chicken, rice, bean burrito

I want to call these, "Chevy's chicken fajita burritos", but I don't want to confuse anyone. They don't have onions or bell peppers in them like fajitas. My husband and I lived in Oregon just over 10 years ago and we used to eat out at Chevy's a lot(back when we could afford to eat out more, before kids). We always ordered the chicken fajita burrito. SO yummy! I'm not sure why they called it a fajita burrito because it didn't seem to have onions or peppers in it, I'm guessing it is because they must have used marinated chicken like they use for their fajitas. Last time we went to Chevy's when we lived in Utah, it wasn't on the menu anymore. This is my version. My husband says it tastes just like Chevy's, but it has been over 10 years since we have had one from Chevy's, so don't take our word for it:) But I will tell you that this burrito is SUPER yummy and simple!!

I feel like I have been apologizing a lot for my photos lately and here I am again!! I forgot to take a picture when I made these for dinner, so this is a leftover burrito that my husband ate for lunch the next day. Not a great photo. Maybe, I should not try taking a picture when I am hungry and my hands are shaking.

chicken, rice and bean burrito

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 can drained and rinsed black beans
  • 1 cup salsa (click on "salsa" for the best salsa recipe)(my opinion:))
  • 6-8 flour tortillas(depending on size) mmm....LOVE homemade tortillas
  • 1/2-1 cup grated cheese(I used provolone)

Directions: Cook and chop chicken(I cooked mine in a cast iron skillet with butter, salt and pepper. This would also be great if you marinated the chicken and grilled it before chopping). Add rice, beans, salsa and cheese to the chicken. Spoon mixture into tortillas. I have put these in a baking dish and baked them at 375 until hot. This time I put them in the cast iron skillet and put a pan on top for a couple minutes and then flipped and did the same to the other side(kind of like a panini). Enjoy!!
