Mexican Chicken Wraps by Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Mexican Chicken Wraps by Sophie Ellis-Bextor

‘During this year our eating habits have changed massively. We all eat together a lot more and we involve the kids more in the meal planning and the cooking, too. This recipe is for a quick, healthy and fun family favourite - Mexican chicken wraps. I love how colourful it all is and the kids love that they can make their own wraps with more or less of the ingredients they enjoy. It’s always tasty and fresh and zingy - also it’s something we can put together in under 30 mins so great for a midweek supper. Have a go and you can chop and change the ingredients to make it work for your house, too’ - Sophie Ellis-Bextor
