Posted in : MAIN DISHES on by : Admin

Chicken, peppers, rice, beans, corn, and avocado all seasoned with tasty tex-mex flavors and stuffed in a flour tortilla, all ready in 30 minutes or less!


  • 2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, (pounded to 3/4 inch thickness)
  • 1-2 tbsp taco seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can yellow corn, drained and rinsed
  • 1-2 cups cooked white or brown rice
  • 1/4 cup packed cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • 4 large burrito-sized flour tortillas
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • optional: salsa, sour cream, hot sauce, ranch dressing, fresh limes for squeezing
  • Instructions

  • Use about 1-2 teaspoons of the taco seasoning and salt and pepper to taste to season the chicken on both sides.
  • Drizzle a large pan or skillet with oil and cook the chicken over medium heat for about 5-6 minutes on each side until cooked through. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil to keep the heat in, and set aside.
  • Add red pepper and onions to the pan (no need to clean first) and saute for 1-3 minutes until tender (if pan is too dry you can drizzle a little bit more oil throughout).
  • Add black beans, corn, and rice to the pan, sprinkle with remaining taco seasoning, and stir for 4-5 minutes. Taste, and add a bit of salt and pepper to taste if needed. Sprinkle with cilantro and stir to combine.
  • Assemble burritos by placing a large scoop of the rice mixture in the center of each tortilla, then topping with chicken (sliced or diced) and avocado slices. Roll up burritos (stick a toothpick in to hold it if you need to) and serve with your favorite condiments like salsa, sour cream, or ranch dressing.
