Chicken Basics: Chicken Burritos

This recipe can be made with either re-fried or black beans. I prefer the re-fried beans that come with green chilies in them, but often find the black beans are quicker to deal with (less sticky, you know?). Either way, this is a yummy quick and easy recipe that makes TWO good sized burritos! So eat a salad on the side and take the other for lunch tomorrow. (Hey, that's two meals for one! It doesn't get better than that!)

Chicken Burritos Recipe

  • Leftover chicken and rice, from Chicken Basics recipe
  • 1/4 can or 1/3 cup either black or re-fried beans
  • two 10" tortillas (these freeze well, if you can't get through a bag before they go bad)
  • 2-4 tbsp of favorite salsa
  • 1/4 cup of shredded cheese (Mexican blend or cheddar work best)
  • Chopped lettuce for salad (I like romaine)
  1.  Open your chosen beans and warm 1/4 can or 1/3 cup. If using black, mix with rice. For re-fried, spread down the middle of the tortilla. 
  2. Dice chicken breast.
  3. Mix diced chicken, rice, salsa, cheese in a bowl and microwave until the cheese is melted. Stir filling to combine.
  4. Spread filling onto tortillas and top with your favorite burrito fillings. (think olives, avocado, guacamole, mmmm)
  5. See my post on how to fold a burrito here, if it's confusing!
  6. Add salad to plate and eat!
