As the name implies, this baby is supposed to be HOT. Like:

If you don’t feel tears coming down your face, then you didn‘t do it right.

This spicy chicken and mushroom wrap is the result of weeks of research in our food labs (AKA ‘the kitchen’). The final outcome will depend entirely on how spicy your chillies are. If you feel extremely adventurous, you may try using the Ghost Chillies but you will have to adjust down the quantities we present in the steps below. They are real bad boys, the hottest chilies in the world that are not the result of crossbreeding.

Ok now, we didn’t mean to scare you ☺️ You can also use whatever chillies you have at home and you know you can handle, this burrito will still be amazing. Read our Foodacious Tips below for additional ways to spice it up. 

This recipe consists of a fragrant tortilla wrap, generously coated in a creamy mix of hummus and smoked paprika and then filled with tender cubes of chicken and juicy mushrooms sautéd in spicy oil, garlic, and white wine.

If you are new to the wonderful world of burritos, we'll also explain how to fold the wrap like a pro in a few easy moves. So that your tortilla won't fall apart as you eat it!

So join us below and in no time you’ll be belly-full with the spiciest and yummiest chicken wrap ever

step 1

In a saucepan, heat the extra virgin olive oil with the chilies for 2 minutes. Use chili flakes or whole chilies finely cut, but definitely the spiciest you can find. We recommend ‘ghost chilies’ or ‘California reaper’ as excellent choices.

Next, add the garlic cloves and sizzle for 1 minute or until the garlic is golden but not burnt. You can crush the garlic or thinly slice it. As soon as you start smelling a delicious garlicky scent, then it's ready.

Wash and cut the mushrooms into medium chunks and add them to the saucepan with the chili oil. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes.

Next, add the chicken breast diced into cubes and stir. Pour the white wine and cook at medium/high heat for 2 minutes to crisp the chicken and allow the wine to evaporate. Then, continue cooking with the lid on at medium heat for 7 minutes.

When the mushrooms are soft and the chicken is thoroughly cooked, let the pan sit on the heat without the lid for 3 to 5 minutes to allow the juices evaporating and forming a creamy sauce. At this point, remove any garlic bits that you won’t like to end in your wrap.

In the meantime, mix the hummus with the paprika in a small mixing bowl. If needed, add more paprika to get a nice and bright orange-colored hummus.

If you want to make this wrap more flavorful you should definitely make your own hummus at home. It's so simple and quick with our step-by-step hummus recipe.

Heat the wholemeal tortilla wrap in the oven, microwave or in a clean flat pan until it's soft and warm. Avoid making it hard and crispy or it will crack as you fold it.

Spread two tablespoons of paprika hummus for each wrap leaving more than half of the tortilla free and a couple of inches free on the edges. This way you prevent the filling from leaking when folding the wrap.

Divide the mushrooms and chicken among the wraps with the help of a spoon piling the filling on top of the hummus.

Next, wrap the burrito following these simple steps. Line the wrap so that the half side with filling lies horizontally in front of you. Then fold in the sides of the tortilla almost to touch each other and keep them pulled as you bring up the bottom flap on the side of the filling. Roll the bottom of the tortilla tightly and keep rolling one or two times until it is closed and secured.

Your creamy and spicy chicken mushroom wrap is ready!

Cut it in half if desired or wrap in foil. Enjoy this delicious burrito hot or cold, at home or at work with a side salad 😃.

Foodacious Tips


To spice up this chicken and mushroom burrito, even more, we suggest you top the filling with a hot sauce before folding the wrap. For example, Sriracha sauce, Tabasco, Nando’s hot peri peri sauce, or Cholula hot sauce are excellent choices. Just have a rummage in your cupboard or pop to the supermarket to get your favorite!
