It’s official. I am rebelling against the universe.

Grilled Tex-Mex Chicken and Qunioa Wraps-4

This morning I woke up to a good foot of the white stuff. Yeah, snow. It is miserable and that’s all I am going to say about it because I am not going to complain to you guys anymore about all the snow.

Instead let’s talk about your weekend. We never do that. It’s always me, me, food, me and some more food.

Someone please tell me they enjoyed some beautiful spring weather, maybe did some grilling or Banana Bread making or gosh maybe you even went all out and made some killer Grilled Buffalo Shrimp Sandwiches.  Oh, I wish we still had those leftovers sitting in the fridge.

Or maybe you just had a super lazy weekend and watched the Masters or better yet maybe you watched some heavy drama TV show.

Honestly, watching golf is so unappealing to me. I CAN’T do it. I want to scratch my eyes out. Plus, I am all about the drama. Fill me in. What are the good shows these days? I feel like I have not watch TV in forever. My last favorite show was Gilmore Girls and I think that ended like six years ago.

Yeah, I don’t watch a whole lot of TV. It’s bad.

Tex Mex Chicken and Quinoa WrapsOh and yeah, I was a total Gilmore Girls fan. Love that show, still do.

I watch reruns when ever I can.

It’s pretty pathetic.

Ok, I have probably bored you to death.

I am sorry. Let talk Tex-Mex.

Or really lets talk wraps. Cause wraps are good.

Especially when they’re grilled. Like on the grill. It’s awesome.

Plus, there’s Tex-Mex grilled chicken, quinoa, the most amazing sweet and spicy Tex Mex dipping sauce, red peppers, spinach, avocado, cheddar cheese and cilantro. Then your gonna want to smother the whole thing in the sauce. The sauce is good. The chicken is good. Geez, the whole wrap is good.

Oh and guys, I can not stop with the avocados. I am pretty much going through at least one a day. At least. Probably two. It’s getting ridiculous.

  1. I’m one of those people who still hasn’t tried to cook and eat quinoa. Theres a bag waiting to be opened in my kitchen cupboard but for some reason I find most recipes for quinoa to be a bit too poncy or ‘try-hard’. This recipe I think though is it! Got some chicken leftover from dinner today and I’m making this for my lunch tomorrow!

    1. Oh geez! I hope you love this, I dont want to be the reason you dont like quinoa! LOL
      Let me know what you think!

  2. Mmmmm….I wish I would have made this for dinner!! P.S. I am officially rebelling against snow. BE GONE already!!

    1. Lauren, the snow will not stop! I swear we have gotten two + feet today! And it is still going strong! HELP!

  3. I want to guzzle that tex mex sauce!! I love the use of quinoa in this wrap instead of just rice!!

  4. LOVE the look of that spicy Tex-Mex sauce, Tieghan! I can see myself slathering that on everything this summer!

  5. I just bought a huge bag of quinoa. I’m trying to experiment with some tasty recipes and this looks great with the quinoa.

    1. The quinoa works really nicely with the Tex-Mex flavors. Plus, it so healthy! Thanks for reading Meagan!

  6. I considered making quinoa last night, but got lazy and just chopped up some lettuce for lunch today instead. I’m regretting my decision!
