I’m a total sucker for wraps. I think it’s because they fall under the, “I don’t know what to make for dinner, so what can I throw in a tortilla?” category. I give my fridge the once over, pull out any fresh produce (in this case, avocado, mango and cilantro) and I whip together a super quick dinner.

    Hi Lauren! I made this tonight for my son and me and we both went back for seconds – it is DELICIOUS! The flavors are outstanding. I can’t wait for my daughter to come home and try it because I know she’s going to love it. This is a keeper – I already have it listed in my Recipes bookmark! 🙂

  2. Hey, thanks Lauren for sharing awesome foodstuff its really so yummy chili lime chicken it’s my favorite I love it.

  3. Hi Lauren, I made the Chili Lime Chicken Wraps tonight and the entire family loved them! I doubled the amount of chicken for my family but didn’t double the marinade and still had enough left to cover all the chicken. What a delicious marinade! I forgot to purchase a mango today for the mango & avocado salsa but I did have a large, juicy, dark plum as my substitute. What a delicious blend of flavors. I will most certainly make this again! Thank you!
