The Anti-Chicken Fingers Movement ~ Stir Fry in a Tortilla

This was the perfect meal for a Friday night.  Cheap, easy...and quick.  As you know, I'm very into health-friendly foods.  I like to find amazing recipes that are lower in bad fats and high in protein and healthy carbs.  Anytime you can sneak in a ton of veggies into a great meal, it's going to be a winner all the way around.  This will be one I make again, for sure! Enjoy!


  • 1 Tbl olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • 1 yellow or orange bell pepper sliced
  • 1 box 0 oz mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup sliced red onion 
  • 1 lb of boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked and cut up into bite-sized peices
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • salt & pepper
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas
  • 1/4 cup whipped light or fat free cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese or cheese of your choice
Warm oil in large, nonstick skillet.  Add the bell peppers, mushrooms, and red onion and cook, stirring frequently for five minutes or until tender. Reduce heat to medium and cover, cooking five minutes longer.
Add chicken, chili powder, cumin, and salt and pepper to taste, tossing to mix well.  Cook and stir until heated through well.
Meanwhile, warm tortillas in oven.  Spread each tortilla with cream cheese, then top with chicken & veggie mixture, then with cheese.  Roll up tortillas, and enjoy. 

We just ate these alone, no sides.  Like I said, easy for a Friday night!  Happy Eating Friends! ~Trina
