Chicken Caesar Wrap

Despite the name, the Caesar salad is not Roman or Greek, it’s origin is actually Mexico. Invented by Caesar Cardini, it’s named after his restaurant “Caesar’s” on Avenida Revolución in Tijuana, Mexico.

What I’m going to do is tip my hat to Mexico by using this staple of Mexican cuisine, and wrap it up like a burrito. Bingo! Below are the simple five step instructions on how to do that, followed by ingredients, nutrition facts, and directions. Or, you could just watch the video above!

Step 1: Place ingredients in bottom-center of large tortilla.
Step 2: Fold both sides in and pinch at the center.
Step 3: Using your thumbs, fold bottom portion containing ingredients up and over the center then tuck in.
Step 4: Keeping sides tucked in, roll forward until fully wrapped.
If desired, you may seal wrap closed by searing it seam side down on a plancha flat top or skillet.

Okay so without further ado, everything else you need to know is below!
