rotisserie for best results), canned corn, black beans, red bell pepper, and a delicious creamy dressing. Mix it all together and either use right away or keep it in the fridge until you need it.

I prefer to make the chicken salad part ahead of time so that way it has time to get cold in the fridge. When it’s dinner I just prepare the avocado, lettuce, tomato, and then pull our the chicken salad in the fridge. Easy!

 Lay out your tortilla and layer your ingredients. We love these with shredded lettuce, diced tomato, and avocado slices. You could also add some shredded cheese and even some rice too —> I have added rice to these and it is really yummy! I use this cilantro lime rice recipe.

 I always laugh at my husband when we eat wraps or burritos because he kind of just folds and squishes it together and then eats it. It bugs me. Not sure why 🙂  Probably because I’m a perfectionist when it comes to food. I can’t handle it all squishy and uneven. It has to be a tight, neat, clean roll…… I know, I’m crazy!?!?

 I love wraps during the hot summer days because it means I don’t have to turn on my oven. Anything that helps keep the house cool is a win in my book. Technically if you choose to not use a rotisserie chicken then you do have to turn on something to cook the chicken. But, I highly suggest buying a rotisserie chicken (the best ones are at Sam’s Club or Costco) and making these wraps.

 These are so yummy, filling, but yet feel really light. I hope you enjoy them! Let me know if you try them!

Yields about 6 large burritos

Ingredients

    creamy dressing
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 3-4 green onions, diced
  • chopped cilantro, to taste
  • chicken salad
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, shredded or chunked
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 can corn (14.75 oz) any variety, I like using the fire-roasted corn
  • 1 can (15.5 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • shredded lettuce
  • cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • large (burrito size) flour tortillas

Instructions

  • Combine all creamy dressing ingredients in a bowl and mix together.
  • In large mixing bowl, combine the chicken, red bell pepper, corn, and black beans. Pour the creamy dressing over top and mix until everything is combined and creamy.
  • Use right away or allow to sit in fridge for 2-3 hours to get cold.
  • When ready, heat up the tortilla to make them soft (so they don't tear) and then lay your desired ingredients onto the tortilla and then roll up like a burrito and cut in half.

Notes

You don't have to refrigerate the chicken salad mixture but I think it tastes so much better when it's cold and the flavors have had time to come together.

      July 15, 2016 at 10:58 am Hi Kelly. Thank You :) I am not sure of the calorie count, but if it's something you are worried about then I would just replace the sour cream & mayo with plain yogurt and maybe use a low carb or whole grain tortilla. Greek yogurt is very bland so I would maybe up some of the spices to compensate for the lack of cream/flavor that the mayo and sour cream give. Hopefully that helps. Thanks so much for commenting and visiting.

    September 8, 2016 at 9:14 pm I made these tonight and I was skeptical that all of my children would like them. It is a rare meal that everyone is happy ?. But to my surprise even my picky 9 year old, who usually hates main dishes, was half way through his wrap and said he liked it. So this is a great, nutritious meal. It's also very versatile. I subbed with ingredients, I had on hand. Thanks!

    March 20, 2017 at 10:51 am What kind of dressing is in the wraps or is it just mayo/sour? Thank you!

      March 20, 2017 at 12:33 pm It is just the mixture of mayo, sour cream and spices. If you want extra saucey wraps then maybe double the sauce recipe and reserve some of the dressing to drizzle on the wraps or dip the wrap into it. The recipe as is, is plenty "moist" for the wrap. I hope that helps. Enjoy!

      April 13, 2017 at 4:32 pm Hey Krissy. I actually don't have a specific video. I just googled 'how to roll a wrap' and a youtube video came up :) A short answer is to put the filling on the tortilla (there is a picture in the post that shows this) Fold the tortilla over the filling, fold in both sides and then continue rolling and tucking until you get to the end and you have a burrito. I then cut it in half to serve these. I hope that helps a little bit....

    May 7, 2017 at 3:45 pm I just made them for a quick lunch and they were amazing! I didn't have any chicken on hand or enough mayo so I kept adding sour cream and the dressing still turned out delicious. They are so filling and super easy to make! Thanks for the awesome recipe!!

      May 7, 2017 at 8:10 pm Hey Lyndsey. These don't have to be served right away. I prefer to make the chicken salad mixture and then let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours before using. You can also just use it right away. Either way works :)

    May 11, 2017 at 7:00 pm This looks amazing! How many servings will this make? It seems like only 1 burrito but I'm imagining that there is enough chicken mixture to make several....?

      May 13, 2017 at 10:05 pm I would guess that it will make 4-5 good-sized burritos?? But, if you put less filling in each burrito you could probably get more like 6-7 from it.

    May 15, 2017 at 7:19 pm This looks like a great recipe but it was very hard to read because you have waaaay too many ads.They are very distracting and cover up a good portion of your blog. Not cool.

      May 16, 2017 at 9:46 am So sorry you feel this way. Unfortunately it costs quite a bit of money to keep this site up and running, providing & photographing and recipe testing all the FREE recipes for readers that I post to my site. I just went and looked at the post you are referring to on desktop and mobile and nothing is covered up by an ad. I work very closely with my ad agency to ensure that they do not spam or cover up text. Perhaps it was a bad pop-up with your choice of browser. Thanks for taking the time to visit the site and leave your feedback. Have a great day :)

    April 17, 2018 at 7:25 pm Hey! Can I make these the night before serving them for lunch? Could I wrap them up and hold them in parchment paper?

      April 21, 2018 at 1:43 pm Good question! I would probably just prepare it all separately and then make them the next day for lunch. When I make these, I leave the leftover creamy chicken filling in a bowl and then make one at a time as I need it. I hope that makes sense.... I am worried that if you prepare them and roll them up, the tortilla and salad would get soggy.

    May 31, 2018 at 10:31 am These look great, but would you recommend freezing extra burritos?
    • Reply

      June 1, 2018 at 8:44 pm No I don't. The ingredients would not freeze well at all. The filling can be put in the fridge for a few days, and the topping can just be added as you need another burrito. I don't think there is any reason to freeze them.
