Easy Taco Wraps

Today I’m sharing an adaptable recipe for an easy meal of taco-style wraps. These can be made vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and allergen free depending on what you choose to add! I will provide recipes for fillings including, turmeric rice, black beans, chicken, and guacamole.

One of the things I love most about cooking is being flexible with recipes and changing things up each time I make a dish. Please as many or as few of these fillings as you see fit. Choose your own adventure!

Taco Wraps
2 spoon, serves 4, 60 mins or less

Rice:

-Bring 2 cups water to a boil
-Add in 1 cup white rice, 2 teaspoons dried turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon chili powder and some salt
-Lower temperature, cover and simmer 20 minutes or whatever the package of rice says

Beans:

-Add 1 can of black beans (or dried) to a pot
-Cover with water
-Add 3 tablespoons of my taco spice (or packaged if you prefer)
-Bring beans to a boil
-Lower temperature and simmer until the water cooks down

Chicken:

-Chop 2 chicken breasts
-Heat pan on medium
-Add a few tablespoons of your oil of choice
-Add the chicken and 3 or 4 tablespoons of my taco spice (or packaged)
-Cook about ten minutes until no longer pink in the middle

Easy Guacamole

-Chop 1 tomato, 1/2 a onion, 1 clove of garlic, and 1 avocado

-Put all ingredients in a bowl and add the juice of half a lime and salt & pepper to taste
-Mix/mash well
-Leave in fridge for 30 minutes for flavour to set

Additional ingredients you could use in the wraps:

-Chopped tomato

-Salsa

-Shredded cheese

-Lettuce/kale/spinach

-Mixed veggies sauteed in taco spice or raw

-Scrambled eggs

-Cooked tofu or tempeh

-Cilantro or parsley

Compile all fillings onto your choice of wrap, or you could serve over rice or in a salad. This is a great weeknight dinner that you can prepare ahead the night before and quickly make when you get home from work.
