Super Simple Chicken Burrito or Quesadilla

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by Shawn C

My mother in law made these one night and they are great and fast. When you don't have time to cook. Kids can make the burrito by themselves. Add other ingredients that you like- we prefer it simple!

Very nice. Scaled the recipe back to serve 2. I had some odds and sods of the ingredients mentioned leftover, so this was convenient. I did add some sliced green onions and used cheddar for one and brie on another. :)
