Low Carb Chicken Burritos

Nothing, I mean absolutely nothing was going to help this dish photograph well.  Ha.  Nothing.  However, it tasted SO good that we had to make it a few days later.  To be perfectly honest, we considered making it a meal prep, but couldn’t quite figure out how to keep the tortilla from getting too soggy…

I guess losing someone never gets easier. Or maybe it does, and I don’t remember things being so tough after losing Paw-Paw so many years ago.  I was a teenager then, and now an adult.  The heart understands more now, and in turn I believe it does hurt more.  With that being mentioned, I’m looking…
