Easy Chicken Burritos
Does this time of year leave you running around like crazy? Soccer, baseball practice, end of school trips? Trying to be 10 places at once leaves little time for your family to actually sit down for dinner together let alone spend time in the kitchen making dinner. Tonight try these easy chicken burritos that will get everyone and dinner to the table within 20 minutes.
What does dinnertime look like in your family?
Growing up sitting down to dinner with my family was something that my mom made a priority. Even though she was a single mom and worked different shifts as a local factory she always made it work. I’m thankful to her for that because I carried on the tradition with my family. If we are at home, we are eating together no matter what. No tablets or phones just eating and having conversations about our day. Now let’s get started with this simple recipe for easy chicken burritos that isn’t simple on taste.
The beauty behind this dinner is using already cooked chicken. I always keep shredded chicken on hand for shredded chicken recipes like this or my Chicken & Mushroom Subs. The same holds true for pulled pork. I will make a double batch so I can make BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza one night then save the other half to make Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese another night. Double duty cooking is another way to make dinnertime doable on busy weeknights.
Start these easy chicken burritos by preheating the oven to 375 degrees and greasing a 9×13 pan. To the bottom of the pan add about 1/4 cup of the thick and chunky salsa to the bottom. Shred the cooked chicken into a bowl then add the rest of the salsa to it and stir to combine. Add the chicken mixture to a flour tortilla one at a time then roll up and place seam side down in the pan. Reserve about a 1/2 cup of the chicken to add to the top. Roll up and repeat with the remaining 5 tortillas.
Once all the chicken burritos are made finish by adding the remaining chicken to the top then top with the cheese. Bake uncovered in the oven for 20 minutes until the cheese is all melted on top. Shred some lettuce, chop up tomatoes and any other toppings you like. And here you are….
