Chicken Burritos

It’s been a while since I shared a Mexican style recipe, so here we go!  These chicken burritos are pretty quick and easy to make and very flavorful.  The rice was a little more “saucy” than I usually like, so next time I’m planning to try another recipe that I just found, but I think a lot of people will really like this one, and I hope you do as well.

Recipe for Chicken Burritos:

For Chicken:
1 1/2 lb chicken breast (boneless, skinless)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons Chili Powder
1 teaspoon Lawry’s Seasonsing Salt
For Rice Mixture:
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 1/2 cups Minute rice
1 1/3 cups water
1 can condensed tomato soup
For Burritos:
Flour Tortillas
Sour Cream
Cheddar Cheese
Taco Sauce or Salsa
Lettuce, Tomato, etc.
Directions:  Chop chicken into bite sized pieces.  Place oil in skillet. Heat on medium high.  Add chicken, 1 teaspoon and cook for about ten minutes or until browned.  Pour off fat.  Then add Lawry’s and chili powder. (Use different amounts or even different spices if you desire.)  
In a separate skillet, add soup, water, and chili powder.  Heat to boil.  Stir in rice.  Cover and cook on low till rice is down. (about 5 minutes). If you’re not using Minute Rice, follow cooking times on package.
Follow instructions on tortilla package for heating. I just heat mine for a few seconds in the microwave.  Then put your rice, chicken, and toppings together into a delicious meal and enjoy!
