Ingredients

Sauce:

  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • ¼ cup finely chopped seedless cucumber

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • ground black pepper to taste

Wraps:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 ½ pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into thin strips

  • 1 cup thick and chunky salsa

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 8 (10 inch) flour tortillas

  • 1 (10 ounce) bag baby spinach leaves

Directions

  1. Make the sauce: Mix mayonnaise, cucumber, honey, cayenne pepper, and black pepper together in a bowl until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until needed.

  2. Make the wraps: Heat olive oil in a skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken strips; cook and stir until they start to turn golden and are no longer pink in the middle, about 8 minutes. Stir in salsa, honey, and cayenne pepper. Reduce the heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors have blended, about 5 minutes.

  3. Stack tortillas, 4 at a time, in a microwave oven and heat until warm and pliable, 20 to 30 seconds per batch.

  4. Spread each tortilla with 1 tablespoon mayonnaise-cucumber sauce, top with a layer of spinach, and arrange about 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture on top.

  5. Fold the bottom of each tortilla up about 2 inches, and start rolling from the right side. When wrap is halfway rolled, fold the top of the tortilla down, enclosing the filling, and continue rolling to make a tight, compact cylinder.
