Chicken Burritos

Posted by Vanessa in Cooking, August 25, 2011

Let me just preface this by saying that we’re not talking fancy, gourmet food today.  (Not that I ever would call my food that.)  But today is more about a quick, super easy lunch that The Phoenix and I have become quite fond of lately.  With a new baby, I wanted to stock up our freezer, and while searching for recipes, stumbled upon this.  It’s become one of our go-to lunches and I love that I can prepare these one day, stick them in the freezer, and have a good lunch for both of us in no time many days over.

We like them heated in the oven because then you get a good crispness to the tortilla, but you can also microwave them for a minute or two as well if you’re in a time pinch.  And they are best generously topped with this restaurant-style salsa.  Trust us.  Yum.  No need to thaw, these can go straight from freezer to oven.  (Just don’t forget to take the plastic wrap off.)

Chicken Burritos

recipe from Once A Month Mom
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes.
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes.
  • Ready in 30 Minutes.
  • Makes: 8 Servings
  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken breast
  • 1 ounce taco seasoning
  • 14.5 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup shredded cheese, like cheddar or mexican cheese blend
  • 8 large flour tortillas
  • Mix taco seasoning with chicken. Divide seasoned chicken, beans, and cheese among tortillas. Roll up, burrito style.
  • To Freeze : Wrap burrito in plastic wrap or wax paper. Place burritos in freezer bag, seal, label, and freeze.

Serve with salsa and sour cream, if desired.
