For Mexican Confetti Chicken Paleo Tortillas you’ll need the following ingredients:
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 large orange bell pepper, finely diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, sliced into thin strips
1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 to 1 teaspoon chili powder
One 15 1/2-ounce can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
1 cup pre-shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
3/4 cup salsa
1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream, optional
- Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell peppers and cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 5 minutes.
- Add the chicken, cumin, and chili powder and cook until the chicken is no longer pink, 4 to 5 minutes. To test chicken: cut a small slice. If the liquid that comes out is clear (or no liquid comes out) it’s good to go!
- Stir in the beans, corn, cheese, and salsa and cook until the mixture is heated through and the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.
- Meanwhile, stack Spicy Wrawp paleo tortillas on a microwave-safe plate, uncovered, and heat in the microwave until warmed through, 30 to 45 seconds.
- Assemble by placing the chicken mixture down the center of each paleo tortilla.
- Wrap burrito style and serve with sour cream as desired.

- These paleo tortillas should be served warm, but you can prepare the chicken mixture without cheese ahead of time and then just warm it with the cheese later!
