Spicy Southwest Chicken and Rice Wrap

Last night I was very tired after work and didn''t feel like cooking but we had chicken in the fridge that I didn't want to go bad so I whipped together this quick and easy recipe I found on the Mrs. Dash website for Spicy Southwest Chicken and Rice Wraps.

1 can (14 ounces) low sodium chicken broth
2 cups Minute® Brown Rice, uncooked
2 Tbsp. Mrs. Dash® Extra Spicy Salt-Free Seasoning Blend
2 cups frozen southwest blend vegetables
2 cups cooked chicken, diced
4 whole wheat tortillas
1 cup low-fat cheddar cheese, shredded, optional
1/2 cup light sour cream, optional

1. BRING chicken broth to a boil in a medium saucepan.
2. ADD Minute Brown Rice, Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy Salt-Free Seasoning Blend, vegetables and chicken; stir. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.
3. WARM tortillas and divide rice mixture evenly onto tortillas. Top with cheese and sour cream, if desired, and roll into desired shape. 
I served the wraps with a side of spinach that I cooked in a little chicken broth and garlic. This was the perfect quick and easy weeknight meal.

Question: What is your favorite quick and easy weeknight meal?
