Chicken Hummus Wraps

So, confession time: I'm not a huge fan of hummus, but my husband loves it and I LOVE to make him happy with delicious food. I came up with this hummus recipe (which even I really like), decided to spread it on a wrap and pack it with all these delicious goodies......

....and it was a winner! I just cooked up some chicken with some basic seasoned salt, pepper and Italian seasoning and cut it into strips. For the veggies, I took advantage of what we had growing out in the garden and used a combination of green onions cut long, strips of red bell pepper, English cucumber cut lengthwise into spears, leftover (cooked) corn cut off the cob and a handfull of All American salad mix. This is a super simple solution for a light lunch or dinner and this hummus recipe got lots of ooohhhs and aaahhhss from dear husband :)

Chicken Hummus Wraps


4 cloves garlic
1 15oz. can Garbanzo beans, drain half of liquid
3 Tbsp. Tahini paste
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 ½ tsp. coriander
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

In bowl of a food processor fitted with steel blade, mince garlic first. Add Garbanzo beans with liquid, Tahini paste, coriander, cumin, salt and red pepper flakes.

With machine running, drizzle olive oil through top feeder tube. Pulse until mixture is smooth.

Transfer hummus to a container and cover. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes before serving.

***For the wrap: Spread a generous amount of hummus on prepared wrap (I used a whole wheat tortilla, but dear husband didn't like the texture :( So, I'll be looking for the official wraps next time). Layer cooked chicken strips, cucumber spears, bell pepper strips, green onions, corn cut off the cob and either Spring Salad mix, spinach leaves or iceberg lettuce. Be sure to keep filling ingredients mostly to one side (it helps when rolling the wrap). Beginning on the side with the filling, start rolling very tightly folding in the ends as you go. Enjoy!!!
