Recipe: Mini Chicken Burritos

I haven’t gone grocery shopping in a while, so today’s lunch was more of a “this is what I have in the fridge, how can I turn that in to a meal?”

I have to say that I came up with some really awesome chicken burritos.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2-3 cans of canned chicken meat (I usually buy this stuff for the cat, but it’s made for humans)
  • 1 package Lawry’s taco seasoning
  • 1 package of flour tortillas
  • a little bit of parsley
  • white rice
  • Colby and Monterey jack cheese – shredded (Kraft sells this in a bag)

First cook up some rice. Then add a little bit of parsley to the rice. This just adds some texture to the overall burrito (I stole this idea from Qdoba).

Next, grill up the chicken until it’s all stringy and falling apart. Then mix in water and the taco seasoning (I know this is for beef but trust me it tastes awesome on chicken… I stole this idea from that old Wendys southwest chicken salad) Let it boil until most of the water is gone. (you may want these to be a little juicy – your call)

I grilled the tortilla shells on my George Foreman grill, but you can just put them in the microwave too. The key here is to get them nice and hot so the shell sticks to itself when you fold it into a burrito.

Insert chicken, cheese, rice into burrito and fold it over. Enjoy!

That was my lunch today. It tasted good so I thought I’d share it.
