Chipotle Chicken Wrap

Children love wraps because they’re a less formal dinner option which they can eat with their hands. 

This recipe is a lovely introduction to the smoky spicy flavour of the Mexican chipotle pepper. A chipotle pepper is a smoked and dried ripe jalapeno chili pepper used for seasoning. It is usually used in Tex-Mex dishes. Its heat is similar to Tabasco sauce. It gives a smoky flavor and a little kick of heat. 

I really encourage you to use herbs and spices in your children’s food. They are natural flavour enhancers and can teach your children the joy and pleasure that comes with eating. 

If your little one isn’t yet used to spicy flavours, I suggest serving the wrap with some natural yoghurt or cream cheese.


Any leftover cooked chicken mixture can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days. It is also suitable for home freezing. Allow the mixture to cool and refrigerate for 30 minutes before popping in the freezer.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 500 g breast chicken sliced into strips
  • 300 g fresh tomatoes chopped
  • 2 tbsp chipotle paste
  • 7 small tortilla wraps

  • In a frying pan heat the oil and cook the onion until softened, doing this slowly over a low heat will produce a lovely flavour.
  • Add the garlic and stir for 1 min and then add the chicken and brown in the pan.

  • Cook for 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Divide the mix between the wraps, add the lettuce and roll up.


Serving Suggestion:
If you find the chipotle a little too spicy, you can add natural yogurt to your wrap to take away some of the heat.
