Fiesta Chicken Wraps made low carb
Low carb products.
Since moving to America, I’ve been quite amazed at how many food products have ‘low carb’ on their packaging. While I’ve seen protein bars and some beverages include this in their labels, I never would have thought items like cereal, candy and even breads have this too.
From previous experience, I’d tried out a couple of ‘low carb’ cereals before and the kindest critique I can give them is that they reminded me of cardboard.
Actually, cardboard would have been more appetising.
Safe to say, I was not a huge fan. That was okay though- I don’t follow a low carb diet and have no real need to eat low carb at this stage in my life. Saying that, it is a dietary lifestyle I’ve recently started to enjoy experimenting with. Last year, I went vegan for a week, paleo for a week and sugar free for a week to be able to use those times to spark some creativity in the kitchen and learning to swap different ingredients out to be able to fit these lifestyles. I’ve also received quite a number of recipe requests which are just that- Low in carbs yet high in flavor so just for the fun of it, I’ve decided to go low-carb for a full week.
Friends, you have been warned. If I am cranky and evil, blame my grain (Free) brain.
When my friends at Flatout sent over a package of a variety of their flatbreads, I didn’t even realise one of them was low carb. It wasn’t until I went to make a breakfast burrito that I noticed that one of them was their ProteinUP Carb Down variety- Boasting half the carbs yet double the protein. I was definitely intrigued, as it certainly didn’t have the consistency of cardboard and actually resembled a standard flatbread.
Friends, I am not one to follow a low carb diet but I must say- I was VERY impressed with it. It had the taste and texture of a standard flatbread and with no artificial aftertaste. In fact, I found the flatbread to be quite delicious sans topping.
Bar one flatbread I ate on it’s own, I used the remaining ones to make an old family favorite recipe (Mexican style chicken) into wraps- Enter- these healthy low carb Mexican chicken wraps!
These healthy low carb Mexican chicken wraps are spicy, sweet and flavorful all in one! It’s the perfect sandwich for anyone to enjoy, low carb or not! The Mexican chicken filling is quick and easy to prepare- Either using store bought plain grilled chicken or as I did, making my pulled tandoori chicken, minus any of the seasonings. I used a unique sauce blend which most likely fails on the ‘Mexican’ part, but trust me, it helped bring out the chipotle salsa flavor- Maple syrup. It really takes the Mexican chicken filling to the next level! These are also perfect to batch cook and freeze- Simply prep them in one go and freeze individually for grab and go lunches, dinners or even a filling snack!
HACK! Long term readers know that I consider cilantro to be edible punishment so omitted it from
my life this sandwich. Saying that, when I used to make this Mexican chicken back in Australia (we ate it with tacos or over pasta…don’t ask), my mum and sister would top theirs with this poison herb.
Make these delicious low carb Mexican Chicken Wraps and while you should be wary of products labelled as ‘low carb’, don’t be afraid to give some a shot.

Generally for me low carb processed stuff equals problems because of the sweeteners used, though I haven’t tried a wrap – so cool, I’m intrigued. This recipe looks yummy and anything Mexican makes me happy 🙂
Thanks so much, Michele- Mexican is always a winner!
Totally all over this one! Any kind of Mexican/fajita chicken is a must-make for me 🙂
🙂 Yay! thanks, Alysia!
I actually just bought a very similar wrap from my local discount grocery store Aldi’s. Not for the low carb, but because the square shape of the wrap actually folds better to hold toppings. I’ve tried all their options and these just have the best texture and shape for what I want. Maybe someday they’ll have a regular carb option, I’d probably get that. I have some vegan chicken in the freezer and this looks like a great use up for that 🙂
They do wrap really well, don’t they!
Ooo sweet and savory indeed! LOL putting chicken dishes either in tacos/lettuce leaves/on pasta/on rice/in a sandwich. Totally us. If the food fits…
I need to tell you about our freezer. My mum legit saves EVERYTHING.
When you post things like this, it makes me sad that I don’t live in America! I can’t even get protein powder here, let alone high protein wraps – they sound amazing! Protein in the form of meat and fish is crazy expensive too, so I’ve been eating a much higher carb diet to compensate. Although, I’m not really complaining…
That actually sounds amazing……Baguettes are totally low carb!
Mexican flavors are my favorites, and I love the idea to use a little maple syrup to enhance the flavors – I’ve gotta try that! I like Flatout wraps because they taste pretty good and I think they’re bigger and a lot more flexible than a lot of standard tortillas/wraps, so they don’t break when I wrap them up.
YES! It seriously takes it up a notch!
Mexican food is my jam! My best friend is from mexico and when I went to visit her in AZ over the summer her Mom made the best authentic mexican food i’ve ever tasted. I think the only thing that I would add to this wrap would be avocado of course 🙂
Excuse me, I am not from Mexico…..I thought we were besties!
i have tried their flatbreads and i really like it. their fiber up or whatever the extra fiber version is, thats equally delicious. i love the idea of wrap..or could see myself making quesadilla with this recipe.
They have such a delicious range!
Some low carb foods were super tasty, others tasted as if they belonged to The Home Depot. Now I’m not one to believe that carbs can virtually be “eliminated” by fiber, so I don’t really pay attention to net carbs. Anyways, I’ve seen those FlatOut wraps EVERYWHERE. They seem to be getting really popular, eh? I cannot wait to try the ones you gave me 😀 I’ll probably pack some for lunch!
I hope you’ve tried this!!!!!!
I have eaten a few low carb wraps that I enjoyed! I like to make beef enchilada’s with them.
Oh yum- I keep forgetting to include more beef in my diet!
I’ve never really tried low-carb breads. Usually, I consume fewer carbs by using one slice of bread or omitting bread altogether. These wraps look amazing though. I really like that you most meal ideas in addition to desserts.
Thank you 🙂
“…to be able to use those times to spark some creativity in the kitchen and learning to swap different ingredients out to be able to fit these lifestyles”. I think this is so cool – and totally part of your job. I am not vegetarian/paleo/low carb or anything, but I still really enjoy trying out different “diets” purely for the curiosity and creativity sake. I’ve tried flat out wraps and super loved them. I was impressed by their size and ability to stay sturdy. Though, the idea of a low carb wrap urks me out a bit. How does that even work? I’d be curious to see the ingredients.
Also – adding maple syrup – genius.
Thanks so much, Cora! That means alot- It is something I strive for and I guess makes this space on the internet unique 🙂
Seriously. I don’t advocate low carb diets because they don’t work for me (personally) but low carb wraps by Flatout (or any of their breads) are AMAZING
Big YAY for a savory recipe! This wrap sounds and looks awesome. Great wrapping job as well 😉 I usually add maple syrup to my slowcooker beef recipes. It’s a game changer.
Low carb products are not really a thing in Germany (surprise!!!!) but in fact I am a huuuge fan of all skinny recipes to make up on the lack of available products.
LOLOL. Stop giving away my secrets haha! ;p
ALDI USA has a huge low carb range! Silly Germany.
ooooh I am all about those flatout wraps! These chicken wraps look deeeelish! You can join me on my low carb journey 😉
🙂 We won’t be very merry to be around then.
Wait. Wut. Something savory on TBMW??? Amaaaazing.
