Chicken-Bacon Wraps (with Hummus)

One fun part of having a baby where I'm from is people bring food. Lots of food. And it's always so fun trying other people's recipes! This recipe went over very, very well with my taste-buds. So well, in fact, that I had to get the recipe. Thank you, Sarah T.! 

But...I have this problem. I really can never follow a recipe to the letter. Ever. I always have to add more..or less...or put in my own thing. Well, this recipe I pretty much stuck true to recipe and it was just as delish as when she made it for me. Yum! Oh, and yes, I used full on fat pig bacon. I don't do that turkey bacon stuff. And I used mayo. Real mayo. But mostly because I had just finished a work out and what good is working out of you can't have like, bacon and stuff after? Or ice cream..but that's another story. =) 
Next time I make these, I will be adding avocado.

Chicken Bacon Wraps

1/2 c. mayonnaise
5 green onions, chopped
2 tsp. lemon juice
4 whole wheat tortillas
2 c. shredded romaine lettuce
2 c. chopped tomato
4 pieces extra crispy bacon
2 c. shredded chicken (I used my leftover teriyaki chicken)

Combine mayo, green onions and lemon juice in a small bowl.
Spread evenly on the four tortillas. Top each with romaine, tomato, bacon and chicken. Roll up and seriously enjoy!!

These days, I love hummus. I go through my phases and right now, I'm in a hummus and pita chip phase. But I like to make my own hummus. I like mine with skads of garlic and pepper. And lemon juice. So store bought stuff really just doesn't cut it for me. This recipe is my favorite. I eat it all day long. Is that a bad thing? 


1 16 oz can of chickpeas  (garbanzo beans)
1/4 cup liquid from can of chickpeas
3-5 tablespoons lemon juice (depending on taste)
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini (optional but in my opinion necessary)
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp pepper (or more!)
2 tablespoons olive oil


Drain chickpeas and set aside liquid from can. Combine remaining ingredients in blender or food processor. Add 1/4 cup of liquid from chickpeas. Blend until thoroughly mixed and smooth.Serve with pita chips. (I like Stacys)

Craig's Wrap, sans tomatoes

My wrap, loaded down with tomatoes. Yum!

 The entire delish meal!


  1. Yep. More chicken. I'm gonna try this one too!

  2. Yum! Yum! And yum!!! Speaking of, there should be skads of hummus here but I think everyone makes there own because I can buy dried garbanzo and canned garbanzo beans all day long but no ready made hummus anywhere.
    Can't wait to make these, but first, must buy a blender and find bacon. Yup, have not seen any bacon yet, but then, I wasn't really looking
