Chicken Burritos

Recipe by Allison R

Easy to put together! My Mom gave this to me when I moved into my first apartment. It makes 8 big ones so you'll definitely have tasty leftovers! I like to add some chili powder and garlic to my chicken while it cooks, too. Also, I always keep a bag of frozen breasts ready to go; they're great for this recipe. Go ahead and substitute any meat, steak or ground turkey. Delicious served with sour cream or guacamole!

I am on a casse-roll right now, so this baked burrito recipe was just perfect. In addition to salsa, I made my own with chopped canned tomatoes and jalepenos, garlic and spices. I also added canned green chiles and used black beans instead of refried. I spiced up the chicken with chili powder and ceyenne pepper. I also added chopped green onions to the top for the last 5 minutes and served with avocado and a small dollop of sour cream. Delicious.
