Savory Tuesday: Yummy chicken avocado wraps

If you are looking for an easy meal to make with leftover grilled chicken I have just the thing for you “Chicken avocado wraps” Not only are these wraps delicious, they are also good for you. I used 2 avocados so I did not have to use mayonnaise. Avocados are a healthy source of fats and they contain vitamins A, B6, C, E and K making them a great addition to a healthy diet.

The secret to these delicious wraps is chimichurri sauce. Chimichurri sauce is a sauce of parsley, cilantro, red chilies, lime juice, garlic and olive oil often served with grilled meat. I used leftover chimichuri sauce from the night before which was a time saver.

1/ 2 tsp red pepper flakes
