Spicy Mexican Chicken Wraps

Spicy Chicken and Mexican Vegetables wraps which is perfect to serve during the cooler days as lunch or dinner (quick and easy too!)

Wraps are very popular worldwide and our family is no different. We LOVE just about anything wrapped in a Tortilla. These Spicy Mexican Chicken Wraps are my go-to dinner when I am running late or especially on a bit of a chilly night.

The Wraps are not as hearty and rich as a casserole, which of course would be the first choice on a real cold Winter's night, but they are perfect for the in-between-weather days.

You can make these Spicy Mexican Chicken Wraps as hot or not as you like, by adding more chilies or no chilies at all if you have little kids.

The Chicken Strips are more Cuban spiced than Mexican, but the two flavors are so close, it just works deliciously in this recipe.

I always serve a simple Salsa {and always avocado!} rather on the side than wrapped in the Tortilla with the filling. You can serve it either way.

Spicy Mexican Chicken Wraps

8 Wraps



1 t Paprika
1 t Cayenne Pepper
1 t Ground Cumin
1 t Dried Thyme
1 t Dried Oregano
500g Chicken Fillet, cut into strips
2 TB Olive Oil


500g Frozen Mexican Mixed Vegetables {mine contained : corn, green beans, red cabbage, green-                                                                     and red peppers and sliced onions}
1 TB Ground Cumin
2 t Paprika
3 t Fresh Garlic, crushed
1/2 - 1 Chili, sliced

8 Medium Tortillas


2 Tomatoes,chopped
1/2 Red Onion, finely chopped
2 TB Fresh Coriander, chopped
Avocado slices


1.) Combine all the Spices and Herbs for the Chicken in a small bowl - sprinkle over the Chicken strips and rub in well.
2.) Heat the Oil in a large pan or wok and stir-fry the Chicken until done - remove from pan or wok and keep aside.
3.) If needed add a little more Oil to the pan/wok - Add the Frozen Mexican Vegetables, together with the Cumin, Paprika, Garlic and Chili to the pan/wok - stir-fry until the Vegetables are tender but still a little crunchy {about 8 minutes}
4.) Combine the cooked Chicken with the Vegetables and season to taste {if necessary} - fill the Tortillas and roll up.
5.) Toss together the Tomatoes, Red Onion and Coriander in a small bowl.

Serve the Tomato Salsa and the Avocado slices on the side with the Wraps.
