Don’t Panic – Quick, Easy, and Delicious Meals for your Family by Susie Martinez, Vanda Howell and Bonnie Garcia

Barbecue Chicken Wraps
Great served either warm or cold; take one to work for lunch tomorrow!

2-3 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 cup barbecue sauce
1&1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
shredded lettuce
tomato, sliced or diced
1 cup tortilla strips
6-12in. tortilla warps
ranch or blue cheese dressing, if desired


In medium bowl (or sauce pan if heating) mix shredded chicken with barbecue sauce of your choice.  Set aside. (heat if you are warming)

 If using warm method pop tortilla shell in microwave for 20 sec. to warm.  Layer ingredients down the center of each tortilla. 

Wrap up your tortilla and enjoy! 

This recipe was very quick and easy and oh, so YUMMY!  My teen daughter loves wraps and this was a hit with her for a quick lunch.

*  We also made the Crazy Good Chocolate Cake recipe (p. 235) from this book....

Teen daughter's comment:  "I haven't found too many made from scratch cakes I liked, but this one was good." 
Hubby's thought:  Anything chocolate is a hit; however, he loves his frosting so I had to make the Chocolate Buttercream Frosting (p. 220)....

My thoughts: this recipe was just the right measurements and made the perfect consistency.  Nice frosting recipe. 

My thoughts on the book.  There are so many recipes that I really would love to try in this book that look Quick and Easy and sound very Delicious. 

Great meals for your busy family!
We're all busy, but that doesn't mean we have to eat like we are. You don't have to settle for feeding your family commercially packaged meals full of sodium and preservatives or fat-laced fast food. Quick and healthy meals from your very own kitchen are easy with delicious recipes like
  • Southwestern Baked Cheese Dip
  • Thai Chicken Wraps
  • Walnut Spinach Salad
  • Homestyle Mac & Cheese
  • Slow Cooker Pork Chops
  • Oven Roasted Orange Chicken
  • Grilled Flat Iron Steak Sandwiches
  • Spicy Shrimp and Asparagus Stir-Fry
  • Fruit Pizza
  • Mexican Chocolate Mousse
  • and many more

From quick meals made on the grill or in the sauté pan to crockpot dishes that require little prep and cook while you're out for the day, the recipes in this cookbook are tasty and nutritious--and require less hands-on preparation than traditional meals. Easy appetizers and desserts; one-dish casseroles and pastas; simple soups, salads, and side dishes; and even fast breakfasts round out the selections. Meals that are freezer-friendly are marked for those who want to make ahead.
Give your family the best--the easy way!
