California Chicken Salad Wraps

Ok, I know what you're thinking... this looks like a taco! Even when I'm not trying to make a taco, I still make a taco. The recipe calls this a wrap, so I'll call it a wrap (I say maybe it's a taco disguised as a wrap). Whatever it's called, it's good. I loved the tangy picante sauce, lime juice and chili powder sauce. I dipped some tortilla chips in it and man it was yummy. I love the fact these are made from frozen chicken strips. I popped them into the oven and set the table while they were cooking. How much easier can you get?
I'm excited I could get online to post. I've been having Internet issues. If my Internet had a neck I would wring it! I couldn't get online last night :( I'm happy it worked tonight. I've been having blogging with drawls.

CALIFORNIA CHICKEN SALAD WRAPS
3/4 cup Picante Sauce
2 TBSP lime juice
1/2 tsp chili powder
2 cups cooked chicken strips
3 cups shredded lettuce
12 (8 inch) flour tortillas

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

I agree with Krista....I think your "taco obsession" is cute!!!!! These would be absolutely perfect for a quick weeknight meal and I think my son would love the idea of using the chicken strips!

I'm a firm believer in sticking with whatever works when it comes to feeding kids. My family loves anything taco-y too, so I can relate well. I laughed when you mentioned your internet woes; I want to wring my internet's neck all the time too.
