Chipotle Aioli Ingredients:


  1. Prep your veggies by chopping the bell peppers and mincing the garlic. Then slice the chicken.


  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over high heat and add a good drizzle of olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the peppers in an even layer and let them cook without stirring for 3-5 minutes. Then stir and let them sit and continue to brown as you stir every couple of minutes.


  3. While the peppers cook, zest a lime and add the zest to the cooked rice. Then add the juice of half a lime to the rice and stir well. Set the rice aside.


  4. Add the chicken to the browned peppers and stir for about a minute and then remove the pan from the heat.


  5. To make the aioli, place the egg yolks, lemon juice, sugar, salt, garlic, and chipotles in adobo in a blender and blend for a few seconds. Then slowly drizzle in the canola oil with the blender on low. Once all of the oil is combined, place the lid fully on the blender and increase the speed and blend for about a minute. Scrape the sides down and then blend once more and transfer the sauce to a small bowl.


  6. To put the wraps together, heat the tortillas for about 30 seconds on each side in an empty skillet over low heat. This helps them be more pliable. Then spread some chipotle sauce on the center of the tortilla and add some rice and the chicken/peppers mixture. Top with plenty of shredded cheese and more chipotle sauce. Dab a little sauce at the top of the tortilla (the end you'll be folding towards) and then fold up the wrap and continue this process for remaining wraps you're serving.


  7. Heat the wraps so they are heated through and the cheese can melt. The outside of the wrap will be just slightly crispy. Cut in half and serve! Enjoy!


To make this wrap dairy free, use Daiya's shredded "cheese" which melts well. And swap out your sour cream for some guacamole!
