Lunch has always been my least favorite meal of the day. Breakfast is my jam and it's always easy for me to figure out recipes to make for dinner, but when it comes to lunch, I'm stumped. When I was working at an office, it was common for me to have leftovers (which I'm picky about) or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. That should show you how much of a struggle lunch is for me. So lately I've been trying to come up with easy recipes that work for lunch. This Mexican style flatbread is super easy and packed with delicious flavors!

Flatbreads have always been a favorite lunch or appetizer for me because they're filling but not overly heavy in your stomach like pizza would be. The thinner crust that flatbreads are known for help you to not get full too quickly which is perfect for lunch if you have to go back to working afterwards. These flatbreads literally have all of my favorite flavor combinations, but you could make so many different combinations using chicken, ground beef or even making vegetarian Mexican flatbreads.

For these flatbreads I used prepared naan bread as the base since I had it at the house. If you want to though, you can make your flatbread from scratch, which is super easy to do! There's something quite magical about making bread at home and one batch will make enough flatbread for 5-6 people as a meal, even more if you're making it as an appetizer for a football game or other winter party!

Another thing I love about making these flatbreads for lunch is you're able to customize it based on whoever's eating. For example, Steven doesn't eat beans, so when making his flatbread I would simply omit the beans. If someone else doesn't like spicy foods, you can omit the chile lime aioli that's on top of the flatbread. Because each flatbread is prepared anyway, it's easy to make adjustments for each person's taste preferences.

Whenever Mexican food is involved, there has to be salsa. I have to put salsa on my tacos, nachos, and even flatbreads. My salsa of choice is?Pace? Salsa. The medium heat level is perfect if you want just a bit of spice without losing any of the flavor. They also have a restaurant style peach salsa right now that is incredible!

  1. I'm always on the lookout for unique lunch ideas, and this flatbread just sounds MARVELOUS! Well done!

  2. oh yeah, they call them flat bread, wraps, burrito covers anything and everything but what they are...Tortillas.

    1. This recipe actually uses actual naan bread! It's not meant to be a literal "Mexican flatbread" because that would be more of a tortilla, but instead it's meant to be a play on flatbread with Mexican toppings. 🙂

  3. I have been struggling with lunch ideas lately, too. This sounds so good! I love how colorful it is, and that aioli sounds divine!

  4. I was JUST thinking the other day how I'm going to have to step up my lunch game when I'm staying home with the baby...while teaching I did the exact same thing you mentioned, pb&j or leftovers!! This looks SO good!!!! 🙂

  5. YUM! Madison, this is such a good idea for lunches. I am the same way with not loving lunch options. I quickly get sick of leftovers and as much as I try to make delicious salads, I end up not wanting to eat them when lunchtime comes around. I'm definitely going to try these!

    1. I can eat pasta or rice leftovers for days, but if it's just meat and a veggie it doesn't interest me at all! It's such a struggle, haha. I love that this is so quick and you could honestly make it a million ways!
