How to Make Chicken Burritos – Red Beans Included


Making burritos is simple and the most of people enjoy burritos as a quick to prepare lunch or dinner. I usually make my burritos using a chicken breasts, cut into chunks. The most favorite combination to make a burrito filling in our family is a chicken with red beans.

I don’t make the chicken burritos too much spicy usually. Adding a cayenne red pepper makes the burritos spicy enough. Those who prefer to enjoy eating a very spicy burritos, can add the hot tomato salsa on the top of filling before wrapping up the burritos.

I like to prepare the chicken for burritos in advance. It makes chicken tasting even more delicious, once it has enough time to absorb all the spices. I combine the chicken with all the spices in the large bowl. Always use the larger bowl than the one you thought you’d need. :) I put the chicken into the fridge to let it rest for at least one hour. Also you can prepare your chicken a day before.

The rest of preparing your chicken burritos is very quick and easy. It is not necessary to overcook the chicken. I usually cook it for 5 – 7 minutes until cooked through, stirring constantly. The chicken will start to produce quite enough juices. I wait until the juices reduce slightly, before adding the red beans finally. I combine chicken with red beans, stirring for additional 1-2 minutes. Then I remove my burrito filling from the heat.

Heat your wheat tortillas slightly and arrange the chicken and red beans filling in the middle of each of them. Wrap the tortillas tightly to make burritos and serve immediately.

I hope you will enjoy making your homemade chicken burritos and you will get inspired by my simple recipe. Looking forward to receiving your comments below. :)
