Out of feeling stuck in a dinner rut, and wanting to make something both my boyfriend and beautiful friend Maddie would enjoy, I whipped up this quick and versatile recipe for chicken burritos! Yummy, bacony, and a little bit spicy. Enjoy with your favourite taco toppings!
This delicious and easy tomato sauce is so versatile and can also be served over pasta or another grain.
5 flour tortillas
2 cups cooked brown rice
2 T tomato sauce
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
9 large leaves romaine, chopped
1 1/2 cups black beans
1 1/2 cups chopped chicken
2 strips bacon, cut into small pieces
1. Combine tomato sauce and chicken broth in small bowl, stirring until smooth. Add all spices.
2. Add bacon to a medium skillet and cook over medium heat about five minutes. Set bacon aside; leave grease in pan.
3. Add chopped chicken and beans to pan and cook stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. Add in the beans and then pour the broth mixture over top. Stir well; simmer on low about 15 minutes. Turn off heat to cook completely.
4. To assemble burritos, line rice, meat/bean mixture, and lettuce leaves up on centre of each tortilla. Roll up as desired. Serve with toppings of choice (ie. shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa).
