  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 medium lime
  • 2 tablespoon chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin, ground
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound chicken breast
  • 1 cup quinoa, uncooked
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 6 tortilla, whole wheat
  • 1 cup black beans, canned
  • 2 cup shredded lettuce
  • 4 ounce cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup yogurt, plain

Serve With

  • 1 medium cantaloupe


  • Preparing a day or two ahead, blend the marinade together in a food processor; cilantro, garlic, juice of one lime, 1-2 chipotle peppers (if using), chili powder, cumin and olive oil. Place chicken in a zip lock bag with the marinade and allow it to sit for an hour or even overnight.  The chicken can then be baked in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes; covering the chicken for the first 20 minutes will keep it moist.  Cook until no longer pink. Allow to cool completely and shred.
  • Cook quinoa as directed on package.
  • To assemble, mash avocado in a small bowl with a fork. Spread a small amount over each tortilla wrap, then layer with quinoa, chicken, beans, lettuce, shredded cheese and yogurt.  Fold and roll up, slice in half.  Be sure to not over-stuff so it's not too difficult to wrap up.
  • Serve with fresh cantaloupe slices.
