.:Chicken-Bean Burritos:.

These are super tasty!

- 2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 can (15 oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 c cooked rice
- 1/2 c frozen kernel corn
- 2 c shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
- 2 c mild or medium salsa
- 1 t chili powder
- 1/2 t salt
- pinch black pepper
- 12 (8") flour tortillas
- 1/2 c chopped green onions

- Boil chicken until chicken is tender. Let cool and cut into small pieces. (You could probably also shred it if you prefer.)
- Combine chicken, beans, rice, and corn.
- Stir in 1 c of cheese and 1 c of salsa
- Add chili powder, salt, pepper and mix well
- Place approximately 1/3 c of filling down the center of each tortilla and roll up
- Place tortillas in greased 9x13 baking dish
- Spread remaining salsa down the center of the tortillas
- Cover with foil and bake for 20 min at 375 degrees
- Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining cheese
- Bake, uncovered for 10-15 min at 425 degrees until cheese is melted
- Sprinkle with chopped green onions

Yields 6-8 servings

You could probably add more salsa or enchilada sauce over the top of the burritos before they baked if you like them a little bit more smothered.
