Spicy chicken burrito (slimming world friendly)

I have made burrito style meals before but never included a wrap as they were high in syns but now the WW (not going to give them the full title) wraps are a healthy extra thought would be a fab meal and taste a bit ‘naughty’ which is always good. I made these and said nothing to my family and no one thought they were slimming world friendly 🙂
The quantities I give are very generous and you will probably have lots of leftovers but they keep for a good few days in the fridge. I havent frozen any of the ingredients so can’t advise you on that I’m sorry.
I know it seems like a lot a faffing about but it really is a little cooking and then an assembly job. As usual the spice level is up to you I don’t like it very hot so if you use my measurements they’ll be a medium spice level but feel free to increase or lower the heat as you like.
Ingredients for the chicken filling:
3 chicken breasts
1 onion (chopped)
2 cloves garlic (crushed)
1 tsp chili powder (mild or hot depending on preference)
1 tsp ground cumin
6 fluid ounces passata
salt and pepper
Ingredients For the salsa:
1 can good quality chopped tomatoes
1 red onion (chopped)
2 cloves garlic (crushed)
2 tbsp fresh corinader (chopped)
salt and pepper
8oz boiled rice
1 can black eyed beans (heated and drained)
6 WW high fibre wraps

Method:

Place the chicken breasts in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil then lower the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes until no pink is inside the chicken if you pull it apart. Leave to cool in the water and when cool drain the water away and shred the chicken by pulling it apart with your fingers or two forks.

Spray a small frying pan with low cal spray oil then fry the chopped onion over a low heat until its soft, Add the garlic, cumin and chili and fry for another minute then add the passata and cook for a few minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper then mix into the shredded chicken.

Mix all the salsa ingredients together and set aside.

Make up the burritos by laying one wrap on the board and placing a tablespoon of rice down the centre of the wrap, Top with about a tablespoon of the chicken , Half a tablespoon of beans and half a tablespoon of salsa.

To make up the burrito fold up the bottom end of the wrap then fold over the sides and finally roll it over so everything in tucked in. It might leak a little but it will taste just as good 🙂

Serves 6 and syn free if using the wraps as a healthy extra.

P.S. All the ingredients are really good just served in a bowl without the wrap too : )
