Description

Piri Piri (also spelled Peri Peri) is a popular spice in Portuguese food and is becoming more and more popular in North America. I first had piri piri chicken at a fast-food chicken chain named Nando's Chicken and was immediately hooked. It has a very dry but heavy spice that works phenomenally well with chicken. I was able to find piri piri chicken at my local grocery deli department, which is the main ingredient in these amazing wraps that we whipped up for dinner. The spicy wraps contain Monterey Jack cheese and fresh tomatoes to round off this simple dish that can be made for lunch, dinner or a midnight snack!

Ingredients

200 grams piri piri chicken, sliced
1 tomato
2-4 flour tortilla wraps (I used Tomato Basil wraps)
2 slices Monterey Jack cheese

Preparation

- Prep work: slice your tomatoes into small cubes and lightly salt them. Pre-heat a panini press or George Foreman grill -- if you do not have either of these available, you can grill these on a stove in a flat pan.

1. Place your cheese, chicken and tomato in the tortilla and wrap, keeping your sides tucked in and hopefully wrapped as tight as possible. You don't want the tomato or cheese leaking out when it gets hot!

2. Place on your grill and let them go for about 5-10 minutes, until the outside of the tortilla has a hard crust where the surface is touching the grill.

3. Let stand for 5-10 minutes. This is very important!

4. Cut diagonally and enjoy. We suggest sweet potato fries as a great side for these wraps.
