I love wraps, particularly chicken wraps. They make a quick and easy meal when it is too hot to cook or those nights when you are trying to cram in too many activities and want to eat NOW! Throw in some bacon and ranch and a whole bunch of veggies - mmmmm!
Don't like ranch dressing or bacon (gasp!) don't use it. Want some avocados or fresh cilantro? add it. I think this Ginger Salad Dressing would be delicious on top, maybe with matchstick carrots and some cucumber added in for extra crunch.

- 8 pieces bacon (pork, turkey, beef, tempeh)
- 4 8" tortillas or wraps (some suggestions: spinach, sun dried tomato, whole wheat, gluten-free)
- 8 ounce cooked chicken breast (sliced or diced)
- 8 lettuce leaves or handful of spinach for each wrap
- ½ red onion (cut into slices)
- 6 ounce shredded cheese (Monterey, provolone, cheddar, etc.)
- 4 tablespoons ranch dressing
- 1 large tomato (diced)
- avocado (sliced)
- fresh herbs such as cilantro (parsley or basil)
- Cook bacon until just getting crispy. I like to do mine in the broiler while I chop up the other ingredients, just check on it every few minutes.
- To assemble, place wrap on a smooth surface and top with lettuce or spinach leaves.
- Add chicken, bacon, tomato and cheese on top of the lettuce, making sure to evenly distribute across the length of the wrap.
- Fold the top and bottom of the wrap over the filling about 1". Gently roll the wrap over the assembled ingredients and continue rolling until you reach the other side.
- Cut rolled wrap in half and secure each side with a toothpick. Repeat.
