It’s a Wrap {Recipe: Buffalo Chicken and Black Bean Wrap}

Swanson’s chicken challenged me to create a recipe to solve the 5 o’clock dinner dilemma. My biggest challenge with dinnertime is to remember to set out the meat from the freezer. Nine times out of ten I have a plan, but if that plan requires simply removing the meat from the freezer, my mama brain goes mush and I forget until it’s time to begin making dinner!

When the microwave defrost button is even more than I have time for, I look into my pantry to see what alternatives there might be. A simple can of Swanson’s Premium Chunk Chicken can solve the dinner dilemma in a flash.

I created a Buffalo Chicken and Black Bean Wrap using Swanson’s Premium Chunk Chicken. I am a huge fan of wraps and my family is too. Everything seems to taste good when it is wrapped in a warm tortilla! The bit of heat provided by the wing sauce gives this wrap a grown up flavor, but kids love it too.

How do you solve the 5 O’Clock Dinner Dilemma?

Recipe: Buffalo Chicken and Black Bean Wrap

  1. Heat chicken and black beans in a medium saucepan. Add Buffalo Wing Sauce and heat through.
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon Ranch dressing on each tortilla. Add a small handful of spring salad mix and shredded cheddar cheese.
  3. Spoon 1/4 cup of chicken and black bean mixture into tortilla. Wrap up, burrito style, and serve warm.

  1. I love wraps as well, they are so versatile! Chicken and black bean combo sounds delish!

  2. Fun and quick, I love it! I’m with you on the meat issue. I use to try to buy meat to freeze but I’d forget it was there or never take it out in time.

  3. Oh sounds yummy! Would be a great lunch box sandwich for work!

  4. My mouth is watering! That looks delicious!

  5. wraps are a favorite at our house, too! last week, I pulled out the Penzey’s taco spice mix and made a Mexican flavored wrap for dinner that night… not a bit left for leftovers! Yum!

  6. You. Are. Kidding. This is causing my heart to freak out a little.

  7. If “chicken” has the word “buffalo” in front of it, I.am.there. Love!

  8. These looks so delicious. I must make these.

  9. That looks super yummy! Gonna put on my meal plan for next week!!!

  10. I love your creative meal planning – turning a plain wrap into something delicious. And, that picture is gorgeous!
    I have to write down a meal plan weekly or monthly. That 5 0’clock hour is not pretty if I do not have a plan in place. :)

  11. This would be wonderful for lunch at school.

  12. I always use this canned chicken for chicken salad and I don’t know why I don’t think of it for dinner!!!

    Thanks for the inspiration and as always, your photos are lovely :)

    Happy Weekend!!

  13. Yum. I will have to remember this idea. I am FAMOUS for not defrosting meat for dinner. (BTW…this canned chicken works well for Chicken Tortilla Soup, too. So easy for a quick meal.)

  14. Yum! This looks absolutely delicious. I’ve recently learned that I love black beans and this recipe is a must-try!

  15. I’m bad at taking meat out too! We throw everything on a tortilla, this sounds good, thanks!

  16. GUILTY!!!!!

    That’s my excuse for no dinner at least once (if not more) a week!

    Love this idea! Thanks K!

  17. Well styled! I think wraps are one of the hardest things to photograph and you made it seem so effortless!

  18. Totally on board with this Kristen. What a fun challenge. I love making easy weeknight meals with what’s in my cabinet, and that usually includes canned chicken. Sounds delicious!

  19. I really need one of these for lunch today! They look absolutely, positively delicious!

  20. Great idea for a last-minute dinner. We’ll have to add this to the repertoire…I am constantly forgetting to take the meat out of the freezer. In that case, I typically make a kitchen sink salad–canned tuna, chickpeas, whatever veg I have in the fridge over lettuce with olive oil and vinegar. Or when we’re not so healthy, I wrap hotdogs in tortillas with cheese.
