Chicken Burritos

What You Need:

  • 3 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 jar (16 oz size) salsa
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can refried beans
  • 1 (8 oz) pkg shredded taco cheese
  • 8 pcs burrito size tortillas

How to Make It:
  • Place the chicken breasts in a large sauce pan.
  • Cover with the salsa.
  • Add just enough water to cover the chicken.
  • Place over medium high heat.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer 15 minutes.
  • Chicken should be white all the way through when done.
  • Remove the chicken from the pot and cool until easily touched.
  • Shred the chicken.
  • Return the shredded chicken to the pot.
  • Bring back to a boil to reduce the liquid of the mixture looks to watery.
  • When mixture becomes as thick as you like, remove it from the heat.
  • Lay tortilla flat.
  • Place 3 T of refried beans down the middle of the tortilla.
  • Place 4 T of the chicken mixture on top of the beans.
  • Sprinkle with cheese.
  • Fold in the sides of the tortilla and roll until completely closed.
  • Continue until you used all the tortillas.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Lightly spray a cookie sheet with a non stick cooking spray.
  • Lay the burritos on the cookie sheet.
  • Bake 12 minutes or until the burrito just begins to brown.


You can make this ahead of time or make a large batch then keep in the freezer and thaw as you need. Here's how:
  • Wrap each uncooked burrito in wax paper.
  • Place the burritos in a freezer bag.
  • Freeze for up to 3 months.
  • To cook unwrap the burritos.
  • Place in the microwave for about 3 minutes or just until the burrito is beginning to thaw.
  • Then bake as above.


Tips:
You can replace taco cheese with other cheese like sharp cheddar cheese to suit your taste.
You can also replace the chicken with turkey or beef to make it a turkey or beef burrito.
