Saucy Chicken Burrito

Chipotle burrito craze has hit us hard!  I mean truly who can turn down a tasty burrito.  Seems like everything tastes better wrapped in a blanket.  Yet those seemingly healthy concoctions are actually very high in sodium, fat and calories.  So when summer hits does that mean give up the burritos??  Well that would suck! 

The answer lies in the cooking!  Get the fry pan sizzling and try this recipe!

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp cilantro
  • 1 diced habanero
  • 2 chopped chicken breasts
  • 1-2 tsp shiracha (depending on desired heat)
  • 1 thin chopped white onion
  • 1 chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 c chopped cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 c sliced mushrooms
  • 1 can of Trader Joes cuban beans
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • Carb Cutting Sonoma Tortillas (this is where often times most of our burrito calories can be found)
  1. In a large fry pan heat olive oil and garlic for 1-2 minutes on high.
  2. Reduce to medium high, add habanero and cilantro.  Cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add chicken breast and shiracha.  Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add chopped onion heat for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add sliced bell pepper, tomatoes, and mushrooms for an additional 5 minutes.
  6. Add the can of Trader Joes mix and spinach.  Cover and cook anther 5-7 minutes until spinach has wilted.
  7. Mix evenly and let rest on low.  Heat up tortillas individually on stove top.
  8. Stuff the burritos and enjoy
