Ingredients

  • 2 whole wheat tortillas
  • 2 T pesto (homemade-see recipe below or store bought)
  • 2 thin slices provolone cheese (optional)
  • 1 chicken breast, cooked and sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms, crimini or baby bella
  • 1/4 cup sundried tomatoes (dried)
  • ½ cup baby spinach, washed and dried

Directions

  1. Lay tortillas out on a flat surface. Spread 1 tablespoon of pesto on each tortilla down the center. Place 2 slices of provolone on top of the pesto, along with half of the chicken, mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach in each tortilla.
  2. Heat a flat pan or skillet over low/medium heat on the stove. Fold each tortilla into thirds, creating a flat surface on both sides.
  3. Depending on your pan size cook one or both of the wraps for about 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cheese is melted.
