Quick and Easy Chicken Burritos These burritos are very easy to make and can be prepared ahead of time, refrigerated or frozen for months! I made a batch and put it in the freezer for my husband for work. You can also use leftover chicken, I actually had half a rotisserie chicken left over so I shredded it combined it with the cheese, cilantro and avocados and wrapped them up. Burritos are such a fantastic way to have meals on hand and they can be prepared in minutes.

 

Ingredients:

4 burrito sized tortillas (corn tortillas for gluten-free), warmed

1 pound cooked chicken, sliced or shredded

1 large avocado, diced

1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

1/4 cup salsa Verde

1/4 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

 

Directions:

  • Heat oil in a large fry pan. Add crushed garlic and chicken strips. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in sliced onions, capsicum, diced tomatoes and spices. Cook gently for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat tortillas according to directions on packet.
  • Add peeled and diced avocado to chicken mixture.
  • Divide mixture into equal portions. Spoon mixture onto each burrito. Roll up and secure with a toothpick. Serve burritos while warm with a dollop of reduced fat yoghurt.

 

Option: Use cilantro lime grilled chicken or tequila lime grilled chicken instead of plain chicken.
