Just because your kids have to trade in their placemat for a brown bag or lunchbox, doesn’t mean they can’t still eat like the princes and princesses they are. So this year, toss the PB&J aside (although we do love a good peanut butter sandwich) and prepare just as easy and delicious meals for dinner that make mouth-watering meals for your child’s next days’ lunch, without any need to re-heat!
- 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
- ½ cup cubed red pepper
- ¼ cup chopped cilantro
- ½ teaspoon hot pepper sauce
- 1 avocado peeled, pitted and diced
- 4 8- inch flour tortillas
- 4 red leaf or Boston lettuce leaves
Combine chicken, tomato, cilantro and hot sauce in a medium bowl and toss well
Add avocado and toss again
Divide chicken mixture among tortillas and top with lettuce leaves
Roll up and cut in half.
