Crispy Chicken Wraps

Here's a quick recipe that has become one of our favorite easy weeknight dinners.  I found this recipe on pinterest via Mel's Kitchen Cafe a while back and loved how simple, yet tasty they turned out to be.  The original recipe calls for cilantro, but I chose to leave it out....just because I'm not a huge fan of cilantro.  Also, we usually make 2-3 large sized wraps.  But feel free to change up how many or how big you want them....we usually end up saving the other half for leftovers because they are so big.  
 Crispy Chicken Wraps
You will need:
-1/3 cup mayonnaise, light or regular
-1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
-3 green onions, sliced very thin
-2 celery ribs, chopped fine
-2 heaping Tbsp sour cream, light or regular
-2 tsp hot sauce, we used Louisiana Original....it doesn't make them too spicy at all
-1 rotisserie chicken, skin discarded, and shredded into bite sized pieces, approx 3 cups
-2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
-4 flour tortillas (burrito/wrap size)
-cooking spray
*Whisk the mayo, cilantro, green onions, celery, sour cream, and hot sauce together in a large bowl.  Add chicken and toss to combine. 
*Sprinkle cheese over tortillas leaving a 1/2 inch border around edges.  Then arrange chicken mixture down the center of tortilla.  Roll up stuffed tortilla burrito/wrap style.  Spray tortillas all over lightly with cooking spray
*Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat for one minute or until hot.  Arrange wraps seam side down in skillet and cook until golden brown and crispy 2-3 minutes per side.  Serve immediately.
