Chicken, Rice, and Black Bean Burritos

23 Jun

Since I only used part of a jar of salsa the other night to make our Quesadilla Chicken Sandwiches, I wanted something to use the rest. So, I immediately thought of Sour Cream Salsa Chicken and the burritos I have made with it, but I decided to skip the sour cream. And, instead of Spanish Rice, I thought why not Cilantro Lime Rice and black beans to be like the burritos we get when we eat out at Chipotle?  They turned out perfect, and one burrito each was more than enough to fill us up. This made about 8 burritos, with a little rice and chicken leftover. Again, more to tomorrow for lunch!

Chicken, Rice, and Black Bean Burritos

Chicken, Rice, and Black Bean Burritos

What you need:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 jar salsa
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 can black beans
Cilantro Lime Rice
Large burrito size tortillas
Shredded cheese

How to make it:

In a small bowl, mix together the chili powder, ground cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and salt.

Spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Add chicken breasts. Sprinkle chicken with seasoning blend, top with salsa. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours. When ready to serve, shred chicken.

In a small pot, heat black beans. Use a slotted spoon to stir and then drain when making the burritos.

Place a large skillet or griddle on stove over low heat. Place a tortilla in the skillet and warm for a few minutes. Remove from heat to counter top or cutting board to assemble burrito. Scoop shredded chicken, rice, black beans and shredded cheese onto the tortilla toward one end. Begin to roll from side closest to you, fold in sides, and roll until completely closed. If desired, cut in half for easier eating.
