Skinny Burrito Grande
This hearty meal with flavor beyond belief has a secret that everyone will want to know.
The secret? That it has fewer than 2 carbs per serving as we've made its beautiful golden tortilla with Inspire Protein Kitchen Pancake
- 1/2 cup liquid egg whites
- 1 scoop Inspire Protein Kitchen Silver Dollar Pancake mix
- 1 cup fresh baby spinach
- 4 ounces sliced or shredded cooked chicken
- 2 tablespoons Ancho-Tomato sauce with additional for serving, if desired
- 1 tablespoon Shredded queso fresco and cilantro for garnish
- Combine the egg whites and the pancake mix along with a pinch of salt and pepper, in a medium bowl until smooth.
- Pour egg mixture into a large nonstick preheated skillet and turn to cover entire pan bottom.
- Cook over medium heat until crepe is solid yet very slightly shiny on top.
- Remove from heat and with a thin spatula loosen the edges of the crepe around the edges and gently slide onto a piece of parchment or waxed paper.
- Layer the spinach, chicken and drizzle with ancho-guajillo sauce.
- Carefuly place your hands under the sides of the crepe and fold the edges towards the middle, then with your thumbs lift the bottom of the crepe and fold it over the middle and sides. Then roll to finish.
- Garnish with cheese and additional sauce if you like. Slice in half at an angle and serve.
This is a complete one handed meal. No need for additional side dishes.
Remember that overfilling the crepe will cause it to break when rolled, less filling is JUST as satisfying, don't worry. This is a generous sized meal as it is.
Can I use a low carb tortilla instead?
No, you may not. That is not this recipe. While I understand the ease of products like that, if we could use Low Carb Tortillas successfully we wouldn't have 95% of Post-Ops experiencing a Regain at one point in their journey.
What can I use instead of the Inspire Pancake Mix?
You may also use the same amount of Inspire Everything Bagel Flatbread Mix. If you don't have that please make another Recipe. In this case, the Pancake or Flatbread mix provides enough stability for the egg crepe to be rolled without cracking while keeping the carbs to a bare minimum. If you choose to go rogue and make your own idea up we cannot say with any certainty that the outcome will even be edible.
Can I use another kind of protein?
YOU BET! 4 ounces of cooked sliced steak, 4 ounces of cooked shrimp or fish would be exceptional in this dish.
Help! When I rolled my crepe up it fell apart!
Cut everything up and eat it from a bowl - it will still be delicious. Next time: try using a slightly smaller pan to cook the crepe in, make sure you are not overcooking it, and please do not overfill the crepe. Too much filling WILL cause the crepe to split apart.
