Healthy Chicken and Black Bean Tacos


Ingredients

1lb of Ground Chicken
1 packet of organic seasoning or low sodium (I found Simply Organic Taco Seasoning)
1 large onion, diced
1 can of low sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup low sodium salsa
8 whole wheat, low carb high fiber tortilla wraps
2 Jalapenos sliced
Shredded low fat cheese
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 cup natural Guacamole e.g. Wholly Guacamole (or own homemade)
Light Sour Cream
Shredded lettuce (romaine or iceberg)
Taco sauce (preferably light)

Preparation

Pre-heat oven to 365 degrees and grease your baking dish with coconut oil or cooking spray.

In a nonstick pan, cook chicken on high until cooked through.  Add one tablespoon of water and taco seasoning (save 2 tablespoons of seasoning).  Remove chicken from pan and add onions, black beans and 2 tablespoons of leftover seasoning.  If it seems a little dry try adding a dash of water

Fill each of your whole wheat wraps with chicken, onion & black bean mixture.




Top with Jalapenos, salsa and shredded cheese. Roll wrap tightly and lightly brush with olive oil.  Repeat until all wraps are filled and put in baking dish.
 


Bake at 365 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.
