Our family loves a good picnic. Whether it’s at the park, during a hike, or when we’re out all day exploring, we love sitting on the grass with a yummy lunch. Today I’m sharing a new, family-friendly picnic recipe idea. This one is great because not only do both the kids and the adults in my family find it delicious, but it also has a boost of extra protein and it’s lower in carbs! Major score all the way around. These wraps are perfect for picnics. If you’re looking for an outside-the-box lunch idea or something easy to make and take to go, these Chicken Fajita Protein Wraps are just what you need. What gives them the extra boost of protein? The new Mission® Protein Tortilla Wraps!
Mission® Protein Tortilla Wraps have added plant-based protein, which gives them a protein boost. We were excited to give them a try since we’ve been consciously adding more plant-based protein to our diet. They taste delicious and have the same great quality you’d expect from Mission Foods tortillas, so they work well for wraps, burritos, quesadillas, and more. They’re even vegetarian-friendly since the added protein comes from plants!
Mission® Protein Tortilla Wraps are also lower in carbs and high in fiber. Using these for your sandwich wraps or snacks is a great choice to add more nutrients to your diet. Find Mission® Protein Tortilla Wraps on sale near you by clicking here.
The full recipe for Chicken Fajita Protein Wraps is below, but here are some cooking tips. Start by sautéing some boneless skinless chicken breast with bell peppers and onions, then adding packaged fajita seasoning.
To assemble the wraps to take on-the-go (for a picnic, for example), I recommend starting by putting some shredded Monterey Jack cheese on the tortilla first before adding the chicken, veggies, and other toppings. The cheese creates a barrier between the wet ingredients and the tortillas to keep them from getting too soft while traveling to your picnic spot.
I also like to assemble them each on their own square of aluminum foil so I can wrap them tightly in the foil (see the steps below for how to do a secure foil wrap) afterwards.
Voila! They are ready to pack for your picnic. Here’s the easy recipe!
