Chicken Burritos

Tiffany Ash


My husband loves burritos, so I created this recipe a while back and it seems like every week he wants me to make them. I hope you all will love them as much as we do.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These chicken burritos are really tasty. It's a quick and easy weeknight meal (even a beginner cook can prepare this). The seasoning from the rice and the Rotel gives these a little kick. Pan frying the burrito melts the cheese and sour cream and mixes with all the other ingredients. Makes these so good!


1 box
Zatarain's Spanish rice
1 1/2 c
chicken broth (low sodium)
2 Tbsp
margarine or butter
1 can(s)
black beans
1 can(s)
Rotel diced tomatoes with lime juice and cilantro
1 pkg
Tyson grilled chicken breast strips
1 pkg
tortillas, flour
1 c
shredded cheese (three cheese blend)
1 c
sour cream
lime (squeezed into burrito mix)
1/2 c
cilantro, fresh (rough cut)

How to Make Chicken Burritos


  • 1Combine all ingredients (chicken broth, butter, Rotel chopped tomatoes, black beans, chicken and Zatarain's rice) into deep pan and cook to the directions on the box of Zatarain's Spanish Rice.
  • 2When burrito mixture has finished steaming, take three to four tortillas at a time and heat in the microwave for 30-40 seconds making it easy to wrap the burritos. Add sour cream and cheese to your liking, then add mix and wrap.
  • 3Heat oil in a pan and cook burritos on each side to a nice golden brown. Set to the side on to a paper towel to soak up any excess oil. Serve and enjoy!
