Chicken Taco Wraps

Is it starting to get cooler where you live? Because it’s not at all here in Arizona! The highs are still in the mid-100s! I keep waiting for the weather to cool, but it just isn’t happening yet. The only thing that’s nice about summer is that it makes Mexican food taste just that much better.

I got the idea for these from Joyful Abode. They were great! I made them very quickly and they’re low-fat, so there’s no going wrong. Dane and Kramer loved them, too! Recipe after the jump.
