Southwestern Wraps Recipe Learn like a Pro 

If you’re anything like me, you probably start the year with a million resolutions, the primary one being to eat better and do more exercise. I don’t know about you, but I try hard, at least in January. However, after Valentine’s Day, when chocolates and other sweets are involved, things start to go south. But January is still here, so I’m not too worried.

I’m really happy that Flatout Flatbread and I collaborated because I’m sharing with you a delicious and nourishing Southwestern wrap recipe. You won’t feel like you’re missing out on anything because this wrap is so delicious. And you’re not because I packed this full of healthful ingredients like grilled chicken breast, roasted red peppers, spinach, black beans, corn, and green onions. I also included some jalapeño pepper and other spices for a little heat.
