DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, mix chicken with the beans, tomato, tomato sauce and jalapeno. Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick skillet over low heat. If you know how to heat tortillas in a griddle, then do so, otherwise warm them slightly in the microwave between paper towels. Place one tortilla in a plate. Put about 2 tbs filling in the center of the tortilla, top with a little cheese and lettuce, if desired. Fold the sides of the tortillas over the filling, then fold the side closest to you over the filling and turn burritos over, enclosing the filling. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling. Place seam side down on the skillet so that the burritos get nice and crispy on the outside and the cheese melts. Serve hot.
