Avocado Chicken Quinoa & Vegetable Lettuce Wraps


These wraps are a light & refreshing meal that are sure to satisfy, especially in this exhausting heat. You could simply just use the filling as a side even. Yet, I think add the wrap is a good way to amp a meal up and great way to make it a meal. This combination is bursting with flavor and texture, all the while packing in a ton of nutrients, it's a win win in my opinion. Also, easy for travel and can assemble on your picnic in the mountains are snacks at the beach.
