The Ultimate Chicken & Black Bean Burrito

BabbleBurrito I don’t care who you are. Burritos rock bananas. You really can’t go wrong with a tortilla stuffed with good stuff.  But, here’s the thing. You’ve never had a burrito like this one.  Not only is it absurdly simple to make, it’s so full of flavor that you might cry a little tear while you eat the sheer goodness that is this meal.  Topped with obscene amounts of melted cheese, a good bit of hot sauce, and fresh chopped cilantro, this burrito is the best danged thing you’ll have for dinner all week. Guaranteed.
BabbleBurrito2The Ultimate Chicken & Black Bean Burrito

  • 2 extra-large flour tortillas
  • 1 large chicken breast, cooked and shredded
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, drained
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together the chicken, black beans, spices, and vinegar until well-mixed.  Zap your tortillas in the microwave until soft (about 20 seconds).  Spoon the chicken & black bean mixture into the center of each tortilla.  Tightly roll the tortillas burrito-style, then transfer to a baking sheet which has been lightly coated with non-stick cooking spray.  Top each burrito with hot sauce and grated cheese.   Transfer to the oven and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 10-12 minutes. Remove burritoes from the oven, top with cilantro and serve with sour cream. Enjoy!
