Fiesta Chicken Burritos

My mom recently gave me this delicious, simple recipe for shredded chicken burritos. The prep time is minimal and they cook up in the blink of an eye!

Fiesta Chicken Burritos

For filling:
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 large can of chicken breast cutlets, drained and shredded with a fork
1 cup shredded cheese (I used low fat sharp cheddar)
1/2 cup salsa, plus more for serving with burritos
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. cumin

1-2 packages of tortillas (I used whole wheat)

Mix together all ingredients for filling. Heat a skillet on the stove top to medium or medium high heat. Soften a tortilla in the microwave for 15 seconds {for easy rolling}. Spoon about 1/3 c. of filling into center of heated tortilla; fold both sides in, then roll up. Avoid gaps where the filling could ooze out while cooking. Spray skillet with non-stick spray. {Depending on the size of your skillet, you can cook 2-3 burritos at the same time}. Place burritos in skillet, then place a heavy pan directly on top of the burritos to flatten them and hold them together while cooking {so make sure the bottom of the pan is clean!}. Cook 2-3 minutes on one side until golden brown. Remove pan and cook burritos on the other side, again until golden brown {pan not needed on this side}. Re-spray pan between cooking sets of burritos.

Serve warm with salsa. Enjoy!
