The Perfect Wrap for Simple, Delicious, Nutrition!

6 southwest egglife® wraps

1-2 tbsp olive oil

1 cup onion, diced

2 lb shredded or bite-sized chicken

1 tsp cumin

 ½ tsp chili powder

4 oz can of mild green chilis, drained

non-stick cooking spray

1 jar no sugar enchilada sauce or homemade enchilada sauce

2 cups colby jack cheese, shredded

garnish: tomato, cilantro, chives


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 Fahrenheit.

Step 2

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil in the pan. Cook the onions for 3-4 minutes until the onion starts to soften. Add the bite-sized chicken pieces, cumin, and chili powder and cook until the pieces are white on the outside.  The chicken won’t be cooked all the way through at this point but will finish cooking in the oven. Stir in the drained green chilis.

Step 3

Spray a 9×13″ pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Step 4

Add a large spoonful of enchilada sauce to each wrap and spread the sauce on one side of the wrap.

Step 5

Add chicken and sauce down the center of the wrap, which will be about ¼- ½  cup of chicken. Sprinkle with a generous sprinkle of cheese.

Step 6

Roll the wraps up and place in the baking dish either seam side up or seam side down.  Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the top of the chicken enchiladas.

Step 7

Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the top of the enchiladas.

Step 8

Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350F until cooked through and the cheese is melted.

Step 9

Garnish with cilantro and chopped tomato if desired, and serve with sour cream, chives, and chopped tomatoes if desired.

      Cheryl, you can get a free version of Carb Manager as an app on your phone or computer. You can enter any custom recipe and it will tell you the nutritional values in each serving. Save it and use it with thousands of other foods to keep a food journal. I even linked it to my Fitbit.

    Can you freeze the egg wraps?

  3. Dave

    This was absolutely delicious! Used 18 oz of precooked chicken and canned medium spice enchilada sauce. Otherwise true to the recipe. My wife and I could only eat half bcs it’s so filling but very tasty. The wraps are perfect and we love them. Great job!!! And a quick note to those who are too lazy to do the math on nutrition…for crying out loud just read labels, add up the numbers, and divide by servings. Not rocket science.

    Made these tonight, but used left over taco meat, raw onions, but then followed directions. Put a small amount of enchilada sauce in bottom of dish.
    These are a wonderful answer to an enchilada lover on a low carb diet!!

  8. Cindy Gayle

    Yes, I too would like to know if this recipe can be frozen.
    Can these wraps be frozen in general? Will they dry out?
