You can make these burritos as spicy as you wish by choosing mild, medium, or hot salsa. If you have it, use leftover rice and cooked chicken breast to make this meal come together even faster. Omit the water if using pre-cooked rice.

Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Burritos

1 tsp canola oil
2 garlic cloves, minced fine
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 1/2 cups cooked, chopped chicken breast
15 oz black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup uncooked instant rice
14 1/2 oz. diced tomatoes
3/4 cup canned, commercial salsa, divided
1/3 cup water
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves
28 g Mozzarella, Part Skim Milk Cheese
1/4 cup cilantro
10 Flour Tortilla, 9 inch
1 Fat-free sour cream for garnish

Recipe Directions for Chicken Burritos

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.

  2. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, onion, and green bell pepper, and cook five minutes, or until vegetables are tender.

  3. Add the chicken, black beans, rice, tomatoes, 1/2 cup of salsa, and the next three ingredients, and reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 10 minutes, or until the rice is tender.

  4. Remove from heat, and stir in the cheese and cilantro. Stir until the cheese is melted.

  5. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the mixture into each of the tortillas, and roll the tortillas tightly. Place in a 9x13-inch baking dish, and top with the remaining salsa.

  6. Bake at 375F for 15 minutes, or until slightly crisp. Top with sour cream.
