Caribbean Jerk Wraps

Caribbean Jerk WrapsDon't want to slave over a hot stove in the summer heat? Don't want to cook at all whether it's hot or cold? (Because when I don't want to cook it doesn't make a difference what temperature it is outside).

The pineapple and mint give this a nice, cool flavor, the rice gives it some heft and the jerk seasonings give it a nice little kick. All in all a perfect summer meal for when you don't want to cook. Not much anyway.

salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/3 cup jerk sauce (this is the bottled liquid version, not the dry spice)
1 1/2 pounds chicken, cooked and shredded
2 cups cooked rice
3/4 cup diced fresh pineapple
1/4 cup chopped macadamia nuts
3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
4 10-inch tortillas suitable for wraps

In a bowl mix the salt, cinnamon, allspice and jerk sauce then divide among four tortillas and spread on tortillas.

Top with cooked, warm rice and cooked, warm shredded chicken. Then top with nuts, mint and lime juice, dividing each among tortillas. Roll up burrito style and serve warm.
