  2. With a #16 scoop (1/4 cup), place Cilantro-Lime Rice mixture down the middle of the tortilla, leaving room around the edges to fold in

  4. Add ¼ oz (1 Tablespoon) of shredded cheese over sauced chicken
  5. Finish with a #16 scoop (¼ cup) of Black Bean & Corn Salad
  6. Wrap tortilla tightly and serve.  Can store in refrigerator for up to 3 days if serving cold
