Chicken Ranch Wrap Ingredients
- Flour Tortillas. We like the larger size, around 9 to 10 inches.
- Cooked Chicken. Canned chicken makes this super quick and easy, but rotisserie chicken or any cooked, shredded chicken will work well.
- Ranch Dressing. I just use plain Ranch, but flavored Ranch would be delicious too.
- Salsa. For more of a kick, use hot salsa.
- Shredded Cheese. Cheddar, Monterey Jack or Mexican blend all work well.
- Dried Basil. If you have fresh basil, feel free to substitute it instead
- Garlic Powder. Can also use granulated garlic.
How to Make Ranch Chicken Wraps
STEP 1: Spread a 1/3 cup of shredded chicken in the center of each tortilla.
STEP 2: Add a tablespoon of Ranch dressing and salsa to each wrap.
STEP 3: Sprinkle with cheese, garlic powder, and dried basil.
STEP 4: Fold the sides over the filling in each tortilla. Then bring the bottom up tightly over the filling and roll to the top. The seam side should be down.
STEP 5: In a large skillet, melt the butter and place the chicken wraps with the seam down in the pan.
STEP 6: Cook for 3 to 4 minutes over medium heat on each side until the cheese has melted and the wraps are lightly browned.
Expert Tips and Variations
- Topping Ideas. Before rolling each wrap, add in your favorite toppings such as avocado, black beans, corn, or sour cream.
- Spicy Wraps. Use jalapenos, a dash of cayenne pepper, or chilis for more heat.
- How to Freeze Chicken Wraps. After the wraps have cooled completely, place them in a freezer-safe bag or container and freeze for later where they will stay fresh for up to 2 months. To reheat, place them on a baking sheet for 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees.

Just tried these and they were GOOD! I was surprised how fast they went together and how quick the cleanup was. The toasty brown from heating them in butter made them extra good. Thanks–this one’s a keeper!
Love that you all enjoyed them so much, Annette! Thanks for taking the time to let me know. Quick, tasty dinners are the best, right?
Hi! It looks like there is rice in one of them. What type of rice did you use. I would love to make these tonight! They look amazing!
Vannessa, no rice in them at all! I think what you are seeing is either chicken or possibly onion from the salsa. When I use rice for other recipes though, I love using Basmati. It’s not as starchy as white rice, but not as “stiff” as brown and just has an excellent flavor. If you have an Aldi nearby, they have it for a great price!
What kind of salsa do you use
Shannon, I just use whatever I have on hand. Sometimes it’s bought, sometimes it’s homemade. As long as it’s salsa you like, you should be fine!
Mmmmm …. these look so yummy! I’ll have to check with my mother about trying them out sometime. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!
