Spicy Chicken Burrito's

Yum yum, I'm not a big meat eater and don't really ever eat chicken but this came out so good even I loved it!!!

You don't have to make this spicy at all but we enjoy a little spice sometimes so I added jalapeño's. Also you can use chicken breast cut up or any kind of chicken you have! I had 6 drumsticks so I boiled them earlier in the day and put them in the fridge. I removed the skins and shredded the meat.

What you'll need
Shredded Chicken
1 onion chopped
1 pepper chopped
1 large can of crushed tomatoes
1 small can of corn drained
1 package of Taco seasoning
About 1/8 of a cup of jalapeños or to your taste

In a pot add with a little olive oil cook onions and peppers. At about half done add the chicken and cook a few minutes then add crushed tomatoes. Then add corn and taco seasoning and jalapeños and cook about medium heat till sauce is hot and ready or simmer for a bit while you cook rice.

Minute rice or any rice of your choice
Black beans
2TBSP of butter
1/2 tsp of cumin
1/2 tsp of paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
Handful of fresh cilantro

Cook rice to directions. When done add butter and then all other ingredients except cilantro. Cook on low till beans are warm. Remove from heat and add cilantro.

Now you're ready to roll up your tortillas. I warm mine in the microwave with a damp paper towel on top. Sprinkle some cheese and add chicken and roll up. Serve with rice!!!

Hope you like this recipe. It's easy to make and taste super yummy!!
