A pop star recently sang that it was all about that bass. (By recently we mean six years ago… plenty recent to us!) Well, these wraps are all about the crunch: the lettuce cups provided a watery delight to the teeth, and the tortilla strips a subtle snap. (And let's not sleep on the amazing flavors of southwestern Caesar salad filling up that crunch.)

Customize It Instructions
If using chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1" dice. Follow same instructions as diced chicken.
If using steak strips, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Follow same instructions as diced chicken in Steps 1 and 3, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak strips reach minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.
Cook the Chicken
Pat chicken dry. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly browned, 3-4 minutes.
Stir in seasoning blend.
While chicken cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare Ingredients and Make Dressing
Separate leaves of lettuce for cups.
Drain black beans in a wire-mesh strainer and rinse.
Combine half the garlic (reserve remaining for chicken), half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for garnish), mayonnaise, vinegar, 1 tsp. water, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
Finish the Chicken
Add black beans, corn, and remaining garlic to pan with chicken. Stir occasionally until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-4 minutes.
Finish the Dish
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, filling lettuce cups with chicken mixture, dressing, remaining Parmesan, and tortilla strips. Bon appétit!
