Chicken Enchilada Salad Wraps

It’s getting to be that time of the year when you need to make dinner but you want to beat the heat.  Today’s recipe is one that I created with that in mind.  Your kitchen won’t heat up more just because you are fixin’ dinner and this recipe would work great for a picnic in the park too.  This recipe all begins with a can of Swanson’s chunk chicken.  With no need to cook the chicken, not only do you get the benefits of a cool house but it also makes this a cinch to whip together.

The recipe is a fusion a chicken salad and chicken enchiladas.  You get those flavors you find in a chicken enchilada with the convenience of a chilled chicken salad.  I incorporated a can of black beans but if you would prefer, you can always use another can of chicken in it’s place.
