When you don’t know what to eat, you can never go wrong with a solid chicken wrap. It’s healthy, easy to make, and customizable. Whether you fill it with loads of fresh veggies or more hearty protein options, the variations are endless!

For this recipe, I’m creating a Cali-Mexican inspired chicken and black bean wrap filled with fresh ingredients and my tasty green goddess hummus.

How To Make A Chicken and Black Bean Wrap

  1. Prep the Green Hummus. This homemade green hummus is made from a blend of chickpeas, fresh herbs, green onion, and garlic. For variety, you could use any of my hummus recipes listed below.
  2. Shred the chicken. Simply follow my quick how-to and you’ll have shredded chicken in no time. Set this aside.
  3. Shred some kale leaves and set aside.
  4. Wash the black beans and set aside.
  5. Slice the red onions and set aside.
  6. Make the tortilla. I’ve made my delicious cassava flour tortilla for this recipe, but feel free to use any tortilla of your choice.
  7. Wrap it together. Spread the hummus first on top of the tortilla, then layer on the kale, black beans, red onions, and chicken.

Chicken Wrap Tips

  • Don’t bulk it up. It’s easy to do, but depending on the size of your tortilla you may not be able to wrap it up it if you fill it too full.
  • Tie it with a string to keep the wrap together. This is great if you’re prepping these for lunch on the go.
