Chicken and Black Bean Salsa Burritos
Adapted and modified from source:
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ cup cheese shredded
  • 3 cans (5 oz) chicken breast
  • 4 whole wheat tortillas
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the beans, green onions, lemon juice, cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt in a small bowl.
  2. Rub the chicken breasts with the chili powder, pepper and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook the chicken in a skillet over medium-high heat (350 degrees in an electric skillet) for 5 minutes. Turn and cook until done, 4-5 minutes longer. Let chicken cool; slice into strips or chunks.
  3. Divide cheese evenly between tortillas. Top the cheese with equal amounts of chicken and black bean salsa mixture. Roll up the burritos and wrap each one in foil. Bake burritos until the cheese melts, about 15 minutes.
