creamy chicken and corn burritos

Recipe by

This is a riff on a recipe I'd been wanting to try for a long time, but the seasonings and proportions didn't quite fit our taste. So I added a little bling in the form of chile seasonings, oregano and more garlic. And perhaps more cheese. We like Colby Jack and Monterey Jack for this, but you can use any cheese that is to your liking. If you don't have Penzy's spices, jazz the filling up with more chile powder or cumin. This recipe generously feeds two, but if you want to expand to four, you could certainly serve these packets of deliciousness along side some Spanish rice, beans or salad,
