In the Kitchen- Grilled Chicken Burritos

Grilled Chicken, Bean, and Cheese Burritos
I  made these for dinner last week, they were really good, so I thought I would share!  I threw them together with what I had on hand, and could fix quickly (since I waited till an hour before dinner to start thinking about a dinner plan).  These are pretty clean, and are perfect for a quick throw together dinner.  You can use rotisserie chicken, or leftover grilled chicken if you have it, that would save even more time. 
Burritos that are high in protein, low in fat, tasty, and easy, sounds like a winner to me! 



Serves: 6


6 whole wheat tortillas
1 chicken breast, cooked and shredded 
1 can fat free refried beans
1 cup shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup jarred red salsa
1/2 cup jarred salsa verde (you could sub with a small can green chilies)
Cooking spray (or olive oil mister)


Combine refried beans and red salsa, heat in the microwave for 3 minutes.  Combine shredded chicken and salsa verde.  Place a large heaping spoonful of refried bean mixture onto the center of a tortilla, add a layer of the shredded chicken mixture, then top with shredded cheese. Fold the tortillas, sided in first, then roll, tucking all the ingredients in neatly.  Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat, spray the outside of the tortillas with cooking spray, and sear on two sides until golden and slightly crispy.
