Moms and Dads like wraps because they’re neat and compact–so beware: ours is messy and spicy. This fiery combination of buffalo chicken in a modern wrap is guaranteed to drip. Get out the big napkins and have a ball!

2 tablespoon hot pepper sauce, such as Frank’s RedHot

3 tablespoon white vinegar, divided

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 pound chicken tenders

2 tablespoon reduced-fat mayonnaise

2 tablespoon nonfat plain yogurt

Freshly ground pepper, to taste

1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

4 8-inch whole-wheat tortillas

1 cup shredded romaine lettuce

1 cup sliced celery

1 large tomato, diced

Step 1
Whisk hot pepper sauce, 2 tablespoons vinegar and cayenne pepper in a medium bowl.

Step 2
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken tenders; cook until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add to the bowl with the hot sauce; toss to coat well.

Step 3
Whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, pepper and the remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar in a small bowl. Stir in blue cheese.

Step 4
To assemble wraps: Lay a tortilla on a work surface or plate. Spread with 1 tablespoon blue cheese sauce and top with one-fourth of the chicken, lettuce, celery and tomato. Drizzle with some of the hot sauce remaining in the bowl and roll into a wrap sandwich. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
