Chicken Burritos

This is a wonderfully easy recipe for chicken burritos.  I made it up as I went along after seeing a recipe for fajitas.    It is a great way to use up extra chicken you might have! Sorry that I don’t have a picture…they all got eaten before I remembered to snap a pic!

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 small onion,  minced

1 tsp. minced garlic

1 hot pepper, minced (or more to taste)

3-4 cups cooked chicken in bite-sized pieces

11 oz. can southwestern style corn

1 pkg. taco seasoning

3/4 c. water

1-1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese

6 soft shell tortillas

In a skillet heat the olive oil.  Add the onion, garlic, and hot pepper. Stir and saute until tender.  Add chicken and corn. Stir and cook until chicken is lightly browned.  Add taco seasoning and water.  Stir and cook for about 8 minutes.  Spoon meat mixture onto the tortilla shells. Top with grated cheese and roll up.  Serve with sour cream and salsa.  If you desire, you can also add about 1 c. of black beans to the mixture.
