"Great picnic or lunch sandwich, with a salsa twist. For a spicier version, add some finely chopped jalapeno chile peppers! It's a wrap!"

This recipe was wonderful. I tweaked it a tiny bit by adding celery, garlic salt, 2 tablespoons of taco seasoning, and using fat free ranch dressing instead of mayo. I was trying for a southwestern flair. The fresh salsa is a great addition, making it very refreshing. I am a therapist in a hospital, and we made this for cooking group. All of the other therapists and the patients want the recipe!
This was okay as is, however, I added shredded cheddar and instead of mayo. I used ranch dressing mixed with the salsa for a "calypso" type dressing.
Fast and full of flavor! This has quickly become a family favorite. I use a super-market roasted chicken instead of canned chicken, add a third of a jalepano pepper and an extra tablespoon of fresh roasted salsa from the local farmer's market.I use red onion and add cilantro. We roll it up in Lavash bread (also called cracker bread?) and slice it into sections. Perfect! Make extra and your teenages will put this on anything!
On its face - not a great recipe. Canned chicken and nothing more than some lettuce leaves. I do think that the 3-star rating I'm giving it, which means average to me, is generous. However, I did seize upon this recipe because it did inspire me - I did like the idea of the mayonnaise and salsa. So I admit I changed this up quite substantially - and took a mediocre recipe, in my book, to something awesome good. Canned chicken? No...rotisserie chicken infinitely better. I used a good jarred salsa, with a LITTLE minced onion, and equal parts mayonnaise and sour cream. Just slathered that creamy sauce on the tortillas (whole wheat) before heaping on the chicken - didn't mix it altogether. Rather than lettuce I used fresh baby spinach leaves. I also piled on some cooked, crumbled bacon, chopped Roma tomatoes, and shredded cheddar cheese. Can't even begin to describe how delicious this was - five stars for sure. This recipe was great for brainstorming but not, I'm afraid, on its own.
Probably my favorite recipe from this site. I live with two roommates, one of which is a guy and is used to his mothers "home cooking" and he loved these!! I added some fresh cilantro and that gave it a very fresh taste. This a great meal for one of those hot summer nights!
Added sauted garlic... this is a great quick supper item. Fool around with it and change things according to what is in stock in your house ...can't go wrong! PC
I never really understand my husband, but he hated this and wouldn't even eat it. When I asked what is wrong he complained only that salsa and mayo don't go together. Because I don't like mayo I didn't even try it.
Yum! This is exactly what I was looking for. I should have doubled the recipe. Tasty!
