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.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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. So good! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

  2. When 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.
