Wild West Sandwich Wrap

I am always on the look out for sandwich recipes and there are sandwich recipes everywhere. I recently was grocery shopping at Kroger and saw this recipe that came along with a coupon. You can click on this link to see the original but I'll be sharing the changes that I made here.

The main change I wanted to make to the recipe was to add black beans because  1) black beans make sense with this sandwich especially because of the spice and 2) black beans are so healthy. Black beans are high in antioxidants and fiber and B6 and magnesium. Magnesium helps to maintain healthy blood pressure and healthy iron.

Wild West Sandwich Wrap
serves about 4

  • 1/2 cup thawed frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1/4 cup red onion diced finely
  • 3 T Chipotle flavored mayo**
  • 4 Spinach Flat Out wraps
  • spinach
  • grilled chicken breast, about 1 each
  • 1 sandwich cheese slice per wrap, your fave
Combine corn, beans, onion and mayo in bowl. Top wrap with spinach, cheese, chicken and corn mixture. Roll up and wrap in plastic wrap and add to lunch box.

** Queso Fresco & Chipotle Laughing Cow triangle can be used instead of Chipotle mayo
*** Worried this is too spicey for your young lunch box carrier? Use regular mayo (or Laughing Cow Cheese) instead!
