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. Simply 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.

Wraps always make for a fun meal. I don't know if it's because you eat them with your hands or because they are easy on the cook (me!). Thank you for sharing, Linda. These wraps look great--I'll take mine extra spicy!
