Leftover Dinner Wraps – great when cooking with kids or for fast easy meals


Leftovers can make the most creative ( and easiest) meals. We always seem to have some chicken left over from whatever we make for dinner. And I have goat cheese galore in my home – you probably keep some in your cheese drawer too. And being in California, I always have flour tortillas in my fridge ( and corn ones for the family members who are gluten intolerant- I personally prefer the flour ones).

And if you have pickles somewhere in your pantry, or sun dried tomatoes (we make our own) – along with low fat mayo, you are ready to make a quick wrap dinner.

You can use whatever you have left over in the fridge that is protein or vegetable – along with some sort of creamy dressing – mayo or hummus, tahini or dips such as eggplant or edamame dip will work too. This is what I used today for dinner.

Leftover Dinner that is Yummy

  • Flour tortillas
  • Low fat Mayo
  • Leftover chicken that was in ratatouille – removed from the ratatouille ( it was juicy and still had some of the sauce on it which made it even more delicious)
  • Sun Dried Tomatoes
  • Slices of pickles
  • Chopped lettuce


  1. Spread the mayo over one side of the tortilla thinly
  2. Add the chicken cut into small bite sized pieces
  3. Sprinkle chopped sun dried tomatoes, sliced pickles and shredded lettuce on the tortilla keeping the mixture towards the middle.
  4. Wrap it and serve with potato chips or corn chips along with cherry tomatoes to pop into your mouth! Below is some of our tomato bounty.Differentvarietiesoftomatoes
