Chicken Burritos are one of those ‘go-to’ meals in my house. They are quick & easy to make, taste great, & the leftovers are even better. The ingredients can easily be switched around to your tastes, or to what you have on hand. This is also a great recipe for the Pantry Challenge since it uses up a lot of items in my pantry stockpile – like rice, beans, & corn.
I start off with with 2-3 chicken breasts, cut into small chunks & a large diced onion. Just saute the chicken in a couple tablespoons of butter for a few minutes on medium-high heat, then add in the onion, continuing to cook until the chicken is done. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
Jalapenos are really good added in with the onion too, but my youngest daughter claims she has a ‘heat sensitive tongue’ so my husband & I just add some pickled jalapenos & hot sauce to ours when we spoon the chicken filling into the tortilla.
Roll up, & serve with your choice of toppings. Cilantro & hot sauce are my personal favorites!
