Burritos are super easy and so versatile, I mean you could wrap just about anything in a tortilla and call it a burrito. However these chicken burritos are probably one of my favorite quick and easy meals.
This recipe can be easily doubled to eat throughout the week. Or you can freeze the chicken in freezer bags for an easy meal later.
- 1 lb chicken tenders or boneless breasts
- 1 pkg taco seasoning
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 can black beans
- 1 can pinto beans
- 3 cups shredded cheese ( I use a mixture of pepper jack and cheddar)
- 6-8 burrito sized tortillas
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- pinch of chopped cilantro
- juice of 1 lime
- Garlic Lime Rice
- 2 cups cooked white rice ( I use long grain rice)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro (or more if you like it)
- Juice of 2 limes
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- Pico De Gallo
- 3 Roma tomatoes, cored and diced small
- 1 cup onion finely diced
- 1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Juice of 1 lime
- In a slow cooker add chicken, salsa and taco seasoning. Cook for 2 hours on high
- When chicken is done shred with two forks allowing it to mix with the juices. Add juice of 1 lime and cilantro
- In a large pot add butter and garlic, cook until fragrant about 1 minute. Add cooked rice and lime juice, cilantro and salt and mix until combined.
- Add some shredded chicken, rice, and beans into the tortillas then add cheese (about ¼ cup each) and Pico De Gallo. Wrap and set aside.
- Heat a skillet on medium low and add olive oil, add the wrapped burritos seam side down and heat for 4-5 minutes turning the burritos every minute so they don't burn. You just want the tortilla to get a little crispy. Serves 6-8
- Garnish with guacamole and sour cream
- **Notes** You can keep the burritos wrapped individually in saran wrap in the refrigerator for a quick meal. Throw them in the microwave for a minute before crisping up in the pan to make sure they are hot all the way through.
