My L Turned 18

My daughter A turned 18 on Valentine's Day. I took a day off so I could spend some time with her. While she was at school, I went shopping for balloons, cake, and the ingredients for chicken wraps. I planned to fix her lunch because she had a dinner appointment with her classmates at Denny's.

L doesn't care much for filipino food except eggrolls. I didn't want to spend the whole morning preparing eggrolls so I opted to make her favorite food---Mexican food.
These are soft tortilla chicken wraps. I cut the chicken in small cubes, seasoned it with mild chili powder, some paprika, salt, pepper, and flour (for thickening). I used masa flour for the recipe above. While chicken was cooking, I added some brown rice and cooked it for about 10 minutes. For the side dish, I made a avocado salsa. If you scroll down below, you will find the recipe for Avocado Salsa.

In the hot pan, I heated up two soft tortillas. I then placed the warm tortillas on the plate, scooped about 3 tablespoon of cooked rice chicken filling. I added a tablespoon of salsa, tablespoon of sour cream, and some chopped up cilantro. Delicious, I must say.

Oh, your daughter was born on Valentine's Day? Oh wow, that's like the sweetest Valentine's gift, a baby born on that day. :)

Those Mexican chicken wraps look yummy. It's too bad though your daughter doesn't like Filipino food that much as Filipino food rocks... well, my Mom's does... :)

Happy Birthday to Lexie. How nice that she was born on Valentine's Day. Two celebrations in one day. That's wonderful.

I'm fond of Mexican food too. That Chicken wrap looks really good. I think I'll go down in a while and have brunch. Thanks for sharing.

@niceheart, chicken wraps are so easy to make and kids love it. they like to add some shredded cheese for richness.
